Samsung Galaxy S7 edge hands-on

Today’s a big day for T-Mobile because it’s pushing out updates to five different phones, including Oreo updates for three of them.

T-Mobile is now updating the Samsung Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 edge, and LG G6 to Android Oreo. These updates bring the usual Oreo goodies, like autofill, notification dots, and picture-in-picture, as well as some other new features. For example, the GS7 and GS7 edge are also getting Samsung features like Dual Messenger and high-contrast keyboard options.

Also of note is that T-Mobile is updating its Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge with support for Universal Profile 1.0. With this feature, users will get new messaging features like support for 100MB file transfers and 100-person chats in their native messaging app. So far, though, only the GS7 and GS7 edge are the only T-Mobile phones to support the RCS Universal Profile, and the only other carrier to support RCS Universal Profile in the U.S. is Sprint. T-Mo has said that it’ll update more devices with the feature over time, but no other details on those plans have been announced.

Getting back to T-Mobile’s software updates, the carrier is also pushing security updates to the Samsung Galaxy S8 Active and Galaxy Note 5. Both of these devices are now being updated with the June 2018 Android security patches.

If you’ve got a Galaxy S8 Active, Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 edge, Galaxy Note 5, or LG G6 on T-Mobile, be sure to keep an eye out for your new update over the coming days!
