Samsung Galaxy S7 update

Find all the Galaxy S7 update news here, along with firmware download links. You will find the links to download the Galaxy S7 firmware in each of the sections divided as per the model no., while there is a guide at the bottom of this article to help you install the update manually, pretty easily.

We have also covered info on Android 8.0 release for the Galaxy S7, separate for each and every model of the device. Because that’s how update rolls out — it never rolls out for all variants of the device in one shot. We usually see unlocked international variant receive the latest Android OS version’s OTA before carrier version, but nothing is given.

So, the above shows that the Android 8.0 is not coming anytime in 2017. In fact, it’s expected only at the end of Q1 2018.

That’s too late? Well, here’s are the reasons. First and foremost, Galaxy S7 isn’t Google Pixel or Nexus device, meaning its 8.0 update isn’t coming from Google straight away, and Samsung would need some good deal of time to customize its Samsung Experience UI for Android 8.0 update, which means delay of 3 about months from the time Google releases the 8.0 update to eligible Pixel and Nexus sets.Well, long story short, you should be seeing the Galaxy S7 score an Android 8.0 (Oreo?) update sometime in March-April 2018.

Next, Galaxy S7 is no longer Samsung’s flagship device, which Galaxy S8 is. As far as Android 8.0 update is concerned, well, this means that Galaxy S8 would receive the 8.0 OTA before Galaxy S7. A good mark for the Galaxy S7 8.0 update release is about 2 months from the time Samsung rolls it for the S8 sets.

Kapil still loves his Galaxy S2 i9100! No, really. And Galaxy Nexus! Need we say more what kind of guy he is? And he's also a die-hard Liverpool FC fan. Email: kapil@theandroidsoul.com

    Do you have to root your device to do this? I have an SM-G930F on AT&T (in the US) and I wanted to put Nougat on it but I can’t if I need to root the device because I use Good.

    I don’t see any mention of the US Unlocked versions – SM-G930U & SM-G935U. These phones are still on Marshmallow as of 4/25/17. The December 1 security update came a week or so before Christmas, then nothing until March 27, when the March 1 update went out. After months of contacting Samsung via email, phone, and on Samsung forums, they have finally promised to adopt a monthly security update cadence for these phones, and to update to Nougat “in 4 to 6 weeks” which given the date the statement was made, should be between May 11 and May 25. Still waiting to see about the monthly security cadence.
    Needless to say, most owners of these unlocked phones are very dissatisfied with Samsung’s level of support for them.

    Hey Kapil,
    Can I ask where you heard about that update regarding the G930U? This is the only place I’ve seen it mentioned, and nobody on the Samsung Community forums has even been able to get it on SmartSwitch. Samsung has been delaying it, supposedly because they’re waiting for one more of the major carriers to approve it – though it’s not clear why the unlocked build needs approval, considering it’s supposed to be carrier independent. Nonetheless, email messages from Samsung Mobile Security, posted in the Samsung Community forums say they’re waiting for approval from the carriers.
    Anything you can tell me to clear this up would be appreciated.
