Samsung Galaxy S8 Android 8.0 Oreo update starts rolling out

However, Samsung Galaxy S8 won't have Project Treble support.

Nearly six months after Google officially launched the Android 8.0 Oreo, Samsung has released the updated operating system for the first of its devices. By the looks of things, Samsung has prepared different multi-window UI implementations to make use of the wide screen when the Galaxy X is folded out. The Exynos variant is expected to be better, although, no such leak for the Exynos variants yet.

Elsewhere, the iPhone X packs 3GB RAM, compared to the S9's rumoured 6GB, and a choice of 64GB or 256GB built-in storage. So it seems possible that the results are for the Galaxy S9.

The company hasn't confirmed Android 8.0 Oreo for the Samsung Galaxy J series, but owners of select Galaxy J7, Galaxy J5, and Galaxy J3 models should get upgraded to Oreo.

This is the first time we've been able to see the Galaxy S9 from a lower angle in a leak. The regular S9 is said to have a 12MP sensor on the back with a variable aperture of f/1.5 to f/2.4. But the device will start capturing slo-mo videos only when it detects movements.


Unlike the original DeX, the new version looks like a power bank that comes a protruding connector at the bottom to mount your Galaxy device. The smaller S9 will however come with a single 12-mp camera.

The connections you'll find on the device now are two USB ports, an HDMI port, a USB Type-C port and the male USB Type-C connector for the Galaxy S9 to plug into.

The peripheral is expected to launch alongside the Galaxy S9, and allow it to connect to a computer monitor, mouse and keyboard for a desktop-like experience.

The update will bring lots of new features to Samsung's flagship handsets, and as you'd imagine, it's not just the improvements that Google provides.

The photos also show the Bixby button placed below the volume rockers on the side.
