Samsung resumes rollout of Android 8.0 Oreo update for Galaxy S7 and S7 edge
Samsung kicked off the rollout of Android 8.0 Oreo update for the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge not many weeks ago, but a few days ago the South Korean company announced it has put deployment of the update on hold due to some issues.

Apparently, a number of Galaxy S7/S7 edge devices (international version) have rebooted unexpectedly soon after people updated them to Android 8.0 Oreo. Well, it looks like after investigating the issue, Samsung managed to find the cause and even patch it.

Earlier today, Samsung confirmed it has resumed the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge Oreo update rollout, so if you haven't received it yet, then you should be looking for the new firmware versions G930FXXU2ERE8 and G935FXXU2ERE8, which will bring your phones to the latest version of Android OS.

Aside from Android 8.0 Oreo and Samsung Experience 9.0, you'll also get the April security patch inside the update. If you're among the people who had rebooting issues after updating to Oreo, a fix should be available for download.
