In November, Samsung talked about the Android 8.0 Oreo update, the beta version, for the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus. It’s presently been two months since they started to test it.
January 5th to be the last day for you to join
They stated that they will not let people to have access to the public beta program starting today, January 5th. So hurry up, it’s your last chance to join it, because this whole testing period will end on January 15th.
This implies a certain something: Samsung is finished with the tests and it is getting ready to formally launch the Android 8.0 Oreo operating system to people in the near future. And it might really be true, given the fact that we’ve heard this before, in past reports, that it could occur before the end of the month.
It’s a real deal, actually
Glancing in the past, Samsung’s Android 8.0 Oreo really takes after an indistinguishable calendar from a year ago’s Android 7 Nougat update: It started with five beta versions and after they decided to make it public.
So everything it’s settled down now, right?
One more thing had to be done in order for the new update to become public. Some Samsung Galaxy S8 models had to get certifications at the Wi-Fi Alliance. This is also another proof that the operating system will soon be released.
US people to get discouraged?
Curiously, the US models were not on that list, so they didn’t need any certification, so is this a way of telling us that it may take a somewhat longer period for Samsung to convey the Oreo update to S8 models at the US shippers?
