Is Samsung about to release final Galaxy S8 Android 8.0 Oreo update?

Home / News / Is Samsung about to release final Galaxy S8 Android 8.0 Oreo update?

It looks like Samsung is sending out a final thank you message to everyone who participated in the Galaxy S8 and S8+ Oreo beta program and could be close to releasing the official update. A few users are seeing a new notice about the beta in the Samsung Members app, with the Galaxy Beta team simply saying that it is doing its “best to distribute the official S/W version”. No date or ETA is mentioned this time around, but since the beta team had earlier said it’s aiming for a stable release by January 31st, could the update be on its way?

Galaxy S8 Oreo update: Official rollout imminent?

It would be improper to come to conclusions based on the latest beta notice, but at least users outside the US could see the final update come out before the week is over, if we go by how long it took Samsung to release the Nougat update after the Galaxy S7 beta program ended. Even if they don’t, stateside Galaxy S8 and S8+ owners are likely to go through a longer wait than others as the beta program for North American users ended only four days back.

As mentioned in the notice, folks using the beta will get the final release a day before everyone else. Not a very good gesture for those who acted as guinea pigs for the company, but with the second month of 2018 almost here, we just want to see that notification about Android 8.0 Oreo being available, no conditions applied. Fingers crossed we don’t have to wait too long now.

With this delay, it was more interesting she already sent the Android 8.1 Oreo.

I’ll let the early adopters find out what the bugs are first and then once they’ve found them and Samsung get around to ironing out any remaining bugs in the initial release, I’ll do the “upgrade” and Oreo doesn’t seem to be that much of an upgrade TBQH.

>bugs

that’s the reason samsung doesn’t rush to send out unusable updates only to be pulled later due to bugs like HTShit, shitplus and xiaomeme

its good news, but Samsung doesn’t update S8 and S8+ since November, January is over and still no updates.
I suspect we are getting the updates after the S9 is released.

that’s just not true, last year after Nougat beta program ended at 30th of december, exactly 12 days later official nougat was released to the public, S8 was released in april
i say we’re getting the official Oreo within a week, 2 weeks tops

That will mean it’ll release close to the launch of their new s9/s9+ (Which Dbrand have leaked the images for) and they won’t want anything stealing it’s thunder. So maybe after s9 launch ? Or very soon. If we don’t have it by 14/2 I’d say it’s after s9 launch.
