It has been a few weeks since the Android 8.0 Oreo beta was released for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ in markets like the United States and the United Kingdom. We had heard that there would be a phase two as well which would see the beta being expanded to markets like India, China, Spain, France, Germany and Poland.

Samsung hasn’t announced phase two of the beta program officially but the firmware has been rolled out in India earlier today. We’ve already received it on our devices in India. We can now also report that the Android 8.0 Oreo beta for the Galaxy S8 is being rolled out in Germany and Poland as well.

With the Android 8.0 Oreo beta now being rolled out in Germany and Poland, it may only be a matter of time before it’s released in other markets that are supposed to receive it in phase two. Samsung is yet to officially confirm the second phase of the beta, though.

Samsung hasn’t confirmed when the Android 8.0 Oreo update will be publicly released. Reports suggest that it may either be out in late January or early February.

The company hands out spots on the beta program on a first-come-first-served basis. Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ owners in Germany and Poland can register for the beta from the Samsung Members app. They will find the Register for Galaxy Beta Program option in the Notices section accessible via the Home tab.

Once the registration process is complete, they can download the beta firmware by tapping on Download updates manually in the Settings » Software update menu. The Android 8.0 Oreo beta for Galaxy S8 is a 1.4GB download.

Update: Samsung is now rolling out the beta in France as well.
