Samsung started working on the Android 8.0 Oreo update for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ last month. We reported recently that there's a possibility that Samsung might launch the Galaxy S8 Oreo beta program soon. Another report claimed that the beta program will be launched in the United States on October 31.
A new report brings us the names of the countries where Samsung is going to launch the Galaxy S8 Oreo beta program. It doesn't reveal precisely when the beta will go live there, only that those select countries will get it.

The report claims that Samsung is going to launch the Galaxy S8 Oreo beta program in the United Kingdom, North America and South Korea in the first phase. The second phase will see the beta being launched in China, Germany, Spain, France, Poland and India. It's unclear how long the wait will be between the first and second phase.
Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 owners in these markets will be able to join the beta through the Samsung Members app. The app is available from Galaxy Apps and the Google Play Store. They have to register for the Galaxy Beta Program from the Samsung Members app.
Once they have completed the registration process, they can download the Galaxy S8 Oreo beta from the Software update menu in Settings.
Samsung is yet to confirm anything about the Galaxy S8 Oreo beta program. It hasn't shared a roadmap for the update's public release as well. According to recent reports, the Galaxy S8 Oreo update might be released early next year.
