Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus gets the official Android Oreo update

The pages for the S6, S6 edge, S6 edge+, and Note 5 all say "Phase: Complete: Version 8.0 Oreo" and "T-Mobile and the device manufacturer have agreed to support a new software update". Will all the devices receive the Oreo update or just the T-mobile variants?

Samsung's 2015 flagship smartphones such as the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, and the Galaxy Note 5 are powered by the Exynos 7420 system-on-chip and are perfectly capable of running Android Oreo. Both the 2017 flagships received their Oreo updates only yesterday, but that's how it's always been with Samsung devices.

The update weighs in at 2.81 GB and bundles EMUI 8.0 along with Android 8 Oreo.

It can be said with certainty that flagship devices will receive a significant OS update at least once in their life cycle, but the same doesn't apply to older and non-flagship devices. However, T-Mobile has officially confirmed this on their official website.

However, Samsung will allow only one carrier to update these smartphones to Android 8.0 Oreo.

It's unclear at this time if other carriers in the US will follow in T-Mobile's footsteps, and there's also no word as to when Oreo will start to roll out to the above devices. The giant has already released four different types of Android Oreo's Beta update in the past. Surprisingly this is the month and we are seeing reports about Oreo update for Galaxy S Series devices. As usual, smartphone makers have taken a while to test and begin pushing out the update to their own users. So apparently, the Oreo update will be available for more Galaxy devices of the year 2015.

Meanwhile, the South Korean company hasn't yet announced anything officially in this regard.
