Android Oreo beta for Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+ ends tomorrow (January 26th)

Samsung sent out a message to those Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ users who have been beta testing the Android 8.0 (Oreo) update. Besides thanking participants for their cooperation in being part of the beta program, the company said that the beta testing for the 2017 flagship models will end on January 26th, which happens to be tomorrow. Samsung says that it now looks forward to releasing the official Android 8.0 update as soon as possible.

After the program comes to an end tomorrow, Samsung will not disseminate any more beta software releases. While the beta community will still be able to communicate with each other, Samsung says that it will not respond to feedback sent to it by those who were beta testing Android 8.0 on their Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+.

Even though the beta program comes to an end tomorrow, we still do not have any timeline that tells us when to expect the final, official version of Oreo to be made available to owners of Samsung's 2017 flagship models. Considering that the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will launch with Android 8.0 inside,  it would make sense for Sammy to release the update for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ around February 25th, the date that the new models will be unveiled during a Samsung Unpacked event in Barcelona.
