The option to Android Oreo to your Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ may be rocky, as you would expect. It’s been nearly seven months considering that the devices released and users are yet to obtain a taste of Oreo. Yesterday, Samsung did announce the official Oreo release for your S8 and S8+ but promptly suspended it. Several users had already received the update, and they should remain unaffected from this fiasco. Samsung says they suspended the rollout because some devices were randomly rebooting following the update, on the other hand think the real reason is usually that the build version had CRAP right at the end (no, seriously, the build version was called G955F0XM1CRAP).
New build version, no changes otherwise
Samsung was making a new firmware version to the Galaxy S8 Android Oreo update and it is now rolling out firmware version G950FXXU1CRB7 and G955XXU1CRB7 for that Galaxy S8+ as well as the Galaxy S8+. Much like the previous update. The firmware update file is approximately over 530MB for individuals who took part in the Android 8.0 Oreo beta program. The file size will probably be considerably larger this sort of still running Nougat. The rollout has become resumed in Germany, and it is a a few time prior to when the update starts rolling out once again in other markets.
While we’re glad which the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ are finally finding a stable update, users are frustrated and understandably slow. People running carrier-locked versions in the devices need to wait a lot longer for your update, and by that point, Google will currently have revealed this year’s form of Android; Android P.
What makes matters worse is that often Galaxy Note 8 users ought to wait provided May 2018 to acquire a taste of Oreo. There’s no reason for the rollout to get as delayed because it is, considering the fact that smaller sized companies for instance HMD Global have were able to release Oreo for many their devices. Let’s not even go to non-flagship devices manufactured by Samsung. Yes, Samsung did promise Oreo for a variety of their phones, but judging by the span of time they popularized release Oreo for flagships, it would very well be another year prior to them getting the update.
