The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 was officially unveiled yesterday. Although Android 8.0 Oreo had already been introduced, the new smartphone does not have this version of the operating system, but with Android 7.1 Nougat. When will the update for the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 to Android 8.0 Oreo be available?
Android 8.0 Oreo for Samsung Galaxy Note 8
When Google announced the new version of the Android 8.0 Oreo operating system, it was stated that one of the mobile manufacturers that could present the update for their smartphones before the end of 2017 would be Samsung. It seems logical that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is going to be one of the smartphones that will have the update to Android 8.0 Oreo before the end of 2017, because after all is one of the best smartphones in the market. However, when will you actually receive the update to Android 8.0 Oreo the Samsung Galaxy Note 8?
There is no confirmed date for update availability. In fact, it has not even been confirmed that the smartphone will update to Android 8.0 Oreo, although it is obvious that it will be. However, the fact that it has not been announced as something remarkable could be due to the fact that the update might not be available until the end of 2017.
Samsung Galaxy S8 could upgrade in 2017
However, it is possible that the Samsung Galaxy S8 does receive the update in 2017. Since the mobile was already in the market when the trial versions of Android O have been introduced, and it does not have as many software innovations as the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, it is possible that the update to Android 8.0 Oreo for the Samsung Galaxy S8 arrive in 2017, not in 2018, as it would not require so much customization by Samsung.
