The Samsung Galaxy S7 Oreo update is reportedly in testing so today we want to take a look at a few things that should have you excited about the next big upgrade for the Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 Edge, and Galaxy S7 Active.
As we enter the month of February, Samsung Galaxy device owners are getting antsy for Android 8.0 Oreo.
Samsung’s starting with the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, but the Android Oreo roll out should expand to other devices soon after those updates start rolling out.
The company still hasn’t produced a list of devices getting the Android 8.0 Oreo upgrade, but we’ve put together an unofficial list thanks to leaks, rumors, and information from Samsung’s carrier partners.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 Oreo update isn’t official, but all signs point to a future upgrade for all Galaxy S7-branded devices in the United States and around the world.
Several prominent Samsung-centric blogs claim that the Galaxy S7 Oreo update’s entered testing alongside updates for the Galaxy A5, Galaxy A3, and the Galaxy Tab S3.
We expect the Galaxy S7 to get a pretty robust version of Android Oreo, but there’s a chance Samsung leaves out some prominent features. Older devices often miss out on features due to hardware limitations.
We don’t have an official list of Galaxy S7 Android 8.0 Oreo features just yet, but we can take you through some potential highlights thanks to a leak from Vietnam. One lucky Galaxy S7 user appears to be running Android 8.0.
While many of Oreo’s features come from Google, others are part of Samsung’s Experience user interface. Samsung’s version of Oreo comes with Samsung Experience 9.0.
In this guide we’ll go over some these exciting changes and we’ll also take you through some potential disappointments.
Bug Fixes & Enhancements
Many Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge users are still dealing with software issues on Android 7.0 Nougat. Updates have corrected several bugs and performance issues, but problems continue to linger.
Samsung's Android Oreo update won't fix everything, but we expect the Galaxy S7 Oreo update to deliver fixes for some Android Nougat problems.
Major Android updates like Android 8.0 Oreo have been known to correct performance issues like severe battery drain, busted Wi-Fi, and broken Bluetooth, user interface lag, random reboots, and random freezes/lockups.
These fixes might not be listed in the official Android 8.0 Oreo change log, but there's a good chance some of you see improvements after transitioning from Nougat to Oreo.
The Galaxy S8 Android 8.0 Oreo update includes support for high quality audio codecs like AAC and Sony LDAC, and improvements to Find My Mobile. We could see Samsung bring some of these enhancements over to the Galaxy S7.
If you're currently struggling on Nougat, make sure you keep your eyes out for the Galaxy S7 Oreo update. It could have a tremendous impact on your phone's performance.
