No it just gives us s7 edge users kind of a time frame before or if we ever get the update... not holding my breath but if something doesn't happen soon i am going to torture test the phone.. bet will be if it survives the auto rundown .... 4x4 and mini-van get to take turns at it.... then the tiger torch gets to have it's way with it....sounds kind of harsh to destroy a flagship phone but mine is a piece of s**t and i will not defend the phone anymore...

The S7 update is rumored to be a couple months behind the S8 release. Hopefully soon.

Not sure if it will blend.... don't want to destroy a blender for the sake of a POS phone... but i know it WILL melt when i decide to engage it with the tiger torch.... give a new meaning of phone explosions.... but to be fair the phone is a great texting, and picture taker but for calls it just plain sucks i think i may have gotten a defective phone but being out of replacement time frame i am stuck with it so i do own it and yes when i find a replacement for it i will systematically dissect it and put it in a melting pot

@gchiu not yet! As soon as the update is available you'll get notified on your handset.

Any reason as to why? Essential released 8.1 nearly a month and a half ago citing the reason 8.0 was never released was due to stability issue. I would suspect that means things are okay. How come there is exactly zero update? Is it because Sprint and TELUS had exclusive rights to these phones in their respective markets? OTA on the open market has been fine for an extended period now. Don't really want to resort to side-loading but if it means getting on the latest (basically already outdated) software then so be it.

@TanBurrito I have noticed that people on Telus/Koodo have resorted to getting a Rogers SIM to get various updates. From my experience, Telus has lagged behind other major carriers since I can remember, and I've been on Telus since the days of the Motorola brick phone. The comment section of the link below is interesting.

@Nicole-Natassha Hi Natasha, what about the Oreo update for the V30. It's been happening across the United States on multiple carriers. Looking forward to your reply.

If you want updates even CLOSE to on time DO NOT keep or get a Samsung. They are THE WORST phone for updates. THE WORST. 6 freaking months?! The new Android beta is out before I even have last year's Oreo. Its pathetic. I loved Samsung phones thinking it wouldn't bother me much but it is too infuriating. Next phone will not be a Samsung unless they figure this garbage out. Stupid TouchWiz.

At least they receive monthly patches. LG is worse imo. The V20 hasn't gotten any update in almost a year. A friend of mine has a G6 and he had to flash different regions for the latest patches.

According to Rogers upgrade schedule, it will be on April 5th for them. Let's hope it will be the same for Telus.
