AT&T Begins Rolling Out Android Oreo to The Samsung Galaxy S7 Active

Good news this morning for those of you who have the Samsung Galaxy S7 Active on the AT&T network.  Your Android Oreo 8.0 update is now starting to roll out.  The update, according to AT&T, is build R16NW.G891AUCU3CRE7 and it is about 1.5GB in size.   The update brings the April Android Security Update and is version 8.0 of Oreo, not the more current 8.1.

Fundamentally, the update is the same that has been rolling out on AT&T, Verizon and Sprint for the normal Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge which brings all the Oreo updates along with the new Samsung Experience 9 user experience.

For those that don’t recall, the Samsung Galaxy S7 Active is a hardened version of the Galaxy S7 with a bigger 4000mAh battery.  It is designed to withstand drops and other rough action over the standard model.

If you have a Galaxy S7 Active, you can go to Settings>Software Update to check for the update.  AT&T appears to have just released this a couple of days ago so it could well be another few days before everyone sees it.
