Re: Android 8.0 Release for Samsung Galaxy S7

Hello, I am going all around and I'm told it will be my service provider that releases the Android 8.0 (Oreo) update! SO... I have a Galaxy S7, registered with Fido, so, would anyone be able to tell me when the Android 8.0 will come to my Galaxy S7? Thanks!

Re: Android 8.0 Release for Samsung Galaxy S7

Probably "NEVER" is a fair answer. The phone is > 2 years old. I doubt Samsung will spend time to create the Android 8.0 OS.

 

Keep in mind that Fido cann't release something that it has not received.  In other words, if Samsung didn't create it, then Fido can't release it thus the end user will not get it.

Re: Android 8.0 Release for Samsung Galaxy S7

Hello JesusisLord7,

 

  Welcome to the community!

 

  To clarify a little, the updates would have to be released by Samsung Canada to the mobile providers first. Once the mobile providers receive the update, they will perform their own tests before it gets pushed to devices (see here).

 

  I was skeptical whether the S7 would get the Oreo update. Generally, Samsung only provides updates (software and security) for their two most recent device years. However, it appears as though the S7 might get android 8. That said, it might be a while before your phone gets the update as it is still in the development stage (see here). You should also note that Samsung Canada does not always follow up with all of the updates from Samsung.

 

Hope this helps Smiley

 

Cheers

Re: Android 8.0 Release for Samsung Galaxy S7

You can check and make claims all you want. As far as I know there is no Android 8 for Samsung S7 in sight. There is also no anticipated delivery date as we speak.  I am happy to say that "NEVER" is probably a fair answer.

The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ are the first Samsung Galaxy devices to support Android 8.0 Oreo. Android 8.0 Oreo will soon be available for other Samsung devices in Canada. Users will be able to upgrade their Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+ devices starting March 19, 2018 and Galaxy Note 8 devices starting March 28, 2018. Support for Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 Edge, Galaxy A5 and Tab S3 will be available in Spring/Summer 2018. Support for Galaxy Xcover4, Galaxy A8, Galaxy J3 Prime, Tab A8, Tab Active 2 and Tab A 10.1 will be available later in 2018.

Re: Android 8.0 Release for Samsung Galaxy S7

Not to be rude, but I'm not asking... I just saw on Samsung.ca that it will indeed recieve Oreo. Unless you're a Samsung worker, then I am right 😁
