Samsung Canada has released a roadmap for the rollout of Android Oreo. The S8 and S8+ will receive their updates on March 19, and the Note 8 about a week later. Users of other new Samsung devices will, of course, have to wait till much later in the year.

Android Oreo was released way back in August last year. You'd expect the biggest OEM in the world, Samsung, to have updated all of its devices by now—or even its flagships, at the very least—but that hasn't been the case, as users of the S8 and S8+ in a number of regions are still yet to receive the final, stable update to Android Oreo. 

The company has, in typical fashion, been coy over announcing the roadmap for the Oreo release, leaving us to source information from unofficial sources. That's all over now, though; Samsung Canada has released a roadmap that tells users within the region what to expect.

According to the announcement, the S8 and S8+ will receive the update to Oreo starting March 19, with the Note 8 to follow on March 28. The S7, S7 Edge, A5, and Tab S3 will receive their updates by spring or summer, while the GXcover4, A8, J3 Prime, Tab A8, Tab Active 2 and Tab A 10.1 will receive their tastes of Oreo goodness much later in the year. This should put the rumors of the S6 receiving Oreo to rest—it always sounded a tad outlandish, in any case.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
