Android 8 Oreo for Galaxy S8: beta program allegedly coming soon for US residents
A quick rundown of how this will reportedly work — there are only 7,500 spots for the entire USA. Participants would have to have a Galaxy S8 that's on T-Mobile or Sprint. Signup is done via the Samsung+ or Samsung Members app and the beta will open up next Tuesday, the 31st of October.
As far as new features go, we expect some goodies like the new notification dots to either replace Samsung's badges or at least give you the option to switch to them, power consumption optimizations, picture-in-picture, and lots of other tiny updates that improve overall device workflow.
We've got no news whether the beta program would expand to other carriers or internationally anytime soon.
