- Samsung distributed three Beta Builds till now
- Apparently third build is relatively stable in all of Samsung’s testing markets
- Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus to run on Android 8.0 Oreo
Samsung is all set to launch Galaxy S8 Stable Android 8.0 in the late of January or the early days of February, 2018. Usually, Samsung gives priority to flagship devices according to the age, but this time it is making an exception by going with Galaxy S8 Series for Android Oreo. The Galaxy Note 8 will receive the 8.0 Oreo after it is successful on Galaxy S8. There is also another rumor floating in the market that Samsung might try new S Pen-equipped phablet to gets enrolled in its Oreo beta as an experiment. Although, this has proven to be unsuitable for a beta build.
Nonetheless, the South Korean company is trying to test the software, so that the releases doesn’t get pushed back. Perhaps not surprisingly, this is one of the reasons why Samsung has tried three beta builds in the past few weeks. As already known that the earlier step of the company in building Android 8.0 Oreo for Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S9 had proven to be a bad experience with devices unable to receive a regular signal. Still, it is expected that the new Oreo 8.0 will be supporting the Project Treble, thereby being more suitable to receive updates in a better manner than the predecessors.
The confirmation of the testing news has been done by one of the Samsung’s British Officials in a discussion that was hosted by Samsung Galaxy Beta Community service. According to this official the third build has been relatively stable and this has created a positive wave that due to the unavailability of any major bugs in all the Samsung’s testing market, Galaxy S8 might get soon released with stable Oreo 8.0 running on it. Interestingly, the timing of both stable Android 8.0 Oreo debut on Samsung Galaxy S8 will be coinciding with the unveiling of Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge, which will be running on Android. Only time will tell, which one will be more successful.
