How to download Galaxy S8 Android 8.0 Oreo beta

Samsung officially announced the launch of the Galaxy S8 Android 8.0 Oreo beta earlier today. It didn’t come as a surprise as there have been plenty of leaks already that reveal the changes this firmware brings. I’m sure many of you are curious about how you can download the Galaxy S8 Android 8.0 beta on your device.

Bear in mind that Samsung is only offering the beta firmware for the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+. It’s unlikely to be offered for the Galaxy Note 8. Samsung has only launched the beta program in a handful of countries so you’re out of luck if you’re based somewhere else.

How To Download Galaxy S8 Android 8.0 Oreo Beta

Samsung has launched the beta program for Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ owners in South Korea, the United States and the United Kingdom today. There will be additional rounds of registration so don’t lose hope if the spots fill up today.

Users in the US must have the Sprint or T-Mobile-locked version of the device or the factory unlocked version. The beta is available for the unlocked version of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ in the UK.

A recent report has suggested that the beta will be expanded to Germany, Spain, France, Poland, China and India in the second phase. Samsung hasn’t confirmed this yet so it’s not known how long the wait between the two phases will be.

If you’re based in the markets where the beta has been launched, ensure that you have an active Samsung Account. Registrations for the beta will be live in the Samsung Members or Samsung+ app, depending on the user’s country of residence.

Users have to launch the app and tap on the “Register Galaxy Beta Program” option. Those who don’t have an active Samsung account will be prompted to create an account. The registration would then be complete.

Once the registration process has been completed, users can check for the Galaxy S8 Android 8.0 Oreo beta from the Software update menu in Settings.

The spots will likely be limited so don’t waste any time in registering if you really want to check out the beta. Samsung is yet to confirm when it’s going to release the Galaxy S8 Android 8.0 Oreo update to the public.
