Samsung Galaxy S8 And S8 Plus Finally Receiving Android 8.0 Oreo Update

Share

Samsung started rolling out the final Android 8.0 beta build for Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ smartphones in India in mid-January.

With the Galaxy S8 lineup, Samsung introduced the DeX Station, an accessory that turns the phone into a computer. Users can go into Settings Software Update Download updates manually to download and install the update. However, while we do know that Samsung is probably preparing the update for these devices, we have no clear release date.

For the past few years, Samsung has released two different versions of its flagship Galaxy S and Galaxy Note smartphones.

Galaxy J devices will likely get an update in February, but it probably won't be Android 8.0 Oreo.

The Tacoma TRD Pro has a 1-inch wider track in both front and rear for added stability. Of course, the four Fox shock absorbers are key to the TRD Pro's performance.

We can assume that the same stable Android 8.0 Oreo update will be rolled out to other regions in a couple of days. However, according to SamMobile, everyone else now running Android 7.x Nougat will start receiving the update starting tomorrow (at least in the German market).

The next step is testing at T-Mobile which could take several weeks while the carrier tacks on its own enhancements and bug fixes. Samsung users are also waiting for other important updates. If it is available, a manual download option will pop up. This further strengthen our believe that the smartphone is indeed the Samsung Galaxy S9 as the Galaxy S9 duo are expected to be the first smartphones with Qualcomm's latest flagship processor.

We'd expect most of the Galaxy S8's Oreo features to make it over to the newer Galaxy J models though we could see Samsung hold some features back due to hardware limitations.
