Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 soon to get Android 8.0 Oreo
We already know Samsung has started working on Android Oreo updates for a few Galaxy devices, including the Galaxy Tab S3 tablet, but now we've got the evidence that confirms the initial reports.

Samsung's high-end slate has just been spotted at Wi-Fi Alliance running Android 8.0 Oreo, which means the South Korean company is close to making the highly-anticipated update available to the general public.

The Galaxy Tab S3 is part of the second wave of Samsung devices that are supposed to receive Android 8.0 Oreo updates, alongside smartphones like Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 edge, and Galaxy A5.

Samsung has already kicked off the rollout of Android Oreo for Galaxy S8/S8+ and Note 8, but it will take some time before the update reaches all compatible devices.

It is yet unclear whether or not there will be a third wave of smartphones that Samsung will update to Android Oreo. Since the handset maker launched quite a few products last year that may be eligible for such a software upgrade, there's a chance that Samsung will offer Oreo updates to more devices at some point in 2018. I guess we'll have to wait and see.
