  • Samsung phones will get Android Oreo update in early 2018: Report

We can not say we are totally surprised, as Samsung is the only leading Android OEM that is yet to say anything regarding the Oreo update. As far as new features go, we expect some goodies like the new notification dots to either replace Samsung's badges or at least give you the option to switch to them, power consumption optimizations, picture-in-picture, and lots of other tiny updates that improve overall device workflow.

Nokia just announced a beta program for Android 8.0 Oreo OS for their phones, and now Samsung is following the suit. The last year's debacle did hit the brand image of Samsung but the company took every possible action to mend the dent.

According to the leak, there will be 7500 spots open per device with a release on Sprint and T-Mobile. Other companies such as LG, HTC, Huawei, and HMD Global are expected to begin rolling out the Oreo update for their smartphones before the end of the year.

The Samsung Galaxy S7 Android Nougat beta launched in November (November 9th) and stretched into late December ahead of the widespread release in early 2017.

Even though Samsung hasn't come up with a list yet, it is quite obvious that the company will roll out the Oreo update to its 2017 flagship models first. Popular devices like the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy Note 5 weren't included in the program. The report reveals that some Samsung phones - including Galaxy S8 series and Note 8 will get the Oreo sweetness.

While devices like the Galaxy S8, Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy S7, and the rumored Galaxy S9 will nearly certainly run Android Oreo at some point, some popular devices could miss out on the upgrade.
