Galaxy S7 Oreo Update: 8 Reasons to Get Excited & 2 Not To
Your Galaxy S7 Oreo Update Could Be Weeks Away
The Samsung Galaxy S7 Oreo update is reportedly in testing with a release supposedly coming in April. That's great, but most users will likely see their upgrades in May, June, or later.
Samsung's Android roll outs don't happen overnight. It takes the company many weeks to deploy major Android software upgrades. Some Galaxy owners got Nougat late in 2017.
The company might be testing Oreo behind the scenes, but carriers like T-Mobile will also need to test the software and perhaps, tack on some features of their own.
Carriers like T-Mobile, Fido, and Rogers in Canada keep their customers informed about their software testing. Other carriers, like AT&T and Verizon, keep their customers in the dark.
Some of you (those in smaller markets on smaller carriers) are going to be waiting awhile for the Android 8.0 Oreo update so you must remain patient or manually install the software when you're able to.
