Samsung Galaxy Android 8.0 Oreo Beta Start Date Rumored

Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ Android Oreo beta program to reportedly open next week, limited spots available

If the information shared in the following screenshot is to be believed, the South Korean company will launch an Oreo beta program for its Galaxy S8 flagships next week on October 31. As far as new features go, we expect some goodies like the new notification dots to either replace Samsung's badges or at least give you the option to switch to them, power consumption optimizations, picture-in-picture, and lots of other tiny updates that improve overall device workflow. A less likely to happen rumor is that Samsung will release the two variants in January 2018.

According to GSMArena, there will be 7500 spots for each device and only T-Mobile and Sprint users will be allowed to enroll for this Android Oreo Beta update with respect to the above screenshot. Those versions are G950FXXE1ZQI7 and G955FXXU1ZQI7.

The Samsung Galaxy S7 Android Nougat beta launched in November (November 9th) and stretched into late December ahead of the widespread release in early 2017.

"We will be giving away a free Gear VR unit with every purchase of the Galaxy Note 8 smartphone at the Galaxy Studio from Oct 27-29", he told reporters after the opening of the studio by Samsung Malaysia Electronics President, Lee Sang Hoon.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2017) is nearly ready to make its debut in the US.

After reports of combustion of Galaxy Note 7 batteries past year, Samsung had to scrap all the phablet sets which cost them $5.4 billion in operating profit.

When put in Kids Mode, the tablet provides access to partner content including from LEGO, such as LEGO Batman app and LEGO NINJAGO.

With the Oreo update, Samsung phones are going to get a wide range of new features.
