Galaxy S8 finally gets a bite of Android Oreo

Ismael LynchFeb 09, 2018

With the update making its way to the S8 series, it is quite possible that the Galaxy S9 will already feature it.

The Galaxy S8 Android Oreo update is now limited, but we expect the roll out to expand to other models in regions around the world in the near future. As always, you can check for updates through the Settings app on your phone. With Samsung launching the Ore beta program in India, we're expecting that the update rollout will begin in the next three to four days or a maximum in next week. Hopefully with this news, however, it won't be long.

The reports that seem to indicate which Samsung devices will receive the update have appeared on fansites like GalaxyClub and SamMobile. Although Google officially unveiled Oreo in August 2017, it has taken some time for the OS to come to non-Google Pixel phones.

If you are running the Beta version of Android Oreo operating system on your Galaxy S8 device, you would be able to download the update easily with smaller size. So nearly 99 percent of Androids are missing out on new features such as picture-in-picture, autofill and battery management upgrades. Users will find the new Android 8.0 Oreo features, plus changes specific to Samsung's own experience, including new Bixby features, high-contrast keyboards, Automations, dual messaging support, and more.
