Oreo for Honor 7X begins rolling out in US

Oreo for Honor 7X begins rolling out in US

Now, Galaxy S7 owners are getting the same sweet treat.

The update comes with firmware version G930FXXU2ERD5 on Galaxy S7 and G935FXXU2ERD5 on Galaxy S7 Edge. The firmware update is now being rolled out over-the-air in the United Kingdom and it's only a matter of time before it's released elsewhere.

Android Oreo, or Android 8, brings a number of new features to the phone, including the aforementioned ability to watch picture-in-picture, better battery management, notification dots and support for new emoji too.

Samsung had promised a May roll-out, and they have kept their word.

As with any other Android update, the Android Oreo update for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge is rolling out as an over-the-air (OTA) package. However, Android OS upgrades are not the only software updates to look forward to, especially for those using older devices that are not eligible for the OS.




The Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge may not be the newest flagships anymore, with the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S9 lines out and about, but they're still powerful devices with plenty to offer.

One Redditor posted a screenshot of the software update screen.

LG announced last week that it would start rolling out the LG G6 Oreo update in the next few days and the company has followed up on its promise today.

Unfortunately for owners outside of the United Kingdom, there is no word on when Android 8.0 Oreo will begin rolling out to other regions.
