Samsung Galaxy Note 5 will get Android 8.0 Oreo update

Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus gets the official Android Oreo update

Samsung is releasing Android Oreo for the Galaxy S6 series and Note5

The carrier's webpage further reads "T-Mobile and the device manufacturer have agreed to support a new software update", which is Oreo 8.0. New sources suggest that other Samsung devices of the year 2015, will also receive the same Android Oreo update in the coming days.

The largest smartphone manufacturer and the slowest software update introducer, Samsung is apparently introducing Android Oreo update to its nearly three years old devices.

The update weighs in at 2.81 GB and bundles EMUI 8.0 along with Android 8 Oreo. However, T-Mobile has officially confirmed this on their official website.

By now, it's been a long wait for owners of Samsung Galaxy flagship smartphones waiting to receive the Android Oreo update.

Xiaomi Mi 7 Key Specifications Revealed
While there is no official confirmation, the Mi 7 is expected to be officially in unveiled the month of March in China. Therefore, the chipset is expected to be the Snapdragon 845 SoC, the latest and greatest offering from Qualcomm.

If Oreo does indeed make its way to Samsung's 2015 flagships, it will be very impressive.

However, XDA Developers have noted that all these smartphones are powered by the Exynos 7420 system-on-chip and that they are powerful enough to run Android Oreo. However, the new Oreo update is now officially available for both, Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ smartphones. Along with Android Oreo, the update brings latest February 1 Security patch to the device which will protect it from prevailing vulnerabilities.

Furthermore, before the official availability of this Oreo update for Galaxy S8 phones, we have spotted a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge smartphone running on an Oreo update in Vietnam. However, some of these phones are more than two-and-a-half years old, which has led some to guess that the company would not roll out the Oreo update for them. Users can go into Settings Software Update Download updates manually to download and install the update.
