Android Oreo Being Tested on Samsung Galaxy S8

Among the biggest names when it comes to the world of smartphone technology, Samsung has been around the markets since the early days of Android. The company has dominated the Android markets like no other. Despite their massive popularity and the #1 position - the biggest problem that users have had with Samsung phones is that they do not provide updates on time. Looking forward to change things, Samsung is already testing Android Oreo on the Samsung Galaxy S8.

The Android Oreo OS Update was released late in August and is currently out for Google Pixel and Pixel XL users as an OTA update and for some Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P users who have manually installed it. However a majority of devices are yet to get it. It is indeed a good sign from Samsung that the company has begun the testing on Samsung Galaxy S8.

Reports of Samsung testing the Android Oreo OS on Samsung Galaxy S8 come via Geekbench benchmark listings where the phone is listed running Android Oreo. It is highly likely that Samsung would release the Android Oreo OS Update as for a closed beta shortly, followed by a public beta which would eventually lead to a final, stable release.

Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, as well as the recently released Samsung Galaxy Note 8 are all expected to get the Android Oreo OS update before the end of the year. These are three of the top smartphones from Samsung and the company wants absolutely no delay in rolling out updates for the phones.

Other than the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, Samsung is also expected to roll out the Android Oreo OS Update for the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 Plus. Stay tuned with us for more details on Samsung’s Android Oreo OS updates.
