The second phase of the Samsung Galaxy Beta program seems to be going live right now. The first Android 8.0 Oreo beta is rolling out for Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ users in India.

When Samsung announced the Galaxy Beta program for Oreo in October, the first countries to get the update were US, UK, and South Korea. Next in line to receive the update would be Germany, Spain, France, Poland, China, and India.

Since users in India have started to receive the Oreo beta update, that probably means that Samsung has started the second stage rollout. Others living in Germany and Poland have also received the Oreo beta update. Users in other countries mentioned in the list haven’t reported seeing the update, but it should arrive very soon.
