The Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge have received a number of updates and security patches including the Nougat update. Samsung are now developing Android 8.0 Oreo for both devices, although they seem to have slipped up and released it early to at least one S7 Edge user.

In Vietnam, it appears that Samsung have made a mistake and rolled out the update to the Galaxy S7 Edge, however it doesn't make sense that the manufacturer would send the latest update to devices released prior to the S8. The number of users who managed to download it is unclear, and although this is only from one user, a screenshot received at AndroidU shows the details:
The screenshot shows the 1.4 GB update on the users device, along with Samsung Experience UI 9.0.
Although it has been confirmed that the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge will receive the Oreo update at some stage, it's safe to say that the rollout in Vietnam was made in error, due to the fact that it was sent out so early. The S7 Edge didn't even have an open beta program for Oreo, suggesting that the rollout may be a mistake on part of the developers.
