Something has gone wrong with the Android 8.0 Oreo beta release, which has kept Samsung Galaxy S8 owners blocked from network signal. The same thing goes for the Note 8, which is set to receive the update by 2018.
The said fiasco was caused by the beta software blocking the handsets in receiving network signal in the U.S. In fact, different forums have made this a hot topic, as beta testers flooded them with complaints.
Samsung said that they are sorry about the inconvenience it may have caused to their users. They promised to release a new software though in as soon as they have it fixed. However, some beta program users who became a victim to this bug have found clearing the storage data on the device to be a potent solution. Nevertheless, it is not a surefire way to fix the issue.
It can be recalled that Samsung has been working hard to get the Android Oreo update to its flagship smartphones. Thus, it has brought the beta release in order to give users a glimpse of what they are going to receive. Thus, users should be able to take advantage of the new clock styles, ability to tweak transparency of notifications, and DeX performance enhancements.
However, Samsung has confirmed that the Galaxy S8 and Note 8 will be running the Android Nougat until early 2018. Samsung has also been working on the Android Oreo pilot that would be released at the start of the New Year.
Samsung has promised that the Oreo update will minimize the background load and it will allow apps to open more swiftly. The new features would include picture-in-picture video, new emoji, new notifications, and a Night Mode. Samsung devices might not be the first to receive the update, but the Galaxy S8 and Note 8 would be included in the first wave.
