Samsung Galaxy Note 8’s leaked build of Android 8.0 Oreo has revealed the list of the forthcoming Galaxy smartphones and tablets that may launch this year. Also, it contains the names of Samsung’s smartphones and tablets that will be treated with Android 8.0 Oreo.
Various smartphone manufactures such as HTC, Motorola, Nokia and so on have started the rollout of Android 8.0 for their smartphones. Samsung is one of the smartphone companies that are quite slow at rolling out new Android version. It is yet to release to Android 8.0 Oreo update for its 2017 flagship phones like Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+ and Galaxy Note 8. Here is the list of smartphones that will be receiving the Android 8.0 Oreo:
Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy Note FE, Galaxy W2018, Galaxy S8+, Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8 Active, Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge
Galaxy A8 (2018), Galaxy A8+ (2018), Galaxy A3 (2017), Galaxy A5 (2017), Galaxy A7 (2017) and Galaxy A8 (2016).
Galaxy J7 (2017), Galaxy J7 Prime (2017), Galaxy J7+ (2017), Galaxy J7 Duos (2017), Galaxy J7 Max (2017), Galaxy J7 Neo (2017), Galaxy J5 (2017) and Galaxy J3 (2017).
Galaxy Tab S3 SM-T825 (2017), Galaxy Tab A 8.0 SM-T380/T385 (2017), Galaxy Tab Active 2 (2017), Galaxy Tab A 10.1 SM-T580 (2016), Galaxy Tab E 8.0 (2016), and Galaxy Tab A 8.0 SM-T355 (2015) are the tablets that are likely to receive Oreo update.. The presence of the 2015 Galaxy Tab A tablet in the list seems out of place as it was launched with Android 5.0 Lollipop. Hence, it is unlikely to receive Oreo upgrade.
The following phones that are not listed above are expected to receive the Android 8.0 Oreo update since they were launched within the last two years: Galaxy C9 Pro, Galaxy C7 Pro, Galaxy J7 Pro, Galaxy J5 Pro and Galaxy S7 Active.
Some of the mid-range and low-end phones may not receive the Android 8.0 Oreo update this year. Samsung is yet to release an official statement on the Galaxy smartphones and tablets that are eligible to receive Oreo update. Since the Galaxy S8 and S8+ phones are going to receive the Oreo update in the near future, the company may release the official list of Oreo upgradeable devices soon.
