It’s common knowledge that Samsung is one of the most important smartphone manufacturers in the world. Unfortunately, the company’s good name is ruined by their slow software updating process.
Now, it seems that they have finally made the first steps towards introducing Android Oreo updates for some of the devices released last year and in 2016. On the list appear popular names like Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, but the process could be extended to other previous models as well.
What are the devices that will receive updates
Now that Samsung has finished with the S8 series and Note 8, their attention is heading towards bringing Android 8.0 Oreo updates on other smartphones. Up until this point, nothing is 100% sure, but the S7 and S7 Edge devices are considered the most suitable candidates for the update.
Next to them, the developer is planning to provide new software features to other smartphones previously released.
According to reports issued by specialists, Galaxy A5 and A3 released in 2017, as well as Galaxy Tab S3 are waiting for Android 8.0 Oreo updates. The report is supported by the fact that all the devices were presented running with Android 8.0 on WiFi Alliance’s website.
However, we should not forget that software updates made by Samsung are a little bit strange. Before the latest announcement, other rumors said that the company is planning to bring Android Oreo update to Galaxy S6, S6 edge, S6 edge+ and Note 5, by their plans were not concluded and it seems that the S6 series will not get any updated software.
Letting the expected Android updates aside, let’s not forget that Samsung has made a good impression with the new Galaxy S9 series. S9 and S9+ are very appreciated because their camera has amazing features. Also, the company is already testing the Note 9 and maybe they shouldn’t, considering the fact that Note 8 is still waiting for updates in many regions.
