From Samsung Brazil comes a hint that Android Oreo will soon run the International Galaxy S8/S8+

The International Samsung Galaxy S8 might soon receive Android Oreo
If you own the Samsung Galaxy S8 or the Samsung Galaxy S8+, you've been patiently waiting for all beta testing of Android Oreo to end so that the final version of the new Android build can be installed on your phone. Samsung has said that a stable version of the update would be disseminated for beta testing by the end of this month. A sign that the delicious creme filled cookie will be soon on its way to Sammy's 2017 flagships comes from the tech giant's Brazilian website.

Samsung Brazil has posted revised manuals for both the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+. This is a very good sign for those overseas sporting either handset. Why? Because last year, Samsung revised the online user manuals for the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 edge just weeks before Android Nougat was pushed out to the phones.

This could mean that the unlocked International variants of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ (SM-G950FD and SM-G955FD, respectively) will soon offer features like Notification Dots, allowing users to see at a glance if they missed any notifications. A long press on an app icon sporting the dot, will open a menu showing missed notifications. And don't forget adaptive icons, which allows you to choose between different shapes for the icons displayed on your handset. The choices include Squircle, Rounded Square, Square and Teardrop.
