Galaxy S8 Beta Program Leaks, Oreo Update Round The Corner?

Which stated that the Galaxy lineup of smartphones will start receiving the Oreo update starting from January 2017.

First up, the guys at AndroidWorld.nl have confirmed that a number of Galaxy S8 users have been contacted to take part in the beta program. If previous release pattern is any indication, Samsung will take another month and probably deploy the Android Oreo to the Galaxy S8 series before the end of December across all regions of the world. That seems to be late compared to OEMs like OnePlus, and Nokia who have promised December 2017 rollouts for their flagships.

In August, Google launched the new Android 8.0 Oreo to its Pixel and Nexus series phones and soon after the announcement, several affiliated OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers) enthusiastically listed their devices eligible for new update sparking excitement among Android phone users. On the other hand, though Samsung is the largest Android OEM they are far behind on the OS updates like every time.


The signs of an Oreo beta program for the Galaxy S8 and S8+ were unearthed from Samsung+ and Samsung Members apps, the former exclusive to the US.

Like always if you haven't received the notification yet, just go to Settings About Phone System software updates, to monitor their arrival manually. The second wave will cover regions like China, France, Germany, India, Poland, and Spain. Do not worry if your country is not listed as this is merely a beta update. Comment your thoughts below.
