Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ get Oreo in China

Ivan, 13 April 2018

The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ are receiving the Android 8.0 Oreo update in China right now.

The update brings many bug fixes and optimizations along many new features. Samsung brings the new Samsung Experience 9.0 to the Galaxy S8/S8+ which is noticeably faster than the previous version.

New features include Biometrics - it allows biometric (Face, Iris or Fingerprint) log in for apps and websites if you have selected a secure lockscreen type (pattern, PIN or password). There are notification badges on homescreen icons, contextual options when you press and hold on an app icon, the keyboard has been revamped with a new toolbar with quick access, and a GIF, there's a new Bixby panel and more.

The update clocks in at 1396.38MB so you'd better have enough battery and time to install it.
