T-Mobile Galaxy S7 and S7 edge getting Android 8.0 Oreo update, Note 5 receiving security update


Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge owners, how would you like to enjoy an Oreo treat this weekend?

T-Mobile is now updating its Galaxy S7 and S7 edge to Android 8.0 Oreo. The Galaxy S7 update is 1726.33MB and is version G930TUVU4CRF1, while the Galaxy S7 edge update is 1746.01MB and is version G935TUVU4CRF1.

The update to Android 8.0 Oreo brings with it several new features, including autofill for faster sign-in, notification dots to help you quickly see new alerts in an app, and picture-in-picture so that you can watch video in one app while performing tasks in another app. Also included is the Samsung Experience 9.0 which adds its own improvements, like Dual Messenger so that you can use two accounts on the same chat app and high-contrast keyboard options.


T-Mobile also says that these updates include stability improvements, bug fixes, performance improvements, and support for Universal Profile 1.0 Compatibility. The Android security patch level post-update is April 1, 2018.

These updates are now going out over the air, so if you’ve got a Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 edge, keep an eye out for your update over the coming days. You can also check manually by going into Settings > Software update > Download updates manually.

In addition to pushing updates to the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, T-Mobile is updating its Galaxy Note 5. T-Mo says that this update includes the June security patches.

This Note 5 update is 20.76MB and is version N920TUVS5ERF2. It’s now going out over the air but is on a daily limit, so if you check for it and it’s not available, you’ll have to check again the next day or after July 1st when the limit is lifted.

Thanks, Dong, Garrett, Luis, and David!
