Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge: Android Pie OS Update.

A heads up to owners of the Samsung Galaxy S7 & S7 Edge:

I scanned the Internet to see if the Samsung Galaxy S7 & S7 Edge will be receiving the Pie update. From what I found as of today, the answer is no. Smiley Sad

The S7 & S7 Edge have been around for two years, so, unless some weird turn of events takes place, Oreo is the end of the line. The S8 & newer models will be receiving Pie.

You read one persons guess. Only Samsung knows what phones will be updated.

Typically the Galaxy series of phones are updated for two years. If the trend continues, then the S7 & S7E have reached the end of the OS update line.

But, as stated, Samsung will have the official final word.

Most probably, it won't get further updates. If that doesn't get further updates you can wait till Samsung announce some good news for this phone (crossing my fingers).

Cheers!

When I clicked on the website you provided for future updates it said, "An unexpected error has occurred". How long will I continue to get this error message?

Hi RSRJ63. I appreciate you trying to check that site for future updates and apologize for the trouble you ran into. I was able to confirm https://www.verizonwireless.com/support/software-updates/ is up and running, so you should be able to copy and paste it into your browser as tikibar1 mentioned. If you try that way, does the link work? Are other links and web browsing options working well for you? Do you experience the same issue on both Wi-Fi and cellular data?

Thank you

@RSRJ63,

 

I know how important it is to be able to view all the current software updates we have available for all our devices. I apologize you are receiving an error message when you click on the link we provided.

 

Are still still getting the error message after following the suggestion provided by Tikibar1? I checked the link and it is working. Were you clicking on the link from the email notice you received, or did you go to the original post http://spr.ly/6587E6lZt and click on the link there? Have you tried using a different browser? Are you having issues with any other links?
