Samsung Galaxy S8 and Android 8.0 Oreo Update

According to the latest reports, Samsung is now working hard on a custom variety of Android 8.0 Oreo for the company’s Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus phones. Those are the company’s best-selling smartphones.

Owners of Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus can get the update sooner or later.

Android Oreo

The company is allegedly working very hard on the custom version of Android 8.0. Of course, it is for the company’s range of flagship phones.

Oreo, the current version of the mobile OS was launched last month by Google. The latest mobile operating system contains several minor improvements and tweaks to the tablet and smartphone OS.

The 8th huge software iteration features dots on application icons. It also includes image-to-image video playback. Also, it includes auto-fill to securely and quickly enter passwords and other personal data in the form of websites.

To help seek more usage for every charge, the latest Android version would also limit background applications from wearing the battery.

Google has renovated fully the design of the emoji. They ditched the blobs that are Flubber-like and replaced it with a round design. It is much closer to the emojis seen on the iPhone.

Unluckily, at the moment, the latest Android version is available only for select several handsets. Nexus Hardware and Google Pixel could run the Android 8.0 Oreo. However, that is about it.

OnePlus is rumored to be running ahead with the version of Oreo. It is also rumored that it is planning to push-out a software public beta at the end of September 2017.

Beta Testing

When it comes to leaks of Samsung, SamMobile has a tough track record. According to them, the company might start a beta-testing program for early adopters soon. It is just the same as what the company did for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge.

According to SamMobile, the upgrade for Android 8.0 Oreo for Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus would be called G955FXXU1BQI1 and G950FXXU1BQI1 respectively.

In early November of 2016, the company released a beta version of the Android 7.0 Nougat update. It was 2 months after Google released the Android Nougat.

The last stable upgrade was available to the owners of Galaxy S7 to download in January of 2017. Hopefully, the company would be able to get the latest version of Android released a bit faster this year.
