A few days ago, we reported that the stable Oreo update is now available for Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus units in Germany. This morning, we also reported that some 2015 Samsung smartphones on T-mobile network will be getting the Android Oreo update. With all these, it appears that the South Korean manufacturing giant is currently interested in upgrading its smartphones to Oreo. Android 8.0 update to the Galaxy S8 users brings the new Experience 9.0 user interface and many new features. However, the first batch is presently limited to Germany and the global roll-out is yet to come.
Gizchina News of the week
According to a Samsung official, Samsung’s Experience 9.0 Beta version will be successfully concluded on February 9 (yesterday), after which the beta feedback will be disabled and Samsung will release the official version of the software as soon as possible. Seeing that this has been concluded, it is expected that the Android Oreo update will be released globally in the coming days.
Android 8.0’s focus is on battery life, speed, and security. This new system increases background Apps with some operating restrictions. This limitation extends Android’s battery life in Doze mode to a certain extent, and the application of this limitation on the background will speed up the operation. In addition, Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy S8 Active, Galaxy Note FE, Galaxy S7 series and Galaxy A/C/J series phones will also be upgraded to Android 8.0. Galaxy Note 8 is expected to be the next to update to Android 8.0.
