It has hardly been twenty-four hours since the report was published that Samsung is about to release Android 8.0 Oreo for the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge in May and it has already started on the very first day of the month! Yes, the much awaited Oreo update for the S7 and the S7 Edge is now live in the UK and possibly certain other European regions as well, by the time you read this. Now that the rollout has begun, it means that the same update will be arriving in your region pretty soon. It’s a surprising development, albeit a pleasant one.
Seeing how fast the update has been released, it would be safe to say that all Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge models will very likely be running on Android 8.0 Oreo by the previously rumored deadline of May 18. If you are in the UK and you have a Galaxy S7, firmware version G930FXXU2ERD5 should be making its way onto your device via OTA anytime now. On the other hand, the Galaxy S7 Edge users will be seeing the G935FXXU2ERD5 firmware land on their devices.
