After long months of waiting, the owners of Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8 will soon receive a stable version of Android Oreo, the latest version of Google’s OS. Even more, Samsung announced that all the Samsung Galaxy S8s and Note 8s will get Android Oreo in 3 weeks.
Samsung canceled the Android Oreo update before
Samsung launched the Android Oreo update campaign some time ago but canceled as the update caused reboot glitches in S8s and Note 8s.

“We’re working with our Carriers to get Android Oreo out to ALL eligible Galaxy S8/S8 Plus and Note 8 devices within the next 2-3 weeks,” the same post said.
