Samsung is expected to update many of its high-end and mid-range smartphones to Android 8.0 Oreo. However, the company is yet to release a list containing the name of smartphones that would be updated to the latest version of Android.
In any case, this year's flagships Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus are definitely going to receive the Android Oreo update before any other Samsung device. Well, it seems like the day is not far when the Galaxy S8 duo will be updated to Android Oreo. We say this as the publication SamMobile claims Samsung has already started working on Android Oreo update for the aforementioned smartphones.
According to the report, the Oreo firmware version could be G950FXXU1BQI1 on the Galaxy S8, while for Galaxy S8 Plus it will be G955FXXU1BQI1.
As of now, it is not known from when exactly Samsung will start rolling out the updates, but it wouldn't be too long. So presumably in the coming months, the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus owners would be able to use all the new features brought by Android Oreo. After the Galaxy S8 duo, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will be the next device to get the Oreo update.
Besides Samsung, manufacturers such as HTC and Huawei have also assured its customers that some of their devices would be updated to Android 8.0 Oreo by the end of this year.
Currently, the Sony Xperia XZ1 and XZ1 Compact are the only devices to feature the Android Oreo. Also, in certain regions, the Google Pixel and Pixel XL have also received the Android Oreo update.
