Unlocked Variants of the Galaxy S8 and S8+ Begins to Receive the Oreo Update in the US

5 April, 2018 Samsung Updates

While Samsung has already finished rolling out the Android 8.0 Oreo update in most regions across the world, the unfortunate users of the unlocked smartphone in the US had not yet received the same. The good news is that has changed now because multiple reports have confirmed that the unlocked Galaxy S8 and S8+ have finally started receiving the elusive update in the United States.

As it is the tradition in the country, the carrier versions always get the update before the unlocked variants, although, it should technically be the other way around. Clearly, this is more a business decision than anything else, but even then, it's a decision that users can do little about. Nevertheless, seeing that the update has arrived only after a short time since it was first being rolled out to the carrier variants, we would say it's an improvement over previous records. In case you own any of the two handsets, firmware version G950U1UEU2CRB9 (S8) or G955U1UEU2CRB9 (S8+) will be making its way onto your device anytime now, via OTA. Both updates should have a size of around 1.3GB roughly.
