Samsung launched a beta program for the Galaxy S8 Oreo update last year. It has released several beta firmware since then and while the company is yet to confirm when the final public release is going to take place, it has revealed that the Galaxy S8 Oreo update is going to be released a day early for those who participated in the beta program.

Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ owners have long been waiting for the Android 8.0 Oreo update to arrive. They’re going to be the first Samsung smartphones to receive the Oreo update. Fans are getting anxious because until these handsets don’t receive the update, Samsung won’t release Oreo for any other compatible handset in its lineup.

The Galaxy S8 Oreo update beta program has ended already and while the update was expected to be released to the public before the end of January, that hasn’t happened as yet. There has been no update from Samsung regarding the public release date of Android 8.0 for the Galaxy S8.

According to a notice posted in the Samsung Members app for participants of the beta program, Samsung says that it will release the official Android 8.0 Oreo update for the Galaxy S8 one day early for those who participated in the program.

With January almost over now, one can only hope that Samsung will release Oreo for the Galaxy S8 sooner rather than later.
