Hopefully for good this time.
Android Oreo’s availability for the Galaxy S8 has been, problematic. Samsung didn’t start issuing a public update until February 8 (more than five months after Oreo’s release), and then on February 14 it was stopped due to instances of phones randomly rebooting after upgrading to the new software.
Thankfully, users are now reporting that Samsung has finally resumed Oreo’s rollout. The new firmware version numbers are G950FXXU1CRB7 and G955XXU1CRB7, and if you already downloaded the first Oreo update earlier this month, the new software should weight in at a little more than 530MB.
Similar to last time, this update is being made available in Germany and will then expand to more countries over the coming days and weeks.
If you’ve got a Galaxy S8, have you received Oreo on your phone yet?
