Android 8.0 Oreo update coming to Samsung phones in early 2018
Samsung has already started working on the Android 8.0 Oreo update and it will come to its phones in the beginning of 2018, according to Samsung Turkey. The information is published on an official Samsung Turkey portal Güncel Miyiz.
There are no further details or specifics: no release date for the update, no timeline for particular devices, but of course the flagship Samsung Galaxy Note 8 as well as the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus are expected to be first in line to get updated to Android 8 Oreo.
Wave goodbye to your hopes of faster Android software updates
Last year, Samsung updated its flagship phones to Nougat in the beginning of the year as well, so there is basically no progress in terms of how fast those updates come. This year, once again, users will have to wait months and months for an Android 8 Oreo update that Google's Pixel phones have already had for weeks.
The major new features that Android 8.0 Oreo brings are:
- picture-in-picture video
- notification in different sizes
- notification dots
- various performance and security improvements
