Note 8 Freezing for Some Users, Samsung Promises Fix

Samsung Galaxy S8 with Android 8.0 Oreo

Starting today, owners of the devices in South Korea, the United States, and the UK can download this beta firmware and play with Oreo before it's released to the public.

There is no word as to when, or if, the beta program will be opened up to the Indian users.

The crucial question, of course, is when Samsung plans to roll out a final, stable version of Android Oreo for all Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus owners, because it took until January before Android Nougat reached Galaxy S7 and S7 edge users this year.

This is the first shot at Android Oreo for Galaxy S8 owners, but there are some limitations to be eligible for the program. In the United Kingdom, you only need an unlocked device.

Unveiled yesterday, the new Enterprise Edition of Samsung's Galaxy Note8 smartphone was created to balance business security and productivity needs with employee expectations for a consumer-friendly experience, the company said.

With Android 8.0 Oreo on the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+, you will get access to features like faster app startup, optimized battery life, PiP mode, Notification badges and much more.

Samsung's Experience 9.0 beta will give customers testing the preview version a chance to try out the new features in the UI.

Additionally, the Galaxy Note 8 Enterprise Edition runs Samsung Knox, the company's security and encryption platform. "The Galaxy Note8 Enterprise Edition is a recognition of this need".

We expect the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 to also get Android 8.0 Oreo beta update very soon. Well, the beta version at least, which Samsung is now rolling out to select devices in the form of Samsung Experience 9.0.
