Galaxy S8 Finally Gets Oreo Update
After delaying it for several weeks, Samsung has finally rolled out the Oreo update to Galaxy S8 devices.

(CCM) — Samsung started testing Oreo beta for its flagship phones, the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, back in November. The final and stable version was initially scheduled to arrive by Jan. 15, 2018, but Samsung struggled to keep up with the timeline. However, today the company has finally started rolling out the update.

Several Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ users have started reporting that they are receiving the official update on their devices. It's worth noting that the update rollout has kicked off in Europe, with Dutch and German users constituting a major chunk of the reports. The update will also first reach users who were part of Samsung S8 and S8+ Oreo beta program.

The new Oreo update brings a slew of new features to the devices, including Samsung's Experience 9.0 UI and a security patch. It also brings new Always On Display options and adds Dual Messenger to the interface, allowing users to run two accounts simultaneously.
