Earlier this month, Samsung had initiated rolling out the Android 8.0 Oreo update for the flagship Galaxy S8 duo, that update however encountered some glitch which lead to the eventual suspension of the rollout. It has only been a couple of days since we spotted the Galaxy Note 8 on Wi-Fi alliance running Oreo, and while we speculated that the development could be an indication that the suspended roll out for the Galaxy S8 could be resumed soon, the device is now reportedly receiving a fresh dose of the Android 8.0 Oreo.
Reports have it that a section of the Galaxy S8 and S8 plus users in Germany are now receiving the update with version number G950FXXU1CRB7 for the S8, and G955XXU1CRB7 for the S8+. Users are required to set aside 1.5GB of space for the update as it weighs in at 530MB.
Aside from the usual Android Oreo features, the latest update comes with Google’s latest February 2018 security patch as well as an improved version of Samsung’s Experience UX to Galaxy S8 and S8+ mobiles, the version which likely will ship with the Galaxy S9 when it launches next month.becomes official in a few days time.
The update is currently only available to users in Germany, it should be available in other regions soon if you haven’t gotten it already, so do keep an eye out for it.
