When Verizon Wireless mistakenly published the official Android Oreo changelog for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge, we only it was only a matter of days before the update started rolling out. Even though it’s not rolling out to the giant American carrier, we can at least verify that Oreo is officially available for the global S7 and S7 Edge.
Numerous reports are coming from Redditors who can confirm that the update to Android Oreo is indeed rolling out to the 2016 pair Europe. This comes after Samsung surprisingly rolled out the OS to the 2017 Galaxy A7, Galaxy A5, and Galaxy A3 ahead of the flagships, but that doesn’t matter anymore now that Oreo is here.
Those using the Galaxy S7 are getting software version G930FXXU2ERD5 while those on the S7 Edge are receiving software version G935FXXU2ERD5, both updates clocking in at about 1.3GB. Besides Oreo, the update also brings Samsung Experience 9.0 and the latest Android security patches for the month of April 2018.

This is an OTA update and it will take time before all Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge units get the update. Besides, it’s likely that the update will be rolling out region-wise and since Samsung hasn’t provided a clear roadmap, the best you can do is wait and hope that your region is the next target.
Meanwhile, you might want to keep your finger glued to the “Software update” button in the Settings menu to improve your chances of getting the update ahead of the rest.
