If you own a newer Samsung Galaxy Tab tablet, now would be a good time to start preparing for your move to the Android 8.0 Oreo update.
Samsung’s Galaxy S8 Android 8.0 Oreo beta has ended which means the official Oreo roll out should begin soon. The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ will likely be first in line though the update will soon spread to other Galaxy phones and tablets.
Samsung is still holding back specifics, but some carriers are starting to talk about their plans for Android 8.0 Oreo. One, T-Mobile USA, has confirmed several updates including an Android 8.0 Oreo upgrade for the Galaxy Tab E 8.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab E 8 will get Android 8.0 Oreo and it’ll be joined by several other Galaxy tablet models including the Galaxy Tab S3.
The Galaxy Tab Android Oreo release will likely lag behind the release for popular flagships like the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8, but we’d expect the newest Galaxy Tab models to receive their upgrade in the first half of 2018.
With the Android 8.0 release date as close as ever, it’s important to start preparing yourself, and your Galaxy Tab tablet, for the update’s arrival. A little prep work ahead of its release could prevent major problems and headaches.
In this guide we’ll take you through the preparation process and outline some things to do before the Samsung Galaxy Tab Android Oreo release date for your device.
Become Familiar with Android 8.0 & Android 8.1
If you own a Galaxy Tab that's less than two years old, there's a good chance you'll get upgraded from Nougat to Oreo and it's important to get familiar with their differences ahead of the roll out.
Samsung hasn't released a Galaxy Tab beta and we aren't expecting one, but that doesn't mean you can't get familiar with Oreo's changes for your tablet ahead of time.
We highly recommend getting acquainted with the changes on board the Galaxy S8 Android Oreo update if you haven't done so already.
We expect many of these features to make it to the Galaxy Tab so make sure you look into the changes Samsung featured in the beta.
Samsung's working with Android 8.0, but there's always a chance the company pushes Android 8.1 (or some of its features) to Galaxy Tab users.
