Android 8.0 Oreo for the Galaxy A8/A8+ (2018) is around the corner

Samsung started updating its devices to the Android 8.0 Oreo in February, beginning with the Galaxy S8 and S8+. Since then, the company has pushed out the Oreo update to the Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy S7/S7 Edge, Galaxy A7 (2017), Galaxy A5 (2017), etc. However, the newer Galaxy A8 and A8+ which were launched earlier this year haven’t received the Android Oreo update so far.

Galaxy A8/A8+ (2018) with Oreo receive WiFi certification

It looks the situation is all set to change soon as Samsung is gearing up to roll out the Android Oreo update to the Galaxy A8 and A8+. The company has received WiFi certification for these devices with Android 8.0 onboard, hinting that the rollout is around the corner. Certification is one of the few final steps before the release of a new update, so this is a good indication that these handsets will get Oreo sooner rather than later.

Samsung is yet to reveal a roadmap for releasing the said update for the 2018 Galaxy A8 and A8+. It should only be a matter of time now, though, as the company will be updating other mid-range handsets in the coming months and it would almost certainly update the newer and pricier Galaxy A8/A8+ to Oreo before moving further down its smartphone lineup.

So sad that there is just no love for S7 users. It’s really sad to say this because S8 users will also suffer the same fate for Andriod P next year as S7 users did this year for Oreo, then the S9 users will follow next 2 years for Andriod Q… Honestly the neglet is getting worse…Such a let down…Happy for A8 users though;-)
