Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017) gets Android 8.0 Oreo update

Samsung has released yet another update for the Galaxy A7 (2017) devices. The company has rolled out the update for the eligible devices in Vietnam. The update is first hitting those devices in Vietnam and soon to start in other countries. But Samsung hasn’t yet announced the availability of the update and we don’t have a clear official changelog about the device.

The update is now available in Vietnam. The smartphone originally launched last year with Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system. Now the devices get a promised upgrade to the latest stable Oreo build. Samsung has already released the same update for Galaxy A5 (2017) smartphones last week. Now it is time for Galaxy A7 (2017). The company has already provided the Nougat update for both of the models last year. The upgrade for the A5 (2017) started first in Russia and for the A7 (2017) in Vietnam.

The update weighs around 1.3GB and it is now available for all eligible devices. The update brings Samsung Experience 9.0 that enhances the proprietary user interface and includes an improved keyboard. The keyboard is expected to offer new emoji characters, GIFs, and stickers. The update also comes bundled with the April Android security patch that addresses system-level vulnerabilities, ranging from high to critical, through two different patch levels.
