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 29/03/2017. 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.

@Missrippa

If your phone overheat quickly, it could (don't quote me on it) be from a hard problem (i.e battery) so it's worth a try to get it checked if you still have warranty.

Hey @vnandi, I can understand that 2 weeks in a long time to wait, but we'll have to wait and see what the assessment report comes back with. If you're on contract, then you're covered by the manufacturer's warranty.

So according to this, S7 Edge has had Android 7 availble for nearly 3 months now, yet my phone is still not showing any updates available. Is there anything I can do to get this update from you guys?
