Update [November 10, 2017]: Blueborne is a security flaw in Bluetooth powered devices, and AT&T is issuing a fix for that on your S7 Active today as software version G891AUCS2BQJ4. The QJ4 OTA also gets you patch for September and October 2017.
Update [March 07, 2017]: The Nougat update for AT&T Galaxy S7 Active has been released today. We don’t have the build no. with us yet, but the Android 7.0 OTA for S7 Active is rolling out as we speak. If you own the device, it’s about time you hit the ‘check for updates’ button in Settings > Software updates. The update brings Samsung Pass and Samsung cloud services too, apart from the usual dose of Nougat upgrade which brings lots of cool features to the rugged Galaxy S7 variant exclusive to AT&T, while also improving on the network reception on the device.
AT&T Galaxy S7 Active Oreo: expected release date
Expected release date: April 2018.
The AT&T S7 Active would take a lot more time than its global variant. Because, it’s an AT&T device, and no device — however good its OEM is — receives updates from carrier at what can be called at proper time.
So, if you are using S7 Active at AT&T, look for the global S7’s release of Android 7.0 Nougat, and then add 2 months for release of Nougat for your device.

You will get some solid under-the-hood improvements that make the device more stable and smooth in operations. Besides that, there are few very cool feature additions, like Autofill, Picture-in-Picture, etc. that make the Oreo update totally must-have.
Moreover, Samsung would also give you Samsung Experience 9.0 with its Android 8.0 update. The SE9.0 UI is a new TouchWiz, and is more cool that its predecessor skin.
