Samsung to kick off Android 8.0 Oreo beta program for Galaxy S8 as early as October 31


Rumor has it Samsung won't release any Android 8.0 Oreo updates until early 2018. If that's true, then a beta program should be in place before the year's end.

A new report claims Samsung will kick off the highly-anticipated Android 8.0 Oreo beta program for Galaxy S8 on October 31. However, not everyone with a Galaxy S8 will be able to enroll into Samsung's beta program.

Apparently, Samsung will initially launch Android 8.0 Oreo beta for Galaxy S8 in the United Kingdom, North America, and South Korea. The second wave of countries getting access to the beta program includes countries like China, Germany, France, India, Poland and Spain.

If you're located in one of these countries and you own either a Galaxy S8 or S8+ smartphone, you will be able to join the Android 8.0 Oreo beta program via Samsung Members application, which can be downloaded from Galaxy Apps and Google Play Store.

It's unclear if the number of testers will be limited or Samsung will allow anyone with a working Galaxy S8/S8+ to enroll into the beta program.
