When a new Android Operating System update is announced by Google there are a few steps that take place before it becomes ready for your device. The manufacturer receives the update and customises the software for the device and mobile carriers in each country. Once this is completed they’ll send the update to the carriers for testing.

 

For more info on this process check out our page:

 

Android Device Updates - What's The Process?

 

The below table provides information on the latest Android updates we’ve received for testing and approval as of  07/06/2018. If no information is listed, it means we haven't received the build or any new details from the manufacturer.

 

When a version is marked as completed it means testing has been finished on our end and approved.  Each manufacturer has a process for releasing updates to devices and once we approve the update, it’s sent back to the manufacturer to be released through their standard update processes. Generally, updates are rolled out progressively, for example the manufacturers might make the update available for a small number of users (i.e. 5%) initially; then if no unforeseen problems pop up, it’ll gradually be made available to more and more users over the following weeks.

Again the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge gets ignored...

It's not something that's intentional.

 

We haven't received a new MR from Samsung for the GS7 range.  As soon as we receive the update from the manufacturer, we'll commence testing. 

 

We're given updates on a weekly basis. As soon as we have something, we'll be sure to update the blog. You're waiting on the Oreo update for the GS7?

Yes I'm waiting for the Oreo update as I have heard a bit about it and I am curious.

Samsung did suspend the rollout of 8.0 for the S7 family of devices, but as of mid-May it has resumed. 

 

There was an issue causing the device to unexpectedly reboot. Once we receive an update, we'll let you know Smiley Happy

My S7 is flawless in oreo and got no issues. I don't understand why the telco here still holding the update.

@Edgedancer91, we're currently in the final stage of testing. 

 

The update is due to deploy late June. I've updated the blog with a time-frame.

This is getting beyond the joke. Surely optus have some information regarding the S7 8.0 update? It's rolling out to loads of countries now but Australia gets left behind? No wonder people switch telco's and go with apple.

@savage01, I don't think it's that out of the ordinary for carrier based S7s. Oreo has only just started rolling out in the US:
