Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Android 8.0 Oreo release imminent


Samsung had rolled out the Android 8.0 Oreo beta update to the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ users who got themselves enrolled into the beta program before releasing the stable version of Oreo update. However, the South Korean brand didn’t offer Galaxy Note 8 users any such option, leaving users with a question about when would they get the latest version of Android. Now, it looks like the Oreo update for the Galaxy Note 8 is imminent as the phone has appeared in WFA Alliance’s database running the Android 8.0.

Galaxy Note 8 Android 8.0 Oreo Update

The Galaxy Note 8 (SM-N950F) was spotted in WFA Alliance’s database a few days ago, giving us a hint towards the imminent Android 8.0 Oreo update. Although, Samsung hasn’t confirmed any Oreo rollout plans for its highest-end smartphone right now, the recent WFA certification listing can be taken as a hint that the update could be released soon. We also expect the company to release the update with February 2018 or March 2018 security patch depending on which month the Android 8.0 is released in. However, the recent update for the Note 8 didn’t bring the latest security patch which was rolled out a few days ago.

Apart from that, it also appears that Samsung has stopped the Android 8.0 Oreo update rollout for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ in some regions. It was being rumoured that the Korean electronics giant is working on rolling out the Android 8.1 update for the phones, but the Android 8.0 update has now been resumed. The upcoming smartphones, Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+, are due for an official unveiling on February 25 and we’re pretty sure they would come preloaded with Android 8.0 Oreo. Both these smartphones will resemble their predecessors, and the Galaxy S9 will feature a 5.8-inch screen, while the Galaxy S9+ will come with a 6.2-inch screen.

Samsung will use either the the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 or the Exynos 9810 SoC, depending on the market. The Galaxy S9 will feature 4GB RAM and 64GB storage, while the Galaxy S9+ will come equipped with 6GB of RAM and up to 256GB internal storage. Other features of the phones include IP68 certification for dust and water resistance, AKG-tuned stereo speakers, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, Samsung Pay no, and wireless charging. With only three days remaining for the official launch of the phones, we recommend you to stay tuned to us to learn more about the Galaxy S9 and S9+.
