Samsung has begun rollout of 4th beta of its Oreo update for the Galaxy S8 and S8+ today. The Oreo Beta 4 is live in Europe already, for the model no. SM-G950F and SM-G955F, but we’re yet to see any evidence of it hitting the US, where too it should arrive in a matter of days.
The update come as software version ending with ZQL8, sized over 850MB, and does what it should do — fix bugs from previous beta rollout. And there were many issues with beta 3, so hopes are high with the 4th Oreo beta from Samsung, which hopefully is also the last beta rollout before stable release begin rolling out (expected in January 2018’s end, BTW).
The Galaxy S8 and S8+ devices are the only devices Samsung has officially released Oreo beta for, but these are not the only device to boast an official Android 8.0 build, as recently, an Oreo OTA leaked out for the Galaxy Note 8 too. Being a leak, the Note 8’s Android 8.0 Oreo update isn’t exactly an official rollout, but as this comes from Samsung’s own servers, it’s as good as official beta, and a good installation if you are a fan of all things hacks.
We expect Samsung to release Oreo update for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge too, but that could take some time, probably end of Q1 2018. While Samsung sets from other than Note and S series should see the Oreo OTA roll out sometime in Q2 and Q3 2018.
