Samsung begins working on Galaxy S8 Oreo update

Himanshu, 09 September 2017

According to a new report, Samsung has started working on the Oreo update for its Galaxy S8 series of smartphones. The update could carry firmware version of G955FXXU1BQI1 and G950FXXU1BQI1 for the S8 and S8+, respectively.

While there's no information on the roll out time-frame, the report notes the South Korean company will likely kick off a beta testing program before pushing out the update to all. It also says the firm might not implement all Android 8.0 features in the update.

Recently, OnePlus started pushing the Oreo update to the OnePlus 3 closed beta channel. Among other manufacturers, HTC, Sony, Huawei, and HMD (Nokia) have also confirmed their Oreo update plans.

I hope s8 users are willing to wait until next year. The note 5 is the last samsung i will ever buy, samsung is extremely lazy with updates. keyword extremely.

S8 Google Play Edition would be fare enough ;-)

So apparently all these companies are stupid enough Not to start working on the New version while they are still in Beta to have everything ready as Soon as possible! It's so sad that consumers have to endure such laziness!
