Samsung Working On Android Oreo Update for Galaxy A8 and A8+

Samsung Working On Android Oreo Update for Galaxy A8 and A8+

Even though Samsung Galaxy A8 and A8+ (2018) are the latest upper-midrange phones launched by the Korean giant, they hit the shelves with Android Nougat on board. But now, right after Samsung started the roll out of the Android Oreo update on Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, we learned that the Seoul company is working on the update to Android 8.0 Oreo even for these handsets.

This report comes from Galaxyclub.nl, a known website from the Netherlands. According to the report, the Android 8.0 Oreo update on Samsung Galaxy A8 and A8 Plus (2018) carries the build numbers A530FXXU2BRDX and A520FXXU2ARD1, respectively. Sadly there are no official declarations about the update and reports did not suggest an exact roll out date. The update is expected to come in July or August.

Even though Samsung Galaxy A8 and A8+ (2018) were released with Android Nougat out of the box, Oreo update seems to be coming soon. In case you don’t know, the firmware will be customized with Samsung Experience 9.0 which will bring several new features and graphics improvements.
