While this news is indeed exciting for anyone carrying a Galaxy S8 around, here’s still no indication as to when these updates may be available. It could be later this year or even next year, we really don’t know when it comes to Samsung. However, even though we do not know when any Oreo update is expected, the good news is that thanks to Samsung’s usage of multi-CSC firmwares, it shouldn’t take all too long for those around the globe to receive it once the software has been thoroughly tested.
SamMobile, which has a strong track record when it comes to Samsung leaks, claims the technology firm may initiate a “beta-testing program for early adopters, like it did for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge“ soon.
The Android 8.0 update for Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ will be called G955FXXU1BQI1 and G950FXXU1BQI1, SamMobile claims.
Hopefully, Samsung will be able to get the new version of Android out of the door a little quicker this year.
