Samsung is rolling out the Android 8.0 Oreo update for all Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge users. The update brings new Samsung Experience 9.0 and April security patch as well. With the update, both the devices get all Android Oreo features, including Smart Autofill and Picture-in-Picture mode among others.
The update is said to be around 1.4GB in size, so we recommend you to install the update as soon as you receive it. The Android Oreo update includes Samsung Knox 3.1 along with Knox API level 25 and TIMA 3.3.0. Some apps should be manually updated before beginning the update process. These include Samsung Internet, Memo, and Email. Furthermore, the arrival of Samsung Experience 9.0 brings a large number of new emojis.
The update is arriving over-the-counter (OTA), and you can check for availability in your region by visiting Settings > Software updates. The rollout may be in phases so if it doesn’t hit you immediately, it should arrive soon. Furthermore, ensure that you back up your phone data before you begin installing the update. We recommend that you upgrade under a strong data connection and that your smartphone has a battery life of 50 percent or more.
