Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ receiving Android 8.0 Oreo update

Today’s the day. After beta testing the Android 8.0 Oreo update for some time now, South Korean tech giant Samsung is finally rolling out the stable build of Android 8.0 Oreo to its 2017 flagship smartphones – the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+.


Samsung has started rolling out the Android 8.0 Oreo update for the Galaxy S8 and S8+ which were launched last year in March with Android 7.0 Nougat. However, the update is currently only rolled out in Germany, and, it is first being rolled out to those who were a part of the beta program. After all, the beta testers too deserve some appreciation.


That said, the Android Oreo update weighs around 490 MB in size, however, the update that will be rolled out to those who did not enroll in the beta program would be significantly larger – around 1 GB. Having said that, this Oreo update also brings along newer version of Samsung Experience which is Samsung Experience 9.0, and, the latest Android security patch that’s dated February 1, 2018.

This Android 8.0 Oreo update is 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.

Now that Samsung has started rolling out the Android 8.0 Oreo update for Galaxy S8 and S8+ in Germany, users in other countries should expect to receive the Oreo update soon.
