Galaxy S8 Oreo vs Nougat side-by-side screenshots

The official Oreo update is finally rolling out to the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, two weeks after the beta program came to its long-drawn-out conclusion. The update’s only available to beta testers in Germany at the moment, and while everyone else is waiting for the update to hit their S8 or S8+, we thought we’d put together a few screenshots to show how things differ on Oreo compared to Android 7.0 Nougat.

Changes and improvements are littered throughout Samsung Experience 9.0, the latest version of Samsung’s software, and there are also quite a few new features. We’ve already covered a majority of those features in our What’s New With Android 8.0 Oreo articles, so these screenshots are simply to show how some apps and menus have changed on Oreo. Needless to say, we’ll keep adding more of these as we discover other new stuff.

Well, without further ado, check out the screenshots below. The Oreo screenshot is on the left in each image, while the Nougat screenshot is on the right. If you still haven’t received the Oreo update, don’t forget to take the necessary steps to prepare your S8 or S8+ so that it’s a smooth transition. Already running the official Oreo build on your phone? Let us know how your experience has been by leaving a comment!
