[Updated] New Android 8.0 Oreo beta rolling out to the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+

Home / News / [Updated] New Android 8.0 Oreo beta rolling out to the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+

Samsung has just started rolling out a new Android 8.0 Oreo beta firmware for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. Samsung is calling the latest release the “2nd beta” on our Indian unit of the S8+ and we don’t see the same update on our European variants, so it’s possible the new beta isn’t going to be released for beta testers from the first phase, at least not immediately. The software version of the latest beta is ZQLE, and like the last beta, this one also seems to be all about bug fixes. Not surprising, as all the new features have no doubt been implemented already and Samsung is likely to focus on ironing out any errors and bugs as we inch closer to the final release of Oreo for the Galaxy S8.

New Galaxy S8 and S8+ Android 8.0 Oreo beta rolling out

To see if the update is available on your Galaxy S8 (if you’re enrolled in the beta program, of course), go into the phone’s settings, tap Software update, then tap the Download updates manually option. It’s a 613 MB update, so make sure you’re using a Wi-Fi connection before you begin the download. As always, since this is a beta release, be sure to backup important data before updating. We’ll be digging into the new beta to see if anything has changed or improved; in the meantime, you can check our What’s New With Android 8.0 Oreo series to see all the major features that the latest version of Android brings to the Galaxy S8 and S8+.

Have you received the latest beta on your Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+?

Update: The same beta is now rolling out in other regions where the beta program is available, making it officially the fifth Oreo beta.

There is no Oreo beta for S7. Maybe in three or four months.

If your talking about the edge lighting not following curves of screen when playing music through samsung music app, go to galaxy app and download “samsung music o os”. Now it should work like normal.

Your headline title is a bit misleading. You didn’t state that it’s the beta update.
