Samsung Galaxy Tab A 2017 and Tab A 10.1 2016 to receive Android Oreo soon
Luckily, there are other ways to tell which devices will be updated such as scouring the Wi-Fi Alliance's database. At the latest search, two Samsung devices that might receive Android Oreo updates popped up – the Galaxy Tab A 2017 and Galaxy Tab A 10.1 2016.
Since Samsung launched multiple versions, it's hard to tell which ones will be updated to Oreo and in what order. But according to Wi-Fi Alliance, the Galaxy Tab A 10.1 2016 Wi-Fi and LTE models will surely receive Android 8.1 Oreo updates, as well as the Sprint variant (SM-T587P).
As far as the Galaxy Tab A 2017 goes, six models appear in the Wi-Fi Alliance's database, all running Android 8.0 Oreo. Usually, it takes about a month for Samsung to start rolling out a major Android OS update to a device that was certified by Wi-Fi Alliance, so these two tablets might get Oreo as early as October.
