Samsung resumes roll-out of Android 8.0 Oreo update for Galaxy S8

South Korean tech giant Samsung started rolling out the Android 8.0 Oreo update for Galaxy S8 and S8+ in multiple countries two weeks ago. However, just a week later, Samsung halted the Oreo update for both these smartphones due to reports of unexpected reboots coming in. Well now, Samsung has finally resumed the Oreo update for these 2017 flagships.


The update that was halted carried version number G950FXXU1CRAP and G955FXXU1CRAP, whereas, the one that’s being rolled out now carries version number G950FXXU1CRB7 and G955FXXU1CRB7. Those who had already updated their smartphone with the last update will receive the new update that weighs around 530 MB in size. However, those who didn’t will receive a larger file.


The new Oreo update for both the Galaxy S8 and S8+ is currently rolling out in Germany, but, we expect it to be rolled out in other countries pretty soon.

As this is an Oreo update, it brings along some new features like Picture-in-Picture Mode, Notification Snoozing, Autofill framework and more to the Galaxy S8 and S8+. Besides, it also updates the Samsung Experience to Samsung Experience 9.0. Furthermore, the update also carries along the latest Android security patch that’s dated February 1, 2018.

This new update with bug fixes for reboot issue is being rolled out over the air, and, if you happen to live in Germany, you can check for the update manually by heading over to the Settings > Software update menu.

Like we already said, this update will also roll-out in other countries, including India, pretty soon. And when it does, we will let you know.
