Samsung Galaxy S8 Oreo update is definitely in the cart and here we track the timeline of S8 Android 8.0 update, how to update.
Samsung Galaxy S8 is definitely the most innovative smartphone of 2017 and it’s always top of the line to receive the Android software updates. It’s’ the Galaxy S8 new update that is due arrival by the end of the year.
It runs on the Android 7.1.1 Nougat of the box and that’s the latest version currently right now. Google has been knocking doors of their upcoming Android version i.e., the Android Oreo update.
When you talk about the Samsung phones to receive the latest software, the flagship phones will receive it first. That has become the tradition. Among the flagship, we have both Galaxy Note 8 and Galaxy S8 as the probable devices to get the update. This Galaxy S8 software update will be delivered through Over the Air roll-out and this doesn’t require the intervention of wires or PC. You can do the update on the go as well.
Once the update is available, Google will send OTA notification to your device, right on your notification panel. You can force check for the update by going to and then tap on Settings > About Device > Software.
It will be a major update to Galaxy S8 and would be costing more than 1 GB of size. You should be prepared to download the data using the Wi-Fi or you may incur additional data charges from your carrier if you use 4G LTE to download the package file.
