Orea

 


Google's Senior Vice President of Android and Chrome, Sundar Pichai, posted a video on Google+ today that shows the casting for Android L Name which is "Android Lollipop"... Along with the video he said "maybe next next next time Oreo?".

 

 

We think he Hints that the "Next Next Next" version of android, which is Android "O", ´╗┐will have the Name Oreo. We all love Oreo cookies (We know we do). So we got Android v6.4 name before we even get the final 5.0 version... lol.

What do you think about the Android "M" and "N" versions Names ?!

Lo and Behold! Android 8.0 is here and unsurprisingly, it has been named Oreo; the name that everybody thought it would carry from day one. Those rooting for Oatmeal Cookie will have to be disappointed because Nabisco did one over you all apparently... Now to get to the useful stuff, here is a list of Samsung smartphones which will be getting the Android Oreo update for sure. Keep in mind that list can and will expand in the future as more reports come in and Samsung makes things official, but all smartphones on this list right here are almost 100% assured to get a piece of Oreo in the future.

·        Galaxy Note 8

·        Galaxy S8+

·        Galaxy S8

·        Galaxy S7 Edge

·        Galaxy S7

·        Galaxy Tab S3

·        Galaxy Note 7 Fan Edition

·        Galaxy A5 (2017)

·        Galaxy A7 (2017)


The Galaxy Note 5 and the entire S6 series are also rumored to qualify for the update but that's unsure at this moment.


If you were expecting a timeline then we must disappoint you because it's way too early for that. Head over to our firmware section to find all the latest available updates for your Samsung smartphones and tablets.

Although even the Galaxy S8 and the S8+ have not had a taste of Android Nougat 7.1.1 yet, thanks to The Android Soul we have a Pretty Comprehensive, but speculative list of Samsung devices that may or may not get the elusive Android 8.0 Oreo update officially. Make no mistake, this is a list built on speculations and educated guesswork, but as far as I can tell, we can expect this list to be at least 80% - 90% correct. Take a look below and see if your device may get the OTA update, when released. If not, it might be a good idea to change to a more recent phone!

The Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy Note 8 are the current kings of Samsung's smartphone lineup, so it's no surprise that Samsung is already working towards getting the latest version of Android ready for these smartphones. However, it seems like the Oreo update will arrive on the Galaxy S8 series sooner than Nougat 7.0 did on the S7 lineup. We have come to this conclusion after finding out that the Galaxy S8 was seen on Geekbench yesterday, testing out an Android Oreo powered firmware. It was spotted by GalaxyClub and was brought to mass attention by SamMobile.


You can check out the benchmark results in the screenshot above and apart from the OS version, nothing much seems to have changed though as the scores are pretty much par for the S8. After the Galaxy S8, S8+ and the Note 8, it is expected that Samsung will update the S7 lineup next.

Samsung did not release Android Nougat 7.1.1 for the Galaxy S8 and S8+ this year because both phones will be upgraded directly to Android 8.0 Oreo, as per reports. While the official Oreo update will still take a good bit of time before seeing release on any of the Samsung handsets, reports on the internet are indicating that the Beta Program will go live on October 31st in the US.


If you do not live in the United States, does it mean that you won't be able to become a part of Samsung's beta program? No, that's not the situation at all. As long as you own a S8 and S8+ in the UK, US, Canada and South Korea, the beta program will be accessible to you as well. If you own any of the two smartphones in China, India, Germany, Poland, France or Spain, you will still get the beta program, but much later, during the 2nd Phase. Download the Samsung Members App from the Play Store if you want to register for the Oreo beta program when it's announced. Remember that all this information is likely true, but none of it is official yet.

It always feels good to know that Samsung has not forgotten its older handsets and that would without doubt be the case if this little rumor turns out to be true. The rumor in question indicates that Samsung might be planning to extend the Android 8.0 Oreo to the Galaxy S6 line-up. That would indeed be quite surprising given that the handset is now almost three years old at this point!


The rumor originated after a Reddit user initiated a conversation with a Samsung Rep which resulted in the representative telling the user that his Galaxy S6 will be updated to Android Oreo! Take a look at the screenshots yourselves to know what we are talking about here. The most logical explanation to this would be that it was a mistake from the side of the representative and little else, but if it does turn out to be true, nobody would really mind! Besides, if you go through the conversation, it does look like the Samsung Rep is pretty confident about the information.

Before you get all excited, let us tell you that it's not an official update that we are talking about and not even an official beta version. The version of Android 8.0 Oreo which we are discussing here is unfortunately, unfinished and will almost certainly make your experience a very buggy one, should you choose to flash it.


The ROM in question was leaked on Reddit by someone with the username mweinbach and it's an expectedly hefty download of 1.4GB. Post the download, you should be able to use the phone, albeit with a lot of limitations. In spite of all its bugs, one cannot deny that it is most certainly a chance to test Oreo before everyone else for Galaxy Note 8 owners.


Before you decide to proceed with the download, take note of the following points, alongside the many bugs.


·         Your device will fail the SafetyNet check

·         Android Pay, Samsung Pay etc. won't work

·         Play Store will constantly show your device as unverified

·         There is no Project Treble to be found here



Check out the video above to get an idea of what to expect from this one.

Just as always, Samsung had started rolling out beta updates of the latest Android 8.0 Oreo OS to select devices and users who signed up for the Galaxy Beta Program a few months back, but that time is about to come to an end now, as the fifth and very likely, the final beta update is out now. The OTA update comes in at a fairly large but expected size of 613MB and The Android Soul reports the firmware version to be ZQLE.


While it most probably marks the end of the Oreo beta updates, there is no doubt that it's good news. This basically means that the official and final version of the latest Android OS is about to make its appearance via OTA on various devices now. Unfortunately, if you are in India, you have probably only started receiving the second beta update.

