Latest Android 8.0 Oreo beta rolling out for the Galaxy S8 in the US

Samsung has released the third iteration of its Android 8.0 Oreo beta firmware in the United States, following its rollout in the United Kingdom last week. Unlike the upgrade that made the rounds over the pond, this latest update bundles a number of miscellaneous bug fixes, according to the lengthy changelog.

There could be a simple explanation for that, though: there’s a chance that the firm didn’t list all of the changes in its first changelog—but that seems unlikely. What’s more probable, however, is that Samsung had to patch a number of additional bugs exclusive to the Snapdragon variant of the Galaxy S8.
