Next up, Samsung Canada vaguely promises Oreo "support" for the Galaxy S7, S7 Edge, A5 and Tab S3 in "Spring/Summer 2018", followed by the Galaxy Xcover 4, Galaxy A8, J3 Prime, Tab A8, Tab Active 2 and Tab A 10.1 "later in 2018". The latest Samsung Galaxy S series has been released earlier at the Mobile World Congress (MWC), which has been named as Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus.
Samsung reportedly shipped around 41 million units of the S8 and S8 Plus while around 48 million units of the S7, launched in 2016, were sold. After that, the Galaxy Note 8 was released too with the Android 7.1 Nougat OS. Released previous year, the smartphone was previously known as the A5, but the company has changed its name so that users associate it with the flagship models. The highlights are the Galaxy S8 and Note 8, with the phones expected to get Oreo on March 19 and 28, respectively.
