In November 2017 the most popular version of the Android operating system remains Marshmallow, the 6th version of this OS that saw the light of day in 2015. As we dream about Android Oreo, remember that still only 0.3% of all Active mobile devices using this platform from Google have already received it. That said, when will such an update come to the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 +?

The answer does not seem right or imperative but can be inferred from some actions of the brand itself and the evidence left by the sammobile, among other publications dedicated to the South Korean construction company.
First, yesterday the brand put a brake on the distribution of the second test version beta of its interface and firmware already based on the Android Oreo operating system that was coming to users in the United States of America, as the blog TheAndroidSoul, At issue was an error that caused general instability in the Samsung Galaxy S8.
Android Oreo's third "Beta" has reached the Samsung Galaxy S8
However, and after promising a quick correction of this same instability, behold today reaches users beta, the third test build for the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 + smartphones.
The new build has the number G950U1UEU1ZQK8 for the first device in its non-carrier version and G955U1UEU1ZQK8 to the second. It weighs about 46.82MB and this may vary slightly – 137.89MB for carrier-related variants.
That said, the third Beta will be one of the last, if not the last before the long-awaited stable and global release that will reach all users of both top-of-the-line builders of South Korea.
Note that some US carriers are also making available versions beta for its users, which is unfortunately not yet very common in Europe.
Once we realize the arrival of this third round of testing on Android Oreo, the arrival of its stable version to the average user will largely depend on the success of this latest testing phase, available in the United States, South Korea but not in UK. .
What's New in Android Oreo for Samsung Galaxy S8:
- Advanced system of Snoozing to put those Apps battery thirsty sleeping soundly
- Time out for notifications (notifications will be available for a limited time to be set by you)
- Notifications will have name tags to more easily identify them.
- New emojis to color your messages.
- AutoFill of multiple forms
- Photo-by-photo mode in video playback
- Enhanced Operating System Security
However, as you can see here at EBox, Samsung's Turkish branch will have said in the past that Android Oreo will reach its Samsung Galaxy S8 and other high-end devices like the Galaxy Note 8 from January 2018.
In short, if you have a high-end brand you should receive this update during the first quarter of 2018. The company will be expected to update first flagships, with prevalence for units not linked (unlocked) to the operator.
May we have a surprise and see this update coming before the end of the year to our smartphones? This is a hypothesis, not very likely, but will depend mainly on the success and feed back of this third beta release.
