Samsung launched the Galaxy Beta Program for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ several weeks ago. It has released four Android 8.0 Oreo beta firmware since then for both handsets in the United States and the United Kingdom. The program was supposed to go live in additional markets in the second phase and it appears that the Galaxy Beta Program has now entered its second phase.

Samsung started rolling out the Android 8.0 Oreo beta for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ in India earlier today. A few hours later, the beta program also went live for users in Germany, Poland, and France.

All of these markets were believed to receive the beta in the second phase of the program. While there hasn’t been an official announcement from Samsung just yet, it’s clear that the Galaxy Beta Program is now being expanded to more markets.

It may only be a matter of time before the beta program makes its way to markets like China and Spain which are also believed to be on the list for the second phase.

Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ owners in the aforementioned markets can now try signing up for the beta through the Samsung Members app. The spots are limited so if they don’t hurry, they may have to wait until additional spots are made available.
