Great news for Samsung Galaxy S8 users, your phone is set to receive a major update


Samsung Galaxy S8 handsets are about to receive a massive software update, according to reports.

Google’s latest Android Oreo will reportedly be pushed out to Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ smartphones early next year.

A report by SamMobile says the update should be ready by late January 2018 and should be rolled out users by February at the latest.

Up until now, only beta versions of Android Oreo had been available to a limited number of Galaxy S8 users.

When the new update does arrive, it will bring with it a number of new features including improved battery life and multi tasking and support for Samsung Pay.

The news comes after it was revealed this week that only 0.5 percent of devices are running Oreo.

Android Marshmallow, which was released in 2015 leads the way running on 29.7 percent of active Android devices, followed by Android Lollipop, released in 2014, with 26.3 percent and 2016’s Android Nougat with 23.3 percent.

The figures are a reflection of Google’s age old problem of Android fragmentation, something which it has it is actively trying to tackle.
