A couple of days ago we told you that Samsung had paralyzed the Android 8.0 Oreo update for the Galaxy S7. This news did not like the users, since the story was repeated in exactly the same way as in the Galaxy S8. In this case it even seems a bit further, since Samsung released a statement indicating that you took the device to an official store to solve the problems. If you have not updated it seems that this will not be necessary, since Samsung has returned to launch the OTA with all the problems solved , or so we want to think.
In the case of Samsung Galaxy S8 the company took more than a week to re-launch the update with the problems solved, something that has not happened in this case. It seems that Samsung has detected the bug much faster and is already out of the new update. Of course, the new OTA follows the course that was the previous one, so you’ll have to wait longer if you’re in Latin America, for example.
Be careful with the compilation that you update your Galaxy S7
Initially the previous update should no longer appear on any smartphone. It was paralyzed and eradicated from terminals around the world, except for those who had already updated. Now Samsung has re-launched the official OTA, but before updating your device you should make sure that the compilation number is correct and not another. For the Galaxy S7 the correct update is this: G930FXXU2ERE8. On the other hand if you have a Galaxy S7 Edge, you should check this number: G935FXXU2ERE8.
The update will first reach all those who had already upgraded to Android 8.0 Oreo with the failed version, so that all problems are solved and can use your smartphone correctly. Afterwards it will end up arriving in the different countries of Europe and Latin America, although there are no confirmed dates yet. There are some markets in America that are receiving OTA, so you should be very attentive.
Do I update with this new OTA?
Undoubtedly, it is the question you are asking yourself right now. At first the new update should be in perfect condition, but given the bad times that is happening the Korean company with Android 8.0 Oreo, we recommend that you wait a few days until the market begins to try this update. With the Galaxy S8 we told you exactly the same thing and finally the second update worked as it should.
If you have a Galaxy S7 and you do not run too fast to upgrade to Android 8.0 Oreo, wait until this OTA is well established in the market to update. You will save yourself possible headaches or having to lose valuable data from your smartphone.
