Hi,

 

The S7 Oreo Update has been rolling out for about a month now. What would be the ETA for NZ?

 

 

Regards,

Jason

That'll be down to Samsung but will ask our device team to see if they have had any updates.

Cheers

As usual, Samsung are slower than a glacial defrost during an Ice Age with their rollouts.

Samsung has rolled out the update to quite a few places in the last two weeks. Hoping the NZ rollout isn't far away.

 

S7 8.0

Yep. I got the SamMobile updates regarding the roll out. But as usual, New Zealand is often last.

Android O with Samsung Experience 9 is available now via OTA.

 

So far no real issues. Just had to make minor tweaks to Contacts lists - some of my contacts became unlinked, requiring a little finessing.

 

A few apps that should have been done before the update were available after the update was done; strangely, not before.

 

G935FXXU2EREM / G935FVNZ2ERE8 / G935FXXU2ERD6

Remember, your device will get hot during this update. If concerned and once the restart update had been completed, you may wish to turn off your device for 10 - 15 minutes to cool down. Won't that be a nice break?

An interesting article on the S7/S7 Edge running Android O over on Android Central for those interested

This is an American article, so there may be some differences from what we have available. But fundementally, its the same.
