Samsung Galaxy S8

The report says that the beta testers will first get the update followed by existing owners now on Nougat. As spotted by SamMobile, the Android 8.0 Oreo update is finally rolling out to the Galaxy S8, with people in Germany already installing the fresh software.

It goes without saying that the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 Edge will eventually receive an official update to Oreo. After all, the beta testers too deserve some appreciation.

It's likely that once the update arrives on your phone, it'll pop up in an update screen where you'll be prompted to plug the phone in and then install the update. For now, all you can do is wait it out and keep checking your phone's Settings for an update. When exactly will your region get it is unknown but the important thing is that the S8 is getting Oreo after what seemed like an eternity since it was released by Google.

Samsung has just ended the Oreo Beta testing program a couple of weeks ago on January 15th.

Rather amusingly, the firmware version is G955XXU1CRAP, although we're glad to say that Android Oreo is far from being crap.

If you have either Galaxy S8 handset, you can manually check for software updates right now. Both devices are eligible for one more major Android platform update and that's Oreo. However, according to SamMobile, everyone else now running Android 7.x Nougat will start receiving the update starting tomorrow (at least in the German market).
