If you’re still using a Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge on Verizon, you might have noticed that you were notified about an update to Android 8.0 Oreo this weekend. You might have also noticed that, despite that notification and the changelog with it, you didn’t actually get the Oreo update. What happened?
Well, it turns out that this monthly security patch for April accidentally had an overzealous changelog that listed the entire update as being a massive upgrade. The build number for this update referenced Nougat, not Oreo, although the update page does show some screenshots of the newer version running on the Galaxy S7.
So if you installed the update, you did get your monthly security patch, and you can pretty much guarantee that progress is being made on Android 8.0 for your Galaxy S7. Verizon knows it was a mistake, but unfortunately, that’s all you’re going to get right now.
Maybe next month?
