Samsung started working on Android 8 Oreo updates for Galaxy S8 and S8+


Samsung is undoubtedly planning to update many of its high-end and mid-range smartphones to Android 8.0 Oreo, but the company has yet to share specific details on the matter. Fortunately, if you own a Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+, it looks like you won't have to wait too long to get an official taste of Oreo.

 

According to SamMobile, Samsung has started working on Android Oreo updates for both the S8 and S8+. Reportedly, the Oreo firmware version could be G950FXXU1BQI1 on the Galaxy S8, and G955FXXU1BQI1 on the Galaxy S8+. For now, there is no word on when Samsung is hoping to start rolling out the updates, but it would be cool if it managed to release them in the coming months.

 

Other manufacturers, including HTC and Huawei, already promised that they'd try to update select devices to Oreo before the end of the year. Back to Samsung, we're certainly expecting the Galaxy S8 and S8+ to be its first phones to get Android 8.0 Oreo, perhaps joined by the Galaxy Note 8. We'll just have to wait and see exactly when the updates arrive.
