Samsung Galaxy S8 gets refreshed design as Android 8.0 Oreo …
If we take a look at last year’s Galaxy S7, most users in the UK began receiving the update in March.
This was mainly due to Samsung releasing the update but the networks then taking their time to test it before pushing it out to consumers.
Speaking to Express.co.uk earlier in the year an EE spokesperson revealed: “Like the majority of UK networks, we’re working with Samsung and hope to have an approved nougat O/S file to roll out to our Galaxy S7 customers shortly.”
The same is likely to happen with Oreo as Samsung will have to complete their checks before it then being made available to the networks.
So, if your an S8 or S8+ owner don’t expect to see an update before the Christmas.
In fact, with the Galaxy S9 expected to be revealed in February, this looks like the most realistic time for Samsung to push out an operating system upgrade to all of its users.
