You may soon be able to get Android 8.0 Oreo updates for Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ as development work has started for the same. From the recent developments, it looks the company will soon launch its beta program for Oreo soon.
We have sighted two Oreo firmware versions for both devices namely G950FXXE1ZQI7 and G955FXXU1ZQI7. We have noticed in the past Samsung using the letter ‘Z’ for test firmware and so is the case in the models mentioned above and similarly when Samsung released the beta version of Nougat for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge last year. The exact date of the release is not known for now but the release looks a strong possibility.
Google keeping the intention to help the manufacturers release major software updates on time and quicker than ever has already made necessary changes in the form of Project Treble. Stil, it needs to be seen how Project Treble will truly be useful as far as Oreo for Samsung devices is concerned as the Samsung’s Android segment is amongst the heaviest out there in terms of features and overall customisation. Apart from this Samsung is concurrently releasing software updates for its 2017 flagships across many countries. Looking at Samsung’s track record we should see Android 8.0 Oreo updates for Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ releasing in a timely manner.
Any further development with the release of the Android 8.0 Oreo updates for Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ will be reported here. Keep following us for latest developments related to Android updates.
