Samsung is currently working hard to roll out Android Oreo software version to all of its compatible units by the middle of May. In line with that, the South Korean giant is expected to roll out the new Android Oreo operating system update for the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge.
In the Samsung Members portal, the company posted an update recently, where the company said that it was “doing its best” to have the update rolled out by the middle of next month. While the schedule on the forum is designed for the South Korean users, though the updates are likely to be pushed all across the globe soon after its debut in the South Korean region.
The US carrier versions of the Galaxy S7-series, as well as the unlocked variants of the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge, have recently received Android Oreo certification from the Wi-Fi Alliance. Samsung Canada previously suggested that the S7 Oreo update would land in the summer.
Alongside the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge, Samsung is all set to bring the Android Oreo update to the Galaxy A5 (2017), Galaxy A7 (2017), and Galaxy Tab S3 LTE and Wi-Fi models in the first half of the year. Update rollouts for these devices are also subject to the development process and prior approval.
On the other hand, the Galaxy A5 (2017) and Galaxy A7 (2017) have already started getting updated to Android Oreo in some regions. The Android Oreo update from Samsung is also expected to include Samsung Experience 9.0 along with several interface-level tweaks.
Earlier this year, the South Korean giant rolled out Android Oreo for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus. The update included features such as new launcher shortcuts, colored media notifications, dual messenger, and a revamped About Menu in Settings, among several other changes. It also came with several Android Oreo core features, including Notification dots, Smart Autofill, Picture-in-Picture mode, and faster boot time.
