Samsung smartphones will get Android 8.0 Oreo update with fast app loading
Samsung plans to roll out the Android 8.0 Oreo update for its smartphones early next year. The update is expected to roll out first for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note8 smartphones.
Samsung plans to launch the Android 8.0 Oreo update for its smartphones in early 2018. Details of the Oreo update rollout came from an official Samsung Turkey news portal, XDA Developers reports. The portal also mentioned that work has begun on a pilot model for Android Orio with Samsung’s own customization and aims to launch the update early next year.
Google officially unveiled Android 8.0 Orio on August 21 and it is currently available for the Pixel and Nexus series. Among Google’s OEM partners, Sony is the first to launch an Android 8.0 Oreo powered smartphone. Japanese smartphone maker Xperia XZ has launched the Oreo update for premium users. However, for the 7-day period ending October 2, the operating system enjoys only a fraction of 0.2 percent of the Android dashboard.
HTC, OnePlus, Motorola and HMD Global have already announced plans to roll out Orio for their smartphones but have not offered any specific timeline. HMD has started beta testing of Orio Update in a branch of Global and OnePlus users. While Samsung has not made any specific offer about the Turkey update, it is expected to be available for the Galaxy Note8 and Galaxy S8 smartphones first. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. Samsung’s 2016 flagship smartphone Galaxy S7 is expected to offer the Oreo update.
In addition to the Oreo features introduced by Google, Samsung plans to make its phones even faster with the update. A statement from Samsung Turkey claimed that the Orio update on Samsung phones would “allow your apps to open faster,” indicating an improvement in app opening speed. Samsung smartphones should also have support for Orio features such as notification dots, picture-in-picture (PIP) mode, restrictions on background apps, autofill and predictive text selection. The post mentions ‘Night Mode’ for more warm colors, which may replace the existing blue light filter mode.
