Samsung finally released the Android 8.0 Oreo update for the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ earlier today. While it’s only being rolled out to those who participated in the beta program and that too in Europe for now, it appears that at least one fortunate Galaxy S7 Edge owner has received the Oreo in Vietnam. They’ve even made a video about it to show the Galaxy S7 Edge running Android Oreo.
It goes without saying that the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 Edge will eventually receive an official update to Oreo. Both devices are eligible for one more major Android platform update and that’s Oreo.
Samsung will likely have begun development on the Oreo update for these handsets which is probably why this build seems to have leaked out to one user ahead of an official release down the line. The video walks us through some of the new additions that the firmware makes to the Galaxy S7 Edge.
The firmware version G935FXXU2ERB2 hasn’t be released to the public and probably won’t be. It’s possible that this might have been a test build that somehow made its way to this user. This isn’t an isolated incident, though, as it has happened in the past as well with other Samsung flagships.
Samsung is yet to confirm when the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge will get Oreo but one can probably bet that the Galaxy Note 8 will receive it before they do.
