After certain ambiguities regarding whether the Galaxy S7/S7 Edge will receive Android Oreo anytime soon or not.
As first shared by folks on Reddit, it looks like both handsets are now being updated to Android 8.0 Oreo via an over-the-air (OTA) software update. The firmware version should read G930FXXU2ERD5 for the S7 or G935FXXU2ERD5 for the S7 edge, and it'll weigh in at around 1.27GB. With this brand new update, your Galaxy S7/S7 edge will be running on the easy-going Samsung Experience UI 9.0, and your device will be defended with the latest April Security Patch.
A noteworthy aspect of the Android Oreo is the Rescue Party feature, which helps the device recover from constant boot loops.
If you come under the aforementioned categories of Galaxy S7 models users, the time has arrived to trigger the update section.
