Samsung is planning to launch the Android 8.0 Oreo beta program for the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus on Tuesday, October 31st, one industry insider said earlier today. The test itself will be held exclusively for users in the United States which isn’t to say that an equivalent program won’t be introduced in the United Kingdom as was the case last year with the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge, it’s just that this particular source had no info on that front.

There are also chances that Samsung Galaxy S7 will get the Oreo update alongside the S8 and Note 8. Apart from these phones, we are not sure, and neither is there any official statement if budget and mid-range phones by the company like — J series, A series, C series or any other will get Oreo sweetness or not.
Samsung has reportedly started working on the pilot model for Android Oreo and aims to release the update at the beginning of the New Year.
One division of Samsung recently confirmed that the next major iteration of Google’s operating system optimized for Galaxy mobile devices is set to launch in early 2018, so a late 2017 beta test would fit into that development timeline. Samsung already started updating some of its Android apps with Oreo support but has yet to share any news on a potential OS beta test in an official capacity.
