Even though most of the top smartphone companies have updated their main handsets to Android Oreo, the new version of the operating system still hasn’t made its debut on Samsung devices. Even Galaxy A8 which is the latest phone unveiled by the company in December 2017 has Android Nougat out of the box. While we are yet to see the latest version on the main flagships by the company, some guys from XDA Developers made a list of the Galaxy devices which will be probably updated to Android Oreo.
The list is based on some XML files found in the Oreo beta firmware for the Note 8, containing the code names of the handsets. While the list is not a final proof of the arrival of the update to Android Oreo for the devices, if we consider the current info and the history of previous updates it is very likely that the handsets listed will receive the update. The Samsung devices contained in the list are Galaxy A3 (2017), Galaxy A5 (2017), Galaxy A7 (2017), Galaxy A8 (2016), Galaxy A8 (2018), Galaxy A8+ (2018), Galaxy J3 (2017), Galaxy J5 (2017), Galaxy J7 (2017), Galaxy J7+, Galaxy J7 Duos (2017), Galaxy J7 Max, Galaxy J7 Neo, Galaxy J7 Prime, Galaxy Note FE, Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 Edge, Galaxy S8 Active, Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+.
