Samsung stops Android 8.0 Oreo rollout for the international Galaxy S7

Samsung stops Android 8.0 Oreo rollout for the international Galaxy S7
Everyone was happy that Samsung has finally kicked off the rollout of Android 8.0 Oreo for Galaxy S7 and S7 edge. Unfortunately, it appears that it didn't last too long. So, if you did not receive the update yet, chances are you won't get it anytime soon.

Apparently, the South Korean company has decided to put the Android Oreo rollout on hold until it fixes some of the issues that many Galaxy S7 owners reported soon after the update went live. An official statement has already been issued by Samsung, which confirms the deployment of the update has been put on hold.

However, it appears that the reboot issues only affect the international Galaxy S7 variants, so if you're located in the United States, theoretically, you should still be eligible for the Oreo update.


In case you already updated to Android 8.0 Oreo and your Galaxy S7 is affected by the reboot issues mentioned by Samsung, then you should visit a local Support Centre or simply do a factory data reset using the Recovery Mode.
