Samsung Experience 9.0 Beta brings a test build of Oreo to Galaxy S8 and S8+ users


One of the biggest problems with Android phones is the lack of updates from manufacturers. If you buy a Google phone like the new Pixel 2, you’re guaranteed software and security updates for a whopping three years. But with most other companies, you’re lucky to get a security update every few months.

Though Samsung has not released the Android Oreo update for its devices, it’s working hard on the software. The company has announced the new Samsung Experience 9.0 Beta, which is a test version of Oreo and the new Samsung UI for the Galaxy S8 and S8+.

Starting today, owners of the devices in South Korea, the US, and the UK can download this beta firmware and play with Oreo before it’s released to the public. For US folk, only T-Mobile, Sprint, or unlocked devices apply. Sorry AT&T and Verizon customers. Of course, you should also provide Samsung with valuable feedback to make sure that the beta updates keep coming in the future.
