The Samsung Galaxy S8 Android 8.0 Oreo update is out of beta and it’s rolling out to users across the globe. The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ are the first in line, but the Android Oreo 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.

In the United States, T-Mobile’s confirmed several updates including an Android 8.0 Oreo upgrade for the Samsung 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.

Galaxy Tab Android Oreo Release Date

We expect the Galaxy Tab Android Oreo release to lag behind roll outs 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.

According to Samsung Turkey, the Galaxy Tab S3 (9.7, LTE) will start getting Android Oreo sometime in May. According to Samsung Canada, Oreo support for the Galaxy Tab S3 will come in the spring/summer while support for the Tab A8, Tab Active 2, and Tab A 10.1 will arrive later in the year.

With the Galaxy Tab Android 8.0 release date getting closer, 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.

Start Prepping Right Now

Start Prepping Right Now

If you own a newer Galaxy Tab model, you should start preparing for your Android 8.0 Oreo upgrade. 

You don't need to spend hours prepping, we expect the first roll outs to start in April or May, but a little work here and there will help you avoid problems when the time comes.

Use this time to dig into your tablet's storage and delete any files you no longer need. This will help make room for the Android Oreo update (we expect it to be a hefty download). It could also speed up your Galaxy Tab in the process. 

As we push closer to the update's release, make sure you regularly back up your device's data. You'll want to make sure everything on your Galaxy Tab is backed up properly before you download Android Oreo. Most of your data should be backing up automatically.

Make sure you track down all of your logins before you install the Android Oreo update on your Galaxy tablet.  

The update could log you out of your apps and services so you'll want to have that information handy, especially if you rely on your tablet's apps and services to get you through a day at work or school.
