Samsung isn’t precisely fast in terms of rolling out Android updates, and we unluckily don’t assume that to change extensively with the Android Oreo replace. Looking at Nougat, Samsung were given the primary updates out to the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge in China and the United Kingdom 143 days after Google launched Android 7.0. The replace took a grand total of 180 days to attain US seashores, landing first on T-Mobile, followed with the aid of AT&T the day after and Sprint days after that. Verizon hobbled throughout the end line more than one weeks later.
But what approximately the year before, For the Marshmallow replace, Verizon really were given there first, delivering Android 6.0 to the Galaxy Note 5 after 156 days. Carrier overall performance can range 12 months to year, but primarily based on these efforts, we can assume the primary replace to Android 8.0 for the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus to arrive between 5/6 months after it’s miles launched by Google around January or February 2018.
Korean S8 owners will in all likelihood get it as a minimum a month in advance than the USA, and of route, each Samsung and its carrier companions could both speed things up this year, or slow them down even similarly. But a 2017 Samsung Android 8.0 update appears not likely until Samsung has all at once determined that updates.
