Galaxy S7 Oreo update: Android 8.0 update comes to US’ T-Mobile, UK’s EE and O2, and Australian variants

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 OTA before carrier variants, but nothing is given.

You will find the latest update version with its changelog for each of the Galaxy S7 variants at US carriers (T-Mobile, Sprint, AT&T and Verizon) in the table below, one for each of them.

Galaxy S7 Oreo update

Released on 30 April 2018 in Europe; June 7 on Verizon Wireless and June 9 on AT&T

Update [June 9]: Verizon first published the official Oreo changelog for the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge back in April, but this was pulled down after a short while. The Big Red then reuploaded the changelog on its software page earlier this week, confirming that Oreo is a go for the S7 twins. But yet again, the changelog and update have been pulled down with no explanation given as to why.

For how long the wait will go on is only known to Verizon. As for us, we’ll keep an eye on the developments and update this page when the update resumes.
