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.
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.
