LG G6 Android Oreo Update Starts Rolling Out In Korea

Asus has the raised the specs benchmark in the budget segment with the new Zen Fone Max Pro M1

The software update is also only available over-the-air as of now, but should soon be available for download via Samsung SmartSwitch as well.

The company's official South Korea forum has assured community members that the Android Oreo will most likely be released to the Galaxy S7 and the S7 edge around mid-May. This is a phased roll-out, as now it is only being rolled out in the UK. Builds G930FXXU2ERD5 and G935FXXU2ERD5 are rolling out to the S7 and S7 Edge respectively, and it's now only available through an OTA.

For the unfamiliar, Android Oreo brings tons of new features to the operating system, including PiP, autofill, notification channels as well as the Samsung Experience update 9.0.

Where the Galaxy S7 is getting a software update with version G930UUEU4BRD1, the Galaxy S7 Edge is on software version G935UUEU4BRD1.

Do you use a Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 edge as your daily driver?

A noteworthy aspect of the Android Oreo is the Rescue Party feature, which helps the device recover from constant boot loops. Samsung does not list a specific date for when the update will start rolling out, but mid-May means that it should not be more than two weeks away.

We've contacted Samsung to confirm whether the update is rolling out officially and what changes it will bring - we'll update this story when we get confirmation.

However, according to XDA Developers Forum, the new "Samsung Experience 9.0" is landing on the S7 and S7 Edge in the United Kingdom, which contains the new software.
