Samsung resumes Android Oreo update for Galaxy S8 and S8+


Earlier this month, Samsung began rolling out the Android 8.0 Oreo update for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ in Germany. However, less than a week later Samsung pulled the update off the market, citing a “major problem” with the software.

Now, a little over a week after the update’s withdrawal, Samsung is ready to start updating Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ units again. As reported by SamMobile, SamsungĀ has started pushing out an over-the-air (OTA) update to both handsets, bringing Android 8.0 Oreo to the flagship devices again.

For folks who have already updated to Android Oreo with the previous software update, then the new software update will measure in at a little over 530MB. If you haven’t upgraded to Android Oreo yet, then the software will be a bit bigger in size.

The new firmware version for the Galaxy S8 is G950FXXU1CRB7. Meanwhile, the Galaxy S8+’s firmware version has been bumped up to G955XXU1CRB7.

According to the original report, Samsung is rolling out the update in Germany first, but it shouldn’t be too long before it starts making its way to devices in other markets.

Are you excited to get a working build of Android 8.0 Oreo on your Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+?
