Samsung Starts Rolling out Galaxy S8/ S8+ Stable Android Oreo Update
If you have a Samsung Galaxy s8/s8+ smartphone then I’m sure by this you haven’t got the stable update of Android Oreo. Well not to worry, Samsung has started rolling out the stable version of Android Oreo (8.0) to Galaxy S8/ S8+ users in Europe. This update follows the official rollout of Oreo Update for Galaxy Note 8 and it is expected to be made available to other Galaxy S8 users in the coming weeks.
As per the current reports, the update has a size of 487MB for the users who are currently on the Oreo beta build. However, the size will be significantly larger for the users making a switch from Android Nougat (7.0). The update adds a plethora of changes including the app notification badges, app icon shortcuts, edge screen improvements and more.
