Samsung Galaxy S7 owners can hope to receive Android 9.0

For many years, Samsung has adhered to a two-year cycle of updates for its flagship smartphones, releasing only two major Android updates for each lineup. According to the new information, the South Korean manufacturer may extend the support period for its top-of-the-line devices.


Samsung unexpectedly registered the 2016 Galaxy S7 smartphone (model SM-G930F) in the Wi-Fi Alliance database. The most curious detail is that Android 9.0 was indicated in the operating system field. Worth recalling, the latest update for this device was Android 8.0 Oreo.


It is too early to make any conclusions, but the owners of the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge can hope to receive an official OS update to the version Android 9.0 Pie. Perhaps Samsung has decided to follow the lead of Google and OnePlus, which release three major Android updates for their devices.
