Samsung is releasing Android Oreo for the Galaxy S6 series and Note5

Share

Earlier Samsung has started the Android Oreo Beta programme for their Samsung Galaxy S8-series device, and now some new information is there which will make Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus users go insane. Along with Android Oreo, the update brings latest February 1 Security patch to the device which will protect it from prevailing vulnerabilities. However, some of these phones are more than two-and-a-half years old, which has led some to guess that the company would not roll out the Oreo update for them. We know for a fact that last year's Galaxy S7 Edge is confirmed to receive an Oreo update, as a user from Vietnam received it on his device a few days ago.

Samsung Galaxy S6 phones aren't the only 2015 Samsung devices lucky to be in line for Oreo update, we now have a confirmation for Galaxy Note 5 as well. This clearly means the T-Mobile networks have successfully tested out the Android Oreo update on these devices and they are running successfully on the devices. United States carrier had tipped this development on its official website.

Various sources are claiming that, the unlocked versions of the above mentioned devices will also receive the same Android 8.0 Oreo update officially via Samsung in the coming weeks.
