Samsung-Android 8.0 O update list

And now let me tell you something. To be honest, the Samsung devices will surely get the Android 8.0 Oreo update quite around next year and I’m damn sure about this anyways.

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 O 8.0. The list is as follows:

  • New Notifications Behavior
  • Support for Picture-in-Picture Mode
  • New Emojis
  • Added Support for Adaptive Icons
  • Includes Project Treble (for faster boot time and quick system upgrades)
  • Improved WebView API.
  • Multiple Display Support
  • Improved Doze Mode

Let me just tell you that these are just a few improvements of Android O. It’s still in beta so there might be more features added to it quite soon before the official launch and some of them might also simply go away as well until Q3 of 2017.

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

We all know that Samsung has its own 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 O 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 O UPDATE

Samsung Galaxy S Series

This is the flagship series of the Samsung smartphones and Samsung will most probably get the Android O 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.

The company is trying to address the “bomb” issue and wants these smartphones to be in the league of the best flagship devices for this year with their upcoming Galaxy Note 8. We still wish you good luck Samsung.

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 kind of under-rated but the design of the smartphones in this series are 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 O update anyways.

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

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

Most people don’t get this series of smartphones and that’s why these are very very less likely to get the Android O 8.0 update. We can’t even guarantee these smartphones to get the update anyhow.

Now let’s take a bit of some time and sum up everything that we can expect so far about the Android 8.0 Oreo Update:
