Samsung resumes Android Oreo update for Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge
Samsung has restored roll out of Android 8.0 Oreo update for Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. The update has been resumed after the company discontinued it shortly a couple of days ago when some users reported unexpected reboots after updating their devices.
Samsung first started rolling out Android Oreo to the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 Edge in international regions earlier this month, but had to halt the update due to a random reboot bug that was plaguing some users. As pointed out by SamMobile, that bug has now been fixed and the company has resumed its rollout of the update.
Samsung released a statement in response to that report;
“Following a limited number of cases where Galaxy S7 devices have rebooted unexpectedly with the Android 8.0 Oreo, we have temporarily stopped the rollout of the update. We are investigating the issue internally to ensure that the impact to the affected devices is minimized and the rollout of the update can resume as quickly as possible.”
This is not the first time Samsung has to halt its Oreo update as nearly the same thing happened with the Oreo update for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. Those phones also suffered from random reboots following the Oreo update. Samsung, however, quickly patched that up and resumed the rollout just a few days later, just like what’s happening with the S7.
As far as Android Oreo updates of other Samsung devices are concerned, the company is almost done with its Galaxy A series of 2017 and now all eyes are on Galaxy J series.
