New day, new info on the seemingly inevitable, yet never actually happening, Android 8.0 Oreo updates for the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge. This time it's courtesy of the Samsung-run Turkish website that translates to “Are we up to date?” which we've referenced in the past, again in connection with the S7.
Well, the quoted date is now May 18 for the S7 and S7 edge (up from April 13 last time). The Galaxy A3 (2017), A5 (2017), and A7 (2017) will follow next, on June 1 (previously May 25). Obviously, as with last time, those deadlines may or may not be met.
|Samsung Galaxy S7||May 18|
|Samsung Galaxy S7 edge||May 18|
|Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017)||June 1|
|Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017)||June 1|
|Samsung Galaxy A3 (2017)||June 1|
Additionally, the dates for one country don't necessarily apply for the rest of the world, but we're still hoping that once it's all finalized, there's no stopping the global rollout.
G935FXXU2ERE8 is aired today over OTA, at least for BTU again... Still 1 april 2018 security patch!
Samsung has now started rolling out the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge Oreo update. The firmware update is currently being rolled out over-the-air source http://www.smartphonesupdates.com/galaxy-s7-and-s7-edge/
Security updates as well as OS upgrades take WAY TOO LONG ! It took about 3 months to get a new security update since 28 januari and Oreo is still not rolled out. My next phone will definitely not be a Samsung one but a Pixel instead !
