These Galaxy devices will be updated to Android 8.0 Oreo (updated: January 31)

Home / News / These Galaxy devices will be updated to Android 8.0 Oreo (updated: January 31)

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 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

These Galaxys may or may not get Android 8.0

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 am happy with the A530F but i can not understand why have Samsung make the descicion to launch this top phone with 7.1.1 without updatesupport in Belgium . Most countries have january patch but here and in Netherlands is it still december. On the website they promises every month security patch and two years guaranteed updates but it looks that’s not happen.

Oreo in C7 pro is not the first major OS upgrade, it must be second major upgrade. Am i right?

Tab E Oreo was confirmed for T377x models by T-Mobile. Has same chipset than Tab A 2015. Has already received 2 major upgrades. Tab A 2015 could thus maybe get Oreo too.

J3 2016 with Exynos 3475 got Nougat from Marshmallow. Could maybe get Oreo since this is only the North American model

As was the case with Nougat, they (Samsung) chose to wait for the new flagship to launch before a major update launched for the previous flagship – wasn’t the S7’s Nougat update held up until the S8 launched? (Now it’s our turn to trail a new handset in the queue; I observed from the sidelines as I did not purchase an S7 on Launch Day; however, I got an S7 since the S8 launch. The S7 can, in fact, run the same apps as the S8 – the Project L semistock ROM for the S7 is, in fact, based on… Read more »

I’d like to ask you about when could the A7 2017 (and A5/A3) get the oreo update, or when the beta test will start, I know you aren’t the responsible but the OS was released some like 7 months ago and Samsung have not even started the beta test despite the device is one year old only.
Thanks

The J7 2017 (J730F) has not received any updates in the summer when it gets updated on android 8.0?

Giorgie Jones

I have 2 questions,
1) I own a J5 2017, and doesn’t have Always On Display, will this feature be available in 8.0?
2) will Bixby voice finally be ported to devices getting 8.0?
