The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ have made their way to a handful of markets across the globe. As Samsung continues to expand the availability of its new flagship smartphone, the company has done a commendable job by releasing kernel sources for the Exynos-powered Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+.

As more and more people get their hands on the new flagship, there will be many who want to customize their devices. Providing developers with kernel sources enables them to start working on custom kernels for the device. Custom kernels will give users significantly more control over their device and countless modification options.

You can visit Open Source Release Center (OSRC) to download the kernel sources for the Exynos-powered Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. This is certainly going to benefit a lot of people as most markets are going to receive the Exynos variant. You should expect custom kernels for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ to start popping up in a couple of weeks.
