Both carriers offer an update that does not deliver Android 7.1 or Android O, providing Android Pay support, various improvements to Bixby, as well as the monthly security patch instead.

Although Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ have been well received and have no major issues at first sight, the first Android 7.1-based update for them is not available yet. On the other hand, those who use them on T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless should be pleased to find out that a new OTA update is ready for their handsets.

The new software does not push Android 7.1 or Android O to the Galaxy S8/S8+ flagships. However, it brings Android Pay support, multiple enhancements to the Bixby personal assistant, as well as the monthly security patch for June. Sadly, the list of changes that target Bixby does not include voice support yet, offering Bixby Vision and Reminders.

Samsung managed to sell over 5 million Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ flagships so far. The display and main camera have been both praised for their quality, although some red tint problems were reported a while ago, being fixed promptly by Samsung via a software update. For now, Bixby still needs to take off in multiple markets, but everything is fine overall.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
