Samsung Galaxy S8, S8+ Owners Rejoice! Android 8 Oreo Rollout Begins
Earlier, we reported that Samsung accidentally rolled out Android 8 Oreo update for the Galaxy S7 Edge. While that appeared to be a mistake, this news is official and a good one. Android 8 Oreo update for the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ has started rolling out in Germany. Samsung had promised that Beta testers would get the Android 8 Oreo 24 hours before everyone else and the company has delivered.
The update will soon make its way out of Germany however, the exact timeline has not been shared by the company. long with Android 8 Oreo, the update also brings Samsung Experience 9.0 to the fore. Samsung Experience 9.0 has new features like a new keyboard, colour lens for display, improvements to Bixby and more.
It was expected that Samsung would release the final build of Android 8 Oreo to older devices only after launching the Galaxy S9. It recently launched the Galaxy A8+ in India that still runs on Android 7 Nougat, more than four months after the official launch of the Android 8 Oreo. For context, OnePlus has already updated its smartphones to Android 8 Oreo while the Pixel devices are running Android 8.1 Oreo.
