We’re not sure what’s been happening to Samsung but latest releases of the cookie update for its Galaxy flagships are being put on hold. The latest to be pulled is the Oreo update for the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge that rolled out earlier this month. After months of development, the S7 series received Android Oreo. That was earlier this month for carrier-variants, unlocked version, Exynos-powered models, and those sold in the UK. Unfortunately, the update is getting pulled once again over bootloops.
The Samsung Galaxy S7/S7 edge Oreo update has been much-awaited but a number of issues are being reported. One major problem: bootloops. Because of this, Samsung pulled out the update from Europe. The reboots usually happen after updating to Android 8.0 Oreo. We’re not sure if the issue is wide-spread but stopping it this early will prevent additional problems. In Canada, Samsung already notified the users the Android O upgrade fix is pending.
This isn’t the first time Samsung is halting the rollout of an Android update. The T-Mobile Android Oreo 8.0 update rollout was recently paused after being delayed. Back in February, the Android 8.0 update for Galaxy S8 was also halted.
