Samsung had recently released the Android 8.0 Oreo update for Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. However, the South Korean had stop the rollout suddenly as some Galaxy S8/S8+ users encountered unexpected reboots. There is no confirmation on when it will be resuming the release of Oreo update for Galaxy S8 and S8+, but fresh information reveals that the company seems to be preparing the release of the latest Android version for Galaxy Note 8.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 with model number SM-N950F/DS has been spotted at Wi-Fi Alliance with Android 8.0 Oreo. The SM-N950F is the model number of Note 8 that was made available in Europe and Australia and DS is its dual-SIM edition. All the major software updates are required to undergo new Wi-Fi certification before they are officially made available to the end-user. Since Note 8 with Oreo update has received Wi-Fi certification, it appears that the arrival of the new software is close at hand for the phablet.
In the previous month, the beta build of Android 8.0 Oreo update for Note 8 had revealed the list of Galaxy smartphones and tablets that will be treated with Oreo update. As of this writing, there is no official confirmation yet on when Samsung will be releasing Oreo update for Note 8. However, the company could be hoping that the Galaxy Note 8 owners do not encounter the same rebooting issue that some of the S8 and S8+ users have encountered.
On Sunday, the South Korean tech giant will be announcing the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ flagship phones. Both the smartphones will come loaded with Android 8.0 Oreo and Samsung Experience 9.0 UI.
