Verizon rolling out Android Oreo for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge
A month ago Verizon failed to deliver Android Oreo update to Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge owners, they simply posted the wrong changelog, breaking the owner’s hearts. Anyhow, Verizon posted in its support pages for the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, we hope it will be real this time.
Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus already received Android Oreo update, Considering that the Galaxy S8 and S8+ were among the last Android OEM flagships to get the update. Regarding the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, however, the devices began receiving the latest version of Android only last month, starting with that the United Kingdom and then Samsung’s home country of South Korea.
While the construct numbers are now Oreo build numbers this time (R16NW.G930VVRU4CRE5 for its S7 and R16NW.G935VVRU4CRE5 for the S7 Edge), both still come with the currently two-months-old April 2018 security patch. Standard Oreo attributes just like you’ll have access to native autofill to aid with your passwords, background app limits that should help with device performance, picture-in-picture mode for apps like YouTube, along with notification dots in your icons to allow you to know when notifications are available. Samsung has also included a new double messenger feature that lets you log in to 2 accounts for the same chat app, app pairs for launching two apps at the same time, a new UI, and an update to SmartThings app.Go to Settings > System updates to check the update.
