Hi,

is it possible to upgrade Android on my Samsung Galaxy S7 from  version 8.0.0 to 9 or higher?
reason is that some apps which i use have been upgraded and no longer run on version 8.0.0.

i don’t hope that my Galaxy S7 must be thrown in the pile of electronics scrap.

best regards

Per Jensen

Hi @Volvos60  Unfortunately  Android 8 was the last operating system Update for the Galaxy S7.

However there  was an important update released  in August 22 G93xFXXU8EVG3  to fix GPS issues, do you have this?   More details here https://www.sammobile.com/news/samsung-important-update-discontinued-galaxy-s7-and-s8/   https://www.sammobile.com/news/samsung-galaxy-s7-stops-update-four-years-after-launch/ 

 However due to the incompatibility with some apps and the fact you will not receive the latest security updates,  you may wish to consider purchasing a  more modern device at some point.

I do not work for Samsung or make Samsung Products but provide independent advice and valuable contributions.
