The biggest name when it comes to the world of smartphone technology in terms of sales volumes, Samsung has occupied the number one spot for years. The company has managed to maintain a strong lead and it has been due to their superior smartphones. The Samsung Galaxy S8 was Samsung’s 2017 flagship till the Note 8 came along. The company has reportedly already begun to develop the Android Oreo update for Samsung Galaxy S8.
Samsung has been known to be notoriously late when it comes to OS updates. However, this year the company wants to ensure they leave no stones unturned to keep the customers happy. The Android Oreo update for Samsung Galaxy S8 is expected sooner than most people would believe it to be. This is rather absurd because a lot of Samsung devices are yet to get the Android 7.0 Nougat OS update too. However, Samsung knows it’s priorities.
Reports from Sammobile indicate that the firmware version for the Android 8.0 update for the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ could be G955FXXU1BQI1 and G950FXXU1BQI1, respectively. Samsung is expected to start off with their beta testing soon and unlike last year, the delay between beta testing and actual release would be much shorter.
With the Android 8.0, these Samsung flagship devices will become much faster. Expect your Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus to boot faster, to get picture-in-picture mode, autofill and much more. Android Oreo will also bring to the users of Samsung Galaxy S8 60 new emojis to choose from. Notifications and Android Instant apps will also be a part of the Android Oreo update for Samsung Galaxy S8.
For now, there is no word on the exact date as to when Samsung might begin rolling out the beta test. However we expect that might begin some time during late September to Mid October, possibly leading to a final, stable Android Oreo update for Samsung Galaxy S8 sometime around December. Stay tuned with us for more news on the Android Oreo update for Samsung Galaxy S8.
