FEATURES OF ANDROID O 8.0

Let me give you a quick glance at some of the important changes that you might see in Android Oreo 8.0. The list is as follows:

  • New Notifications Behavior

  • New Emojis
  • Added Support for Adaptive Icons

  • Improved WebView API.

NOTE: Samsung Devices Launched Before or in 2014 and 2015 are less likely to get the Android 8.0 Oreo Update. So better consider them out of the game already.

We all know that Samsung has its UI built right over on top of the Android system making them bring Samsung’s extra features related to the device. TouchWiz, when compared to its older versions, have been improved a lot.

So don’t think that it’s useless or dumb. Being a revamped UI, Samsung needs to get things done like studying and implementing the Android 8.0 Oreo update for a particular device in any series.

Note: This Android O Update list is based on company’s history in providing updates and device popularity/timeline.

LIST OF SAMSUNG DEVICES TO GET ANDROID 8.0 Oreo UPDATE

Samsung Galaxy S Series

This is the flagship series of the Samsung smartphones and Samsung will most probably get the Android Oreo update first for sure. Anyways here is the list.

Note – The availability of the update may vary from carrier to carrier if you are in the US.

Other than these, we cannot expect the Galaxy S5 or earlier devices in this series to get the updates. So try to put your broken heart back and move on and buy a new device if you have a Galaxy S5 or earlier smartphone.

Samsung Galaxy Note Series

Another flagship series from Samsung which is the Galaxy Note series is also the much more flagship range series as well. After the Galaxy S series, this is the series to get updates right after or next to them. But let’s take a look at the list then.

Samsung Galaxy A Series

“A series” is also kind of mid-range budget smartphones from Samsung but not all of them qualify for the Android Oreo update, though. Let’s take a look at them now.

  • Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017)(A720F)
  • Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017)(A520F)
  • Samsung Galaxy A9 and A9 Pro (2016)(SM-A9100)
  • Samsung Galaxy A8 (2016)(A810F, A810DS)
  • Samsung Galaxy A7 (2016)(A710F, A710DS)

This series is under-rated but the design of the smartphones in this series is just amazing, and I guess Samsung will be trying to update them at least.

Samsung Galaxy C Series

The Galaxy C series from Samsung includes smartphones ranging from a mid-budget to a high-budget. The smartphones in the “C-Series” are less likely to get the Android 8.0 Oreo update anyway.

New update: According to our sources, all latest C Series smartphones will get Android 8.0 Oreo update

  • Samsung Galaxy C7 and C7 Pro
  • Samsung Galaxy C5
  • Samsung C9 Pro

This series of smartphones does not sell in huge numbers, and that’s why these are very very less likely to get the Android Oreo 8.0 update. We can’t even guarantee these smartphones to get the update anyhow.
