Samsung finally releases official roadmap for Oreo release
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.
