Second Galaxy S8 Android Pie beta update released

Samsung has released a new Android Pie beta update for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ today. A similar update was rolled out to the Galaxy Note 8 yesterday, and the S8 and S8+ are getting bumped to software versions G950FXXU4ZSAC and G955FXXU4ZSAC respectively.

The changelog appears to be the same as the Note 8 update. The update fixes bugs with the camera, detection and storage of files on the external storage, and lock screen security, among others. The update also comes with an issue that remains unfixed: the People Edge panel in the Edge screen can cause the device to reboot, and Samsung says that a temporary solution for this is to check the People Edge panel “immediately when a missed call occurs” if you don’t wish to outright disable the People Edge functionality.

Samsung is currently hoping to release the stable Android Pie update for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8 in February, so there may not be many beta updates after this one. On the Galaxy S8 or S8+ Pie beta? Download the latest update by going into the phone settings, tapping Software update and selecting the Download and install option. If you haven’t already, do check out all the new features that Pie brings to Galaxy smartphones.

Yes you can. I accidentally “upgraded” my S8 from Oreo to Pie late last Saturday night when I was tired and not thinking clearly – I thought it was just a routine security fix. It took a long time to complete and imagine my horror when it rebooted – Pie is awful. Spent most of Sunday trying to get the look & feel to be the same as Oreo but gave up in the end so installed Odin and Samsung SmartSwitch on a laptop, backed up the phone, joined Sam Mobile, downloaded the last Android 8.0.0. Oreo and reflashed the… Read more »

One UI is not so good. Front cam selfie on S8 has worst result now. Oreo was much better and smooth.

It does make sense , you dont know what’s going on in the background, for sample users get beta but on samsung offices development fix this issues in country that’s no beta testing , so it means it can come faster and the. Beta testers help to to rush the update
