Samsung has restored roll out of Android 8.0 Oreo update for Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. The update has been resumed after the company discontinued it shortly a couple of days ago when some users reported unexpected reboots after updating their devices.

Though it was already late from the announced schedule, the South Korean tech giant Samsung started pushing Android 8.0 Oreo update for all Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge devices worldwide earlier this month. According to a report by SamMobile, Samsung had to stop that update after some users reported a random reboot bug that made their devices shut down and start all over again frequently. As of now, the news media outlet notes that this bug has been fixed and the company has again resumed its rollout of the Oreo update for S7/S7 Edge.

Samsung released a statement in response to the report at that time;

“Following a limited number of cases where Galaxy S7 devices have rebooted unexpectedly with the Android 8.0 Oreo, we have temporarily stopped the rollout of the update. We are investigating the issue internally to ensure that the impact to the affected devices is minimized and the rollout of the update can resume as quickly as possible.”

This is not the first time Samsung has to halt its Oreo update as nearly the same thing happened with the Oreo update for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. As we previously reported that Galaxy S8 variants also suffered random reboots after an Android 8.0 Oreo update was installed in them. However, at that time company was quick enough to resolve that issue and resumed the rollout of Oreo to S8 variants after a couple of days of bug reports.

As far as Android Oreo updates of other Samsung devices are concerned, the company is almost done with its Galaxy A series of 2017 and now all eyes are on Galaxy J series.
