Samsung to release the Android 8.0 Oreo update in Turkey in early 2018

Samsung’s Turkish subsidiary is aiming to start rolling out the much-anticipated Android 8.0 Oreo update in Turkey at the beginning of 2018, according to a post published on Guncelmiyiz, the firm’s local update portal.

While we don’t know exactly what smartphones—and tablets—will receive the upgrade in the region, it’s safe to assume that the Galaxy Note 8 and Galaxy S8 will be among the first, closely followed by the Galaxy S7.

As this is Samsung we’re talking about, we wouldn’t recommend fixating on the early 2018 release date, but nevertheless, having confirmation it’s actively developing the firmware for use on its devices is certainly reassuring.

For those unaware, Android 8.0 Oreo bundles a number of long-awaited features, including support for Program-in-Picture (PiP), notification channels, adaptive icons and circular emoji, as well as a number of bug fixes.

The S8 will get it first. As has been the case for many years with the S line and then the Note8. The S7 will follow after the Note8.

I still do not understand why it takes Samsung or any company for that matter so long to get these things out. The beta runs for months and to me it seems that they do not actually even bother to start looking at it until the final release. There is really NO excuse for not being on the ball with the releases and get them out within weeks of the official release.

Because Sony doesn’t bring lots of new features when they update to a newer Android. You get the new updated Camera app as well as the features that come with Oreo. Samsung on the other hand, they will add features with Oreo more than what Oreo brings, you will probably see features that will come with Android P. (Just like always)

But it’s easier for Sony as they only sold eleven phones this year. Lol.
