    Back when we were waiting for the Nougat update for the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, Samsung had revised both devices' user manuals for Nougat a month before the official update started rolling out. We're not sure when the Oreo manual for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ was uploaded, but the manuals are now available for download from Samsung Brazil's website.

    Final Galaxy S8 Oreo update on its way?

    Samsung has said it will try to release the stable build of Oreo for beta testers by the end of January, but it remains to be seen if the company will be able to actually do so. In any case, with the manuals now available online, it's only a matter of time before we're treated to Android 8.0 Oreo on Samsung's 2017 Galaxy S flagship.

    We'll let you know when the update starts rolling out. If you're interested in taking a look at the manuals, hit the source links. Running the Oreo beta on your Galaxy S8 or S8+?
