As we reported earlier about the Samsung’s former flagship devices that’s the Galaxy S7 Edge and the regular Galaxy S7 being spotted with a Wifi Alliance certification recently, where both the devices were running on the latest Android Oreo 8.0. Now new information about the Android Oreo updates fuels the case, as a new page appeared on Fido(A Canadian Carrier) which states that both the flagships are in an Android Oreo 8.0 pending state and the update will arrive by May 2018 that is next month.
This means the Android Oreo 8.0 update is confirmed for both the devices and will start rolling out by next month. This should be the final stable Android Oreo update and not any beta testing version for the Galaxy S7 as this will prove to be too late for it. As Android P 9.0 is also around the corner.
Samsung’s Android Oreo 8.0 packs a lot of new stuff on both ends that’s under the hood performance changes as well as on the features side and runs on Samsung Experience 9.0 UX, which is a bit toned down version of Touch Wiz. You should expect better battery and performance optimization, enhanced UX design, auto-fill text fields within any browser, new icons and functions for the notification shade, etc.
Apart from the Android Oreo 8.0, it will also come packed with the latest May/April Security patch, and Samsung has already proven to be quite consistent when it comes to security patches; at least for its flagship devices.
