That's right. The S7 launched with Marshmallow.  Then, it got the Nougat and Oreo updates. From Samsung's point of view, that's the 2 android letter updates they usually provide.

 

Even though 8.1 is a maintenance update, Samsung never made a version for the S7. 8.0 was the last major update from June 2018. Only security patches ever since, and now those are done - the last one Samsung released was the March 2020 patch, but AT&T is still offering only the Dec 2019 patch.

 

Whether AT&T decides to push out the March 2020 patch, now that it's 4 months late, is another question.
