Samsung Galaxy S7/S7 edge, A5 2017, and Xcover 4 to get Android 8.0 Oreo soon
Now that it's done with the Galaxy S8/S8+ and Note 8, Samsung prepares Android 8.0 Oreo updates for other smartphones. The Galaxy S7 and S7 edge are surely among the most probable candidates for Android 8.0 Oreo updates, but Samsung plans to deploy the update to some mid-range handsets as well.

A handful of Samsung smartphones powered by Android 8.0 Oreo have been recently spotted at Wi-Fi Alliance, even though they have been originally released on the market with an older version of the OS on board.

Among them, we reckon there are some nice surprises like the Galaxy A5 (2017) and Galaxy A3 (2017). Also, the Samsung Xcover 4 is listed at Wi-Fi Alliance as well, along with the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge.

Aside from the smartphones listed at Wi-Fi Alliance, we're also expecting the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 to receive the Android 8.0 Oreo update as well. Unfortunately, the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge are too old to still be eligible for a software upgrade, and since Samsung recently dropped support for these two phones, it's unlikely they will receive any new updates in the future.
