Samsung Galaxy S8 finally receives Android 8.0 Oreo update

Samsung Galaxy S8 won't have Project Treble support


The much anticipated Android 8.0 Oreo update for Samsung Galaxy S8 is finally out. The update will be first rolled out to the users who had enrolled in beta program. Regular users in Germany will be the first to get Android 8.0 Oreo, followed by other regions.

Samsung Galaxy S8: Project treble supported?

When exactly will your region get it is unknown but the important thing is that the Galaxy S8 is finally getting Oreo after what seemed like an eternity since it was released by Google. The Oreo users will get a chance to use Samsung Experience 9.0. It includes features like a new keyboard, improvements to Bixby, color lens for the display, and more.

However, Samsung Galaxy S8 won’t have Project Treble support. This means the devices won’t benefit from the potentially quicker update times. 

The update size

The update comes in at 487MB for those already on the Oreo beta build, but the file size will be considerably larger for those making the switch from Nougat. We expect it to be around 1.3-1.5 GB. 

The update is much needed at a time when other flagships are rising. Though hardware wise it cant be changed, but a newer software can improve the experience to some extent. Heard about accidental Galaxy S7 edge Oreo update?

What do you think about the update? Will it be stable or be like OnePlus Oreo build?
