You might have anticipated that the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the Note 8 are going to receive the latest Android 8.0 Oreo update this year. Well, the beta release has already reached the Galaxy S8, but it has caused some difficulties to the said device. This was after the beta version blocked some devices from receiving network signal in the United States.
A lot of beta testers have submitted complaints about this issue via forums. So, Samsung has issued an apology regarding the incident. Thus, the company promises to provide new software when they have already fixed the issue. Nevertheless, some users of the beta program have found a way to solve this. The said method is clearing the storage data, which frees the device of any unwanted issues. However, it is not a guarantee that it should be able to fix it.
Samsung has been working so hard to provide users with a taste of the latest update with the beta release. So, users are given the opportunity to use the advanced features not yet available in the older Android versions.
The company has confirmed it though that it will be running the Android Nougat until the earlier part of 2018. Despite that, Samsung has also confirmed working with the pilot for Android 8.0 Oreo to be released in the first quarter of next year.
The said Android Oreo update should minimize the background load, allowing apps to load a lot faster. Among the new features are the picture-in-picture video, new notifications, new emoji, and the Night Mode. But, Samsung devices might not be the first to receive the Android 8.0 Oreo. Nevertheless, the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the Note 8 will surely be among the first wave to get the latest Android update.
