Samsung is finally rolling out a stable Android Oreo build to the Galaxy S8/S8+ after an end to the beta program. The update which has been reported in Germany was expected to arrive much earlier after beta testing ended fourteen days ago. This will be a phased rollout, as usual with European units getting OTAs in the next day or so. While other regions of the globe will follow soon enough.
The update first arrives for the beta testers with a weight of around 487 MB and build number G955XXU1CRAP for the Galaxy S8+ in Germany. It also comes with the February security patch. Beta testers in other markets should see the update soon as well. Testers can also check the update manually by navigating to the Settings » Software update menu. Once there, hit the Download updates manually option.
Android Oreo should refresh the Galaxy S8/S8+ with a boost in performance as well as a bevvy of awesome features like Notification Channels. Samsung has also introduced a complete new Experience UX with its own set of neat features. We’re sure we’ll be seeing a detailed account of them once the stable update starts hitting more users.
