Samsung starts rolling out Android Oreo update for the Galaxy S8/S8+

UPDATE: The Android Oreo update is now available for Samsung Malaysia units.

Finally, Samsung has started updating its current flagship smartphones with the very latest Android 8.0 Oreo update. Several Galaxy S8/S8+ users at selected countries have gotten their software update notification and it could be hitting Malaysian units very soon.

The update takes about 487MB in size and it carries the latest February 2018 security update. Apart from getting new features with Oreo, Samsung has made some UI tweaks as well. Here are some screenshots comparing Oreo vs Nougat from Sammobile:

In case you’re wondering, the latest Oreo update does not support Android’s Project Treble. This would allow faster and easier updates since it separates the vendor implementation from the Android OS framework. It’s available for devices with Android 8.0 and above, but its support is dependent on each respective manufacturer. There’s a chance that Samsung might introduce this feature for its upcoming Galaxy S9/S9+ model.

At the moment, the latest Oreo software update is being rolled out for Galaxy S8/S8+ units in France, Germany, India and Poland. There’s no word of its release timeline for Malaysian units but we are guessing that it should arrive before the Galaxy S9 is announced at end of this month. You can try checking for it manually under Settings > Software Update.

Internal Samsung update : New Android OS update targeted Thursday for Malaysia


Seems that it wont be that long for Malaysia. Vietnam already get the oreo update. Based on the records from Sammobile, Vietnam, Thailand and Malaysia will get updates on same schedule.


This is a positive feedback from reliable sources. At least Malaysian can feel ease because now everyone gets a glimpse and feel of new software platform.
