Sprint Beings Rolling Out Android Oreo to The Samsung Galaxy S7 Lineup

Following the release of Android Oreo on AT&T and Verizon, Sprint has now begun rolling out the update to the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge on their network.  The updated build is R16NW.G93xPVPU6CRE7 and it comes in at a 1.7GB on the download.  The update has been released by Sprint so you should see it at any point if not already.

Essentially, the update is the same that was pushed out to AT&T and Verizon customers.  It brings the April Android Security Update Patch and all of the goodness that comes with Android Oreo.  It also brings the new Samsung Experience 9 user interface and experience to the 2016 flagship.

At this point, only the unlocked variant of the phone (why?) and T-Mobile variants of the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge remain for getting their update to Oreo.  There is no way to know when T-Mobile will be rolling out the upgrade nor when Samsung will release it for the unlocked variants.

So far the update appears to be rolling out without any issues.  As you may recall, when Verizon released the update a few weeks back, they pulled it twice before apparently being satisfied it was stable and ready for release.  AT&T however has had no issues with it and hopefully it’ll be the same for those of you on Sprint.
