The Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ are the ones to receive Android 8.0 Oreo beta update. A release date isn’t confirmed but it is said that very soon the firmware version for the update will be available. Galaxy S8 Oreo beta update is in the works and its beta is on the verge of rollout.
The first Oreo beta for Galaxy S8 comes with all new features and improvements. The beta update has the firmware version G950USQU1ZQJB with almost a very few changes in the UI. However, a lot of Oreo features are present, along with the Samsung extras. Not much is known about battery life, but Nougat features such as split screen are present. With the beta update, Samsung Experience UI (version is 9.0) is definitely better in terms of smoothness.
The touch latency is improved, the Notification Dots feature is renamed to App Badge icons and Adaptive Icons are there for rescue. Talking more about the update, it brings redesigned Settings, faster search and more. Now you can invoke Google Assistant with ‘OK Google’ while the device is charging. The App pairs feature from Note 8, the Camera app is slightly redesigned, and some small changes here and there are also made.
The UI is not changed but overall the Android 8.0 Oreo update for the Galaxy S8 and S8+ will surely impress its users. It is faster, has all the Oreo features, and there’s better RAM management as well.
Since the redditor had beta update only for about half a day, therefore not many changes could be seen. We’ll keep you updated with further updates.
