Another leaked list confirms which Samsung devices will receive Android 8.0 Oreo

Samsung is one of the companies that never say which of its devices are going to be updated to a new major Android version. However, those who own Samsung flagships usually receive Android updates for about two years or so.

Basically, that would mean that the Galaxy S6 and all its variations should receive the latest Android 8.0 Oreo update at some point, even though Samsung has yet to confirm the information.

A list of Samsung devices that will supposedly be updated to Android 8.0 Oreo has just popped up on China's Weibo social network. Obviously, we can't vouch for its authenticity, but it's worth mentioning that it's been posted by a well-known Samsung leaker (ice universe).

The list is long enough to contain lots of devices, including the Galaxy S6, S6 edge and S6 edge+, as well as most of the 2017 Galaxy A series. Many Samsung tablets will receive the Android Oreo update too.

More importantly, it looks like the list contains the name of the new 2018 Galaxy A series smartphones, which haven't been announced yet: Galaxy A3 (2018), Galaxy A5 (2018) and Galaxy A7 (2018). Apparently, all of them will come with Android Nougat at launch, but they will be updated to Oreo at a later date.

Holy Molly! My S6 is eligible for Oreo? THE OREO? That's fantastic! This is an ancient phone, over two year old, which came with Android Lollipop, and now it's getting Oreo? GreenMan is pleased! I though I'd have to go 'Lineage' to get my paws on Oreo! GreenMan is grateful! G'Day!

I'm surprised that Galaxy Tab A (2016) Duo is also getting Oreo! Most of their owners thought they're stuck with Lollipop forever!

I would not be so surprised knowing that the Galaxy Tab A 9.7 came from the factory with Android Lollipop, and received Android Marshmallow and Android Nougat.

By the middle of 2018, things can still change. I recommend caution, for now.

If it's J7 2016 or J7 Prime, it's best not to get too excited for now.

Samsung reps say the Galaxy S6 will be updated to Android 8.0 Oreo

Does not sound reliable to me. I'd rather wait for a Wi-Fi Alliance certification.

Trying to stir up trouble? Why do you care about a phone you don't own or use?


Posts: 134; Member since: Feb 21, 2016

No way. On the contrary. I'm just alerting the people who saw this news to expect more information than already giving credibility to a conversation with the technical support, since there has already been information coming out of conversations like this are not true. The truth is people believe in information they often need to have safer sources to become truly trustworthy.

That's fantastic support Samsung. For the short time I had an S6 Edge, I really enjoyed it, so I'm really glad to see it get another major update!

You've used a samsung phone and you enjoyed it?? But i thought you were against samsung?? I've always seen you as an "apple/pixel boy" since you never fail to defend them

Great to see 2015 phones getting the update. Samsung again proving they are the leaders of the Android space.

So the Tab S2 is going get it too? Find that kinda hard to believe.


Posts: 134; Member since: Feb 21, 2016

Just do not get too excited, because there is a good chance that only the Value Edition model will be contemplated.

It's too old. Do you want Samsung to be like Apple, upgrading phones; whose hardware can't handle the update? Slowing them down or bricking them so you get mad and spend money to buy the latest model?
