Galaxy S8 Malaysia Oreo

Samsung has begun rolling out its latest Android 8.0 Oreo update for Malaysian Galaxy S8/S8+ units. This also brings their latest Samsung Experience 9.0 which brings a couple of new UI improvements.

Jumping from Android 7.0 to Android 8.0, you can expect improved notifications and it also supports notification badges on the app icons. Performance is said to have improved as background services are limited for better battery life. There are also new edge screen features along with new clock styles for the always-on display.

The update also brings its Dual Messenger feature to the Galaxy S8/S8+ which allows you to install two copies of WhatsApp and other instant messaging apps on a single device. Other minor improvements include high-quality audio codec support for Bluetooth streaming and the ability to manage all your username and passwords using Samsung Pass.

Finally, you can go directly to the clock app when you tap on the default clock on the digital clock widget. You can check out the full changelog below:

If you haven’t received any notifications yet, you can download manually by going into Settings and tap on “Software update” at the bottom of the page. On our Galaxy S8+, the update weighs 1344MB in size so we recommend downloading the update via a WiFi connection. It is also recommended that you perform a backup before you proceed with this major update.

When Bangladesh will get android Oreo for galaxy S8 exynos


Well Samsung always push updates for their flasgships devices. But for me it is always going to be pixle of Android one phones. I have received the update on Android one device before any other device out there


Got mine this evening


Auto rotate stopped working after update.


When will Note 8 get the Oreo update in Malaysia?


Done updated my S8+ to Oreo. Buttery smooth

Well, got the update last night but some features still crashing like the live messaging though




Got it. nice…so smooth.

Moe Zoey

Why my s8+ dosnt get any notification update


Not yet get any info for update


Yesterday I already downloaded Oreo and meanwhile pending for backup, today the Oreo update had been retracted. I didn’t know what Samsung was up to but I had a feeling that the Oreo for S8/S8+ was a faulty one.

    Same like me, i push later because don’t want to use data. Now back home use wi-fi, no update, walau…..

      Amirul aqim

      Haha regret it . So jealous of them who had upgraded it




Something is technically faultu with Samsung. How come the Oreo update was retracted for update. I already had installed the Oreo and waited for backup completion but to my surprise Samsung once again had failed their customers. They didn’t even put any notice why the Oreo was retracted.


Updated mine. Samsung pass not working, Keeps saying temporary not available try again later.

Although update seems pretty smooth.


Latest news as predicted because Samsung really has halted it Oreo update without specific reason.
