Samsung Galaxy: Android 8.0 Oreo coming soon | LIST

A full list of Samsung Galaxy smartphones and tablets that will receive the ad update Android 8.0 Oreo appeared online over the weekend. The leak was shared by a well-known Chinese industry employee.

The devices listed below have been scheduled for a major OS update starting this Friday, the source reported, implying that a number of other models could receive Samsung’s build of Android 8.0 Oreo in the future.

The list itself doesn’t contain many surprises, at least in terms of Samsung’s high-end smartphones; the Korean manufacturer usually releases two major OS updates for its premium offerings and will apparently continue to use this strategy in the future, with the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus ready for Android 8.0 Oreo.

The same update is also planned for the Galaxy Note line, with the Galaxy Note 5 being the oldest S Pen equipped phablet. While Galaxy Note 7 Fan Edition is a rather niche device, it is not excluded from Samsung’s Oreo roadmap.

Galaxy A-branded phones released later this year will receive the next major OS update, as will the Galaxy A8 (2016) and Galaxy A9 Pro (2016). The upcoming Galaxy A (2018) line will not launch with Oreo, but is expected to be updated in the first few months of its release early next year. All Galaxy C series phones released in the last 18 months will also be upgraded to Oreo, along with all versions of the Galaxy J7 (2016) Galaxy J7 (2017).
