Rumors of First Samsung Galaxy Android Oreo Update

There were rumors of the first Samsung Galaxy Android 8.0 Oreo update but not for the Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S7.

Samsung isn’t talking about Android 8.0 Oreo plans for Galaxy phones and tablets, but we do know that the company plans to push updates down the road.

Google said it is working with Android manufacturers, including Samsung, to get Android 8.0 Oreo updates before the end of the year. Samsung has not adhered to this timeline, and we do not think we will see when the first Galaxy Android Oreo updates are released.

We haven’t seen anything for current Galaxy devices, but we’ve seen rumors point to an Android 8.0 Oreo update for an unannounced phone.

It probably won’t be the first Galaxy device to run Android Oreo, but the rumored Galaxy S9 will be among the first Galaxy devices to run Google’s new operating system.

According to a report from XDA-DevelopersSamsung has been working hard to follow the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ flagships from 2017.

The report outlines several potential hardware features such as Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, QHD+ Infinity Display at 1440×2960, 4GB of RAM and physical fingerprint reader. It also suggests that the Galaxy S9 will run Android 8.0 with a new version of Samsung Experience out of the box.

While the exact specs may have changed in testing, we would expect Android 8.0 to remain stable. If Sony is new Xperia XZ1 and Xperia XZ1 Compact flagships will launch on Android Oreo, you can expect a big name flagship like the Galaxy S9 to launch Android Oreo out of the box.

Newer devices like the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S7 need to be upgraded to Android Oreo, while some devices like the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy Note 5 are currently in the cutting phase.

Samsung usually keeps Galaxy smartphones and tablets up to date with major Android updates for two years, and these devices and a handful of others have hit the two-year mark.

While the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy Note 5 may miss Android Oreo, software support will not end. Samsung and its carrier partners often extend bug fixes and security patches to devices well beyond the two-year mark.

For example, older flagships like the Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge were recently updated with the latest security patches from Google and Samsung.

While all eyes are currently on Samsung and its Android Oreo plans, the company will launch a new version of Nougat before it arrives.

Samsung’s next flagship, the new Galaxy Note 8, will not run Android Oreo out of the box. However, it will run a version of Android that is not available on current Galaxy devices.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will run Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box and will be the first Galaxy device to do so. The device will also run Samsung Experience, a new version of Samsung’s user interface.

It is unclear whether Samsung will expand the Android 7.1.1 update to other Galaxy devices or keep it exclusive to the Galaxy Note 8.
