Android 8.0 Oreo Update Under Works for Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus
Samsung has apparently begun its development work on the Android 8.0 Oreo update for its current-gen flagship phones, the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus. It seems the South Korean smartphone giant is desperate to steal the spotlight from OnePlus, which recently started the closed-beta testing for OnePlus 3 Oreo update.
Although Samsung is yet to rollout Android 7.0 update for its low-end and budget mid-range smartphones and tablets, owners of Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus could soon start receiving new Android 8.0 update with firmware builds - G955FXXU1BQl1 and G950FXXU1BQl1.
It is quite possible that Samsung could soon kick off its own beta testing program in line with the OnePlus' Android Oreo closed-beta program. It may be recalled that Samsung had earlier adopted a similar rollout strategy for the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge.
With the adoption of multi-CSC firmware, Samsung is expected to expedite its worldwide rollout process for Android 8.0 Oreo update, once the beta testing phase is over. However, there is still no word on the public availability of the new Oreo update for the Galaxy S8 variants.
Meanwhile, speculation is rife that we might indeed see the Android Oreo rollout on flagship Samsung phones sometime in January 2018.
On the other hand, OnePlus has already made the beta build of Android Oreo available for OnePlus 3 users while HTC, Sony, LG, Motorola are all working hard to bring Google's latest mobile operating system to the masses.
Android 8.0 brings a plethora of goodies with it, including faster boot times, enhanced battery life and a slick user interface with improved response time. It also helps limit the background processes and thereby increases the resource availability of your smartphone for enhanced stability and performance.
Some of the noteworthy features being ported to Android 8.0 Oreo include 60 new emojis with a brand new design, ability to snooze notifications, improved battery menu, better storage controls, adaptive icons, Wi-Fi Aware technology, smart text selection, ambient display and better color depth for imaging apps.
