The Samsung Galaxy S7 finally receives Android Oreo
The rollout for the Galaxy S7 has been far from a smooth affair so far. Various models for different regions have received updates around the world, but it’s been a tad haphazard. Users in the US can rest easy now, though, as the update was sent out a few days ago.
Samsung’s update policy isn’t ideal, and only few would argue with that. The company has a penchant for sending out OS updates months after the competition—the Note 8 only just received Oreo in April, for example. Monthly updates are usually a more straightforward affair, however, although owners of unlocked models may have differing opinions.
The update brings a number of features including Picture-in Picture mode, Notification Dots, and Password Autofill. All the things we've seen on stock Oreo, basically. The update to Oreo is also the final OS update the S7 will receive, although it will still get security updates till February 2019 when it reaches the end of its support life.
