Folks at SamMobile report that alongside the update for unlocked Galaxy S7 users, the Android Oreo update available for Vodafone UK-locked Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge units. For the Galaxy S7, the software firmware version is G930FXXU2ERD5, and for the Edge model, the firmware version is G935FXXU2ERD5. This is a phased roll-out, as now it is only being rolled out in the UK.
It contains improvements to boost battery life by cutting down on needless backdoor application activity, quicker start-up, more fluid navigation, and greater security through the Google Security Patch released in April 2018 and Google Play Protect, that controls malware and suspected activity in apps.
After the update, the smartphones will have all the goodies of Android Oreo with Samsung Experience 9.0. After several beta versions and months of testing, the final public build is now out. That's where it has started rolling out the update over-the-air today so it's likely going to take some time before the update goes live in other markets across the globe. In as much as the next couple of days, you are sure to be on the 1274.28MB-heavy Oreo table too.

After the win, Nadal dived into a pool at the venue along with some of the tournament's ball boys and ball girls. The 63rd-ranked Tsitsipas was trying to become the first Greek to win an ATP Tour title.
The company is also showing some love to those who won't be receiving Android Oreo, among them the Galaxy J7 2015, Galaxy J7 Prime, and Galaxy Tab S2.
Unfortunately for owners outside of the United Kingdom, there is no word on when Android 8.0 Oreo will begin rolling out to other regions.
