Samsung is not known to be the quickest when it comes to pushing out the latest Android updates, but surprisingly, for limited Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge users, Samsung did roll out Android Oreo earlier this month, and then nearly immediately put the rollout on hold.
The official statement released by Samsung says the company is now investigating the random reboot issue internally to ensure that the impact to the affected devices can be minimized and the rollout can resume as soon as possible. The latest to be pulled is the Oreo update for the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge that rolled out earlier this month.
"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".
However, it seems that the reboot issues only affect the worldwide Galaxy S7 variants, so if you're situated in the United States, then you are still eligible for the Oreo update. However, the update rollout has reportedly been paused now, as some users have reported random reboots after installing the Oreo update. The issue can only be resolved by running a factory data reset so you will need to back up your data through other ways before running a data reset. However, be warned that performing a factory data reset in recovery mode will erase all your data stored on the phone. Along with it come all the goodies you expect from Oreo such as system-level PIP support, Autofill API, notification snooze and channels, and more.
