Galaxy A8 (2018) Oreo update now available in a few more countries

The Galaxy A8 (2018) and Galaxy A8+ (2018) have been sitting on Android 7.0 Nougat for a tad too long at this point, but Samsung doesn’t seem to be very active in making the Oreo update for these devices as widely available as possible. But since the debut of the Galaxy A8 (2018) Oreo update, it has been released in a few more countries in recent days. For the A8 (2018), the update is available in the Netherlands, Poland, the UAE, and Switzerland. The A8+ (2018) update can be downloaded in India and the UAE.

Galaxy A8 (2018) Oreo update comes to more markets

The A8 (2018) seems to be getting the update in more countries than the A8+, which shouldn’t be surprising as the A8+ doesn’t get monthly security updates, either, unlike the A8. But the rollout should spread to more markets in the coming days for both devices, as these are the last of the eligible A series phones to be getting Android 8.0 Oreo. Of course, it may be a while before every Galaxy A8 (2018) owner is running Oreo, although we hope it’s before Android 9.0 P comes knocking.

If you are using either device in one of the countries mentioned above, you should be able to download the update from the Settings ยป Software update menu on your phone. You can also try downloading the update on a PC via Samsung’s Smart Switch program. Our firmware database also has the Android 8.0 Oreo firmware available (A8 | A8+) in case you don’t see it over the air or through Smart Switch.

Have you updated to Oreo on your A8 or A8+ yet?

I am putting my query here as I’m not able to send it via the forums. I’m planning to get the Galaxy A8 as it has been getting very good reviews. But i’m a bit worried that the Android Pie update may not come soon (unlike Sony’s roadmap). Will it come at the last quarter of this year? Or “early 2019”? My other concern is that although Samsung had made great improvements on it’s UX/UI optimizations, security updates and helpful features consumers are left out of major Android releases and the company is still considered slow with this i.e. whenever… Read more »

Happy With Oreo update (finally!) in A8+ 2018( india). Nice Camera UI. But still missing Software based Live focus (potrait mode) on Rear Camera. I know it doesn’t have Dual Camera but still possible like other company’s phone has provided in their single Camera phone and same is also given in Front Camera of Galaxy A6+ 2018, J7 pro and other latest models. SO it is possible. I hope Samsung will do something for this.
All other Oreo features is good.

The A8 should of rsally come with oreo and not nougat. For a new phone in 2018 to come with nougat is a joke. Also it means your only guaranteed one new official update even though Samsung makes it seem you get two.
