Your Galaxy S8 Oreo Update Could Be Weeks Away

Your Galaxy S8 Oreo Update Could Be Weeks Away

You might've heard. Samsung is gunning for a Galaxy S8 Android Oreo release in January. That's great news, but it doesn't mean every single Galaxy S8 owner in the United States and around the world will get the update this month.

While companies like HTC and OnePlus have already released Android 8.0 Oreo upgrades, Samsung is still lagging behind. That will change soon, but only for some Galaxy S8 users. 

It typically takes several weeks for Samsung and its carrier partners to deploy major Android software updates. 

Samsung's tested Android 8.0 Oreo, but carriers like T-Mobile will still need to poke and prod the software for bugs and other issues. There's also a good chance carriers will add their own tweaks to the software. This takes time. 

Some carriers are great about keeping their customers informed. Others keep their customers in the dark for weeks while they test for issues. 

If you don't own a Galaxy S8 in a major market on a popular or communicative carrier, you might have a long road ahead of you. Don't be surprised if some Galaxy S8 models get the Oreo update in March or later.

If you can't wait until early 2021 to buy your next phone, you'll want to move on. 

We won't get a specific release date for several months, but assuming the coronavirus outbreak doesn't delay Samsung's plans, you can count on a launch in the same window the company always uses to launch its new Galaxy S. 

The Galaxy S series typically launches in the first quarter (these days the company uses the month of February) and that's what you can expect in 2021.

Don't expect a surprise launch in late 2020. If anything, we could see delays.
