Hi, @serendipityguy​! We don't have a timeline to share, but Samsung is currently working on an Oreo update for the S7E. Once that's complete, we'll test it, then there may be a little kink-ironing-out, and after that's complete the update will be pushed. You can follow along with the process on our Community-2444​ page! 😊 ​

LOL... According to your own support page, T-Mobile isn't even working on an upgrade, for the 7 Edge....  There's an "agreement" to look at it, but nothing more.....

Hey there, @winnt64​! If you visit the Software Updates page and click on the S7E, it should take you here: Samsung Galaxy S7 edge: Manufacturer Development -- this means that the agreement to update is complete and now the manufacturer (in this case, Samsung) is in the process of creating an update for the device. Once they're done, we'll test it, and then if fixes are necessary, the manufacturer will complete those. On the Software Updates page, if you scroll down past the device images, you'll see an outline of the process for an update's completion. You're correct to say that T-Mobile isn't working on the update -- we don't complete them, the manufacturer does -- but it is being worked on by Samsung.

I agree with Marissa (tmo_marissa) and it was not that hard to find that the s7 or s7 edge page that says it is complete, and to wait for release. So many threads for Oreo, it is almost sickening to just go to forums and Oreo this and Oreo that. Samsung is full of them too, and they are just mostly asking the same question on different threads. Why can't people just be patient? I know it is taking a long time but harassing does not make it faster. Be happy your getting updates at all.
