Carriers in the United States are gradually rolling out Android 8.0 Oreo for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. Verizon was the first major carrier in the country to release said update for last year’s flagships from Samsung with T-Mobile following suit a couple of days ago. Multiple reports have now surfaced online about Sprint’s roll out of Oreo for the aforementioned devices. The carrier is rolling out Android 8.0 Oreo for the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+.
Sprint has released firmware version G950USQU2CRB9 and G955USQU2CRB9 for the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ respectively. The update is rolling out over-the-air so it may be a while before it’s available for download in all regions across the country. The update file itself weighs in at just over 1.5GB which isn’t surprising seeing as how this is a major Android OS update.
Much like the updates that Verizon and T-Mobile have already rolled out for both devices, Sprint’s release brings Android version 8.0 and Samsung Experience 9.0. All of the bells and whistles from Oreo are included in this update as is the security patch for the month of February.
Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ owners on Sprint who have yet to receive the update shouldn’t expect to have to wait much longer. It’s only a matter of time before that much-awaited update notification pops up on their device. With Sprint rolling out this update, only AT&T is left, and we can expect the carrier to roll out this update on its network in the near future.
