Galaxy S7 And Galaxy S7 Edge May Get Oreo Soon

Verizon has begun rolling out a new update for the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge. All US carrier versions of the 2016 flagship handsets - including the ones branded by AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon - as well as unlocked variants have reportedly received Android Oreo certification from the Wi-Fi Alliance. These certifications are normally an indication that an update's release isn't that far off. However, there are no exact dates when it comes to software updates, but you should expect the Update to arrive by the end of April or maybe in Early or Mid May 2018. On the bright side, U.S. carriers actually did a pretty decent job of rapidly spreading the love nationwide, while the world's largest smartphone vendor moved on to updating one of its best 2017 mid-rangers to the latest Android flavor. As always, the rollout will be incremental in nature and not all users will get it in one go.

Sadly (and confusingly), a number of Verizon subscribers claim to have only been able to renew the security patch level on their Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge units after the latest update.

Separately, in an update in February this year, price of the Galaxy S7 Edge was slashed officially in the Indian market.