It was just days earlier that the Galaxy S8 and S8+ was up on Wi-Fi Alliance for certification purposes while running Android 8.0 Oreo and today we have another report that indicates an Android Oreo powered stable firmware update is just around the corner for the two devices. In fact, this latest report gives us hope that Samsung could start pushing the update much sooner, that is on or after January 15.


Keep in mind that this speculation was born out of a statement made by Samsung in one of its official notices where it stated the following, "Also please note, Beta Programe will end on Monday, January 15, 2018." While that isn't a confirmation that Samsung will start rolling out the OS upgrade on January 15, it would be surprising if the company doesn't start doing so by the end of the third week of January. Nevertheless, depending what your geographic location is and which career you are on, the update could be delayed further. We will find out soon enough.

Before you start looking for the update, let us tell you that they are not out yet. In fact, there is no guarantee at this moment as to when these two devices will be getting the OS upgrade on T-Mobile. Nevertheless, it's still good news that T-Mobile has officially confirmed the fact that the much awaited Oreo update is indeed coming to the Galaxy J7 Prime and the Tab E (8-inch) on T-Mobile.


This fact was made official when T-Mobile decided to add the names of these two devices on their website as being in line for the Oreo update via OTA. Given that both the Galaxy J7 Prime and the Galaxy Tab E are budget devices, this news is both somewhat unexpected and pleasant at the same time. If you have any of the devices without a carrier contract, it is unclear whether you will be getting the Android Oreo 8.0 update before or after the T-Mobile versions.

It has finally started; Samsung is now rolling out the final and official Android 8.0 Oreo powered firmware for the Galaxy S8 and S8+ in Germany. Of course, it's the users who signed up for the beta firmware that are actually getting the OTA update at the moment, but others will soon follow. If you are running the beta already, the update size should be in the vicinity of 500MB, depending on where you are located and which version of the beta you have running on your S8 or S8+.


In Germany, the firmware which is being rolled out is version G955XXU1CRAP for the S8+ and it comes in at an expected size of 487MB. Keep in mind that the same update will be much larger if you are not a beta tester. It should only be a few hours from now, before you start seeing the Oreo package waiting for you (provided you are in Germany), even if you are not a beta user. Let us know if you spot the Android 8.0 update in any other region.

It has now been confirmed; Samsung has indeed released the first Android 8.0 final build for the Galaxy S7 Edge in Vietnam and although it was a mistake, some users have indeed received it and they are the only ones in the entire world to be lucky enough to run the official Oreo firmware on their devices before the company even intended.



According to the user who reported this update, the firmware version on the update is G935FXXU2ERB2 and it also updates the UI to Samsung Experience v9.0. If you are wondering if this is false news or not, do check the screenshots. In case you happen to be one of the unlucky millions who did not receive the OS upgrade yet, rest assured that you will, but not anytime soon. According to SamMobile, the update could be coming in around two months' time, which seems logical, given the fact that Samsung will update the S8, S8+ and the Note 8 first.

You have probably already heard that Samsung has started to push out the Android Oreo 8.0 update to various sections of the globe for the Galaxy S8 and S8+, but at this moment we are not sure about all the areas that are getting the updates. As per reports from various sources and websites, India, France and Poland are the regions that are getting the update as of now, but if you can see the update for your phone and you reside in some other area, do let us know about that in the comments.


A point to keep in mind is that the update is only going live for the users that had signed up for the Galaxy Beta program on their devices. If you didn't, you will have to wait for a few more days before the same becomes available for you, in a much larger package. As far as this OTA update is concerned though, it comes in with firmware version G950FXXU1CRAP and G955FXXU1CRAP for the Galaxy S8 and S8+ respectively.

It has been a few days now since Samsung first began updating the Galaxy S8 and S8+ with the final Android 8.0 Oreo version in India, Poland and France, but those updates were only reserved for the Galaxy Beta users. As expected though, the same update has now also started to roll out for the regular users who did not sign up for the Beta program.


This time the list is quite expansive as SamMobile earlier confirmed the fact that the update is seeing release in India, UAE, Turkey, Belgium Norway and Germany. This isn't necessarily a complete list though, because it is perfectly possible for you to receive Android 8.0 Oreo even if your region was not mentioned here. In fact, by the time you are reading this, we are pretty sure that a few other countries are also seeing the update rolled out to S8 and S8+ users. Just in case you are wondering, the firmware version remains G950FXXU1CRAP/G955FXXU1CRAP for the Galaxy S8/S8+, just as it was for the beta testers.

Although a lot of users (including yours truly) has already received, downloaded and updated their devices via OTA, Samsung has officially stopped rolling out the Android Oreo 8.0 updates for the Galaxy S8 and S8+. If you are wondering why they have done so, we actually have an explanation from the OEM, thanks to a direct query by SamMobile. Apparently, some devices were experiencing an automatic and sudden reboot issue, post the update. You will find the official statement below.


"Following a limited number of cases where Galaxy S8 and S8+ devices have rebooted unexpectedly with the Android 8.0 Oreo, we have temporarily stopped the rollout of the update. We are investigating the issue internally to ensure that the impact to the affected devices is minimized and the rollout of the update can resume as quickly as possible."


In spite of Samsung calling the number "limited," it was clearly big enough for the company to completely halt the updates for now, so do keep an eye on your device if you are already running Oreo on your S8 or S8+. Even if it does begin to show issues, we would not be too worried as Samsung will definitely be releasing a patch very soon to fix the issue on their flagship. In any case, it is a bit disappointing for us and embarrassing for the OEM to mess up an update that they had a long time and a number of beta testing months to perfect.
