These Galaxy devices will be updated to Android 8.0 Oreo (updated: September 21)

Not many topics keep Android users on their toes as much as big, feature-rich updates. And with the Android 8.0 Oreo update on the horizon, we are once more bombarded with questions. Will the Galaxy S8 get that update? When can I update my Galaxy S7? How about my Galaxy S6? Here we share what we know. Be smart and bookmark, since we’ll be updating this article whenever new information surfaces.

We’ll get right to the question of which device will be updated, but for now, we can not make any predictions regarding a timeline. So, for example, we can say that the Galaxy S8 will, of course, get the Android 8.0 update, but we do not yet know when. If you’re looking for all the latest news about Samsung’s Galaxy and Android Oreo, scroll down past these lists to find all headlines with related news.

These Galaxys will get Android 8.0 Oreo

  • Galaxy S8 – update confirmed, development started, beta test likely
  • Galaxy S8+ – update confirmed, development started, beta test likely

  • Galaxy Tab A (2016 models) – update track record unclear
  • Galaxy J7 Prime (OnNxt) – hasn’t yet received Nougat

These Galaxys will not get Android 8.0

So, you ask, how do we get to these lists? Tracking Samsung’s Android updates over a long period of time, it is clear many series and devices always get two major OS upgrades, before continuing with security updates only. However, as indicated above, this rule is not firmly established for most of the Galaxy J series, nor for several other devices.

Over time, we’ll be updating the information above when we receive new information, or when it surfaces elsewhere. We have not included devices that have already stopped receiving major OS upgrades, like the Galaxy S5 or Galaxy Note 4, even if they still receive new security patches regularly. Other devices missing from this list will be added if and when we have tangible information to report.

One last thing we have to point out, is that we are, of course, not Samsung. This list is by no means based on official information and only enumerates our predictions, not Samsung’s official update policy. Should our information be proven wrong, we will update this article, but we are not responsible for your device’s updates. If you think we missed a device from the last two years, let us know in the comments and we will try to add information about that device to our list.

i’m just laughing seeing how somewhat dumb most of the comments are..
just in case u dont know, sammobile does NOT provide the firmwares. they only provide updates/news about them tho.

Samsung is in charge of their device’s firmwares. Oh and just in case you dont know, Sammobile is not affiliated with Samsung..

Will Samsung include Project Treble in this Oreo update because I think it would be very useful with future updates

Samsung has lots of money to pay developers and S6 is fast! Even iPhone 5 has got 4 updates from iOs 6 to 10 (https://goo.gl/pT948W)

I’ll move to iPhone, It’s not because I want an upgrade or Oreo, it’s not because I can’t upgrade to Oreo (yes I can through XDA), but because they show no loyalty to their customers

I hope that S6 will get even android 7.1 to bring new performance changes, there is not enough ram memory available on 7.0, it’s a pity not to go to android 8.0 because this phone deserves what components it has

S6 Series dont get Oreo? this is silly, S6 Series Hardware its still good enough for android Oreo, if Samsung continues do this, I start to thinking migrate to apple device with IOS (good support for upgrade OS)
