Samsung Fixes Android 8.0 Oreo Update For Galaxy S7 And S7 Edge

Earlier, Samsung Galaxy S8 was also hit with the same hiccup.

Right after rolling out the Android 8.0 Oreo update for the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, Samsung had put it on hold due to some technical issues. As reported by some UK users, after they updated their device with the new firmware, the device was getting rebooted. Thankfully, not all the users got affected. The Korean giant immediately figured this out and accordingly brought up the patches for the same in next two days. The glitch was reported from Canada as well.

Right after fixing the issue, Samsung confirmed the recommencement of the Android 8.0 Oreo update. The new firmware versions for Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge are G930FXXU2ERE8 and G935FXXU2ERE8. The new update comes packed with Android 8.0 Oreo software, Samsung Experience 9.0, and April security patches.

A statement on Samsung’s official European help forum confirmed the flaw by saying, “Following a limited number of cases where Galaxy S7 devices have rebooted unexpectedly with the Android 8.0 Oreo update, we have temporarily stopped the rollout of the update. We are investigating the issue internally to ensure that the impact to the affected devices is minimized and the rollout of the update can resume as quickly as possible.

The same information was also posted on the Notices section of Samsung’s Canadian help forum, which reads, “Galaxy S7/S7 edge Android O upgrade is pending a fix for a technical issue discovered post initial rollout, Updates will be shared as available”. 

In next two or three weeks, Android may also release its next OTA, which will include PiP mode, autofill API and the May security patch.

Few of the Android 8.0 Oreo update includes:

  • Better public Wi-Fi connections
  • New emojis
  • Picture-in-picture mode
  • Multi-window feature
  • Revamped notifications and ‘Notification Dots’
  • Google Play Protect
  • Autofill and smart text selection
  • Better battery performance and more.

Earlier this year, a similar issue struck Galaxy S8 and the T-Mobile Galaxy Note 8 users while updating with Android 8.0 Oreo update. Though Samsung fixed the bug and resumed the rollout a couple of weeks later. It is not at all encouraging to see hiccups in devices and we hope, Samsung will take a serious note of it. 

If you are still lingering with the old version on your Galaxy S7, its time to get your hands on the latest Android 8.0 Oreo update and taste the new OS.
