You would expect that Samsung will offer customers in its nation of software support than anywhere else in the world, but that is not how the company does it. Samsung prefers turning towards transforming consumers in some other country into guinea pigs to test major new software update before pushing them out in South Korea and different other markets. For the Galaxy S7 Oreo update, Samsung chose the United Kingdom as the test bed. The update was temporarily halted before being made available again before after and it would seem that Samsung is currently confident there will be no more surprises, as Oreo is rolling out for the Galaxy S7 in its backyard.
Samsung Galaxy S7 Oreo roll out in South Korea
As is usually the case, the update has been released for all the major carriers in South Korea. The build number is KLU1ERE8 and it includes the April 2018 security fix. The update should be able for download over the air through the Settings » Software refresh menu, and we also have the firmware accessible on SamMobile database (it might set aside some time for the firmware to be transferred for every bearer). It should not be some time before the update is released for the Galaxy S7 edge too. Obviously, we have our fingers crossed that Samsung will soon be releasing the Galaxy S7 Oreo update in different markets, however, it’s best not to get your expectations up until the company really starts doing that.
