Samsung launches Android 8.0 Oreo beta program for the Galaxy S8

Posted November 03, 2017

Once you have the Samsung+ app installed, you'll open and look for a Galaxy Beta Program option under a "Registration" menu towards the top of the app.

Having said that, interested users can download and test the Android 8.0 developer preview by enrolling to Samsung Member or Samsung+ application. Galaxy S8 owners can speed up the process of getting Oreo on their handsets, though, by signing up to Samsung's Galaxy Beta Programme.

There are plenty of reasons to signup for and try the Galaxy S8 Android Oreo beta if it's available in your country.

In the USA, only Sprint and T-Mobile customers as well as those with unlocked units are eligible. In South Korea, it includes devices on SKT, KT, LGU+, while in the United Kingdom it's open to those with unlocked models.

Here's what you need to know to get your hands on Samsung's Android 8.0 beta as soon as possible. For instance, split screen and Notification Dots, but the latter has only been renamed to App Badge icons.

Huawei is rolling out new software updates, in beta, for the Honor 9 and the Honor 8 Pro (aka Honor V9 in China). It also comes with a choice of biometric authentication methods and Samsung's defense-grade Knox security platform.

Sammobile has posted a full changelog. That can be found in both Galaxy Apps and Google Play stores.

How do I register for the Android 8.0 Oreo beta program?

There are a bunch of Nougat features that are still present in addition to the new Oreo features. Users also get purchase assurance that they can buy the same device model up to two years from availability, according to the release. The camera app also got a fresh redesign and the overall battery life is also improved.
