Final Android 8 Oreo is coming to multiple Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ devices

Final Android 8 Oreo is coming to multiple Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ devices
For a while now, Samsung has been running a Beta program for early adopters that wish to test out Android 8 Oreo on their devices before it hits the public in an official update. Last we heard, enlisted Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ devices were receiving their fifth Oreo beta patch, fixing both major and minor bugs. It now seems that Samsung is prepping to roll out the update to a number of its S8 and S8+ phones worldwide.

Watchers have spotted multiple versions of the flagship duo getting certifications over at the Wi-Fi Alliance — a non-profit that certifies Wi-Fi products. The models that went through are SM-G950F, SM-G955F, SM-G950FD, SM-G955FD, SM-G950N, SM-G955N, SM-G950X, SM-G955X, SM-G950XN, SM-G955XN, SM-G950XC.

Translation: these are the European, Asian (India and Singapore), Korean, and Global versions of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. And this does fall in line with earlier reports that stated the official update would be arriving by the end of January.

Now, you may have noticed that the US version is nowhere to be seen on this list. It's a good bet that Stateside users might have to wait a bit longer, especially the ones that have carrier-issued devices. Sadly, that's the way the cookie crumbles in the world of Android, but, hopefully, Project Treble — which comes with Oreo — might finally remedy this delay issue for future devices.
