Samsung notified Galaxy S8 Oreo beta members in India three weeks ago that the beta program is going to end on January 15. It sent out another notice the following week to beta members in the United Kingdom informing them that the beta is going to end on January 17. Samsung has now confirmed when the Android 8.0 Oreo beta for the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ is going to end in the United States.

Galaxy S8 Oreo beta ending soon in the US

The company has posted a notice in its Samsung Members app confirming that the Galaxy S8 Oreo beta ends in the United States on January 26, that’s today. Samsung released the 7th and final Oreo beta firmware for the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ last week.

Once the beta ends, Samsung will no longer release any beta firmware and will not provide a response to feedback from members of the program. However, the community will remain open for communication between beta users.

Samsung promised in the beta notice it posted in the app two weeks ago that it will do its “best to distribute the official S/W version in January as soon as possible.” Samsung says in the latest notice that “we look forward to releasing the official software update as soon as we can.”

It’s still unclear when Samsung intends to release Android 8.0 for the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ to the public. It shouldn’t be too long now as once the beta program ends, the next release is always the stable, public version.
