Samsung stops Oreo update for the worldwide Galaxy S7

Samsung had started rolling out the Android 8.0 Oreo update with Samsung Experience 9.0 UX to the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge smartphones a few weeks back. On the other hand, the Galaxy S7 Edge 32GB variant is now available for around Rs.35,000 online. So if you haven't received the update yet, then you have to wait for it. Due to that, Samsung has chose to press pause on the Android Oreo rollout, as noted by moderators on Samsung's forums, spotted by Android Police.

"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".

However, it seems that the reboot issues only affect the global Galaxy S7 variants, so if you're situated in the United States, then you are still eligible for the Oreo update.

The official statement released by Samsung says the company is now investigating the random reboot issue internally to ensure that the impact to the affected devices can be minimized and the rollout can resume as soon as possible. While it can not be guaranteed, we will do our best to try to restore your data. In case you can not visit a Support Center, a factory data reset via Recovery Mode has been recommended.

Continue to hold these buttons down as the blue screen with the Android Logo appears and checks for updates. This may take a minute. And if none of these work, you can contact Samsung support to set up a fix, but all of your data stored on your smartphone will be lost.
