When & Where to Check for Android 8.0
If you're excited about Android 8.0 Oreo and its changes you're probably wondering about the Galaxy S8 Android 8.0 Oreo release date and time.
If you came to the Galaxy S8 from an iPhone, you're used to getting software updates at a very precise time. Apple's iOS updates almost always arrive in and around 10AM Pacific during the week. Samsung's release protocol is a whole lot different.
It's difficult to predict exactly when your Galaxy S8 Android 8.0 Oreo update will arrive. Samsung's roll outs take place over several weeks (as opposed to a single day on iPhone) with many different release dates.
Samsung and its carrier partners typically don't announce release dates for each release so you'll need to be on your toes.
That said, we expect the first Galaxy S8 Android 8.0 Oreo updates to start rolling out in late January or early February at the latest.
Once the Galaxy S8 Android Oreo roll out begins, you'll want to occasionally check for the Oreo update via your Settings.
You'll also want to keep your eyes on carrier Android update schedules like Rogers Canada's because they'll shed light on potential release dates.
You should also keep an eye on Galaxy S8 update support pages (like this one at AT&T) because they'll be the first place to confirm a roll out.
