Galaxy S7 Active Android Pie update
|Model||Launch OS||Current OS||Android Pie update|
|AT&T||Android 6.0||Android 8.0||Not eligible|
Typically, Samsung rolls out two major OS upgrades to its flagship Galaxy S and Note devices. The Galaxy S7 Active has already received two major OS upgrades, the second one being the recent Android 8.0 Oreo. This means that there’s no official Pie update for the S7 Active, but of course, there will always be room to get wild with the plenty of unofficial Android Pie ROMs out there, among them LineageOS 16.
On the downside, whether there will be room for the S7 Active on the list of supported devices for the various Pie custom ROMs is still in doubt. The device hasn’t had the best of developer support and we don’t expect things to change all of a sudden.
Samsung One UI
Given that Samsung won’t be rolling out official Pie updates to the Galaxy S7 Active, there similarly won’t be an official update to One UI, the successor to Samsung Experience that was launched recently. Unlike the S7 and S7 Edge, we don’t expect much from the developer community in regards to unofficial One UI updates, but if anything happens, well for sure alert you, so stay tuned.
