Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge receiving Android 8.0 Oreo update in the UK

Recently in the US, Verizon inadvertently trolled Galaxy S7 and S7 edge owners on its network by releasing an update that supposedly brought Android Oreo to the devices. It turns out the carrier had just attached the wrong changelog, and Oreo wasn't imminent at all. To rub salt into the wounds of those customers, S7 and S7 edge units in the UK are now actually receiving the Oreo update.

Moto Z Play update to Android 8.0 Oreo is starting to roll out in India

Lenovo-owned Motorola isn't always that fast when it comes to updating the OS of its older phones.
