Samsung will reportedly start releasing Android Oreo update to eligible smartphones in early 2018. The report is coming from a Turkish news website Güncel Miyiz which did not dive into details but mentioned a few important details regarding the update rollout plan.

It mentions that Samsung has already started to work on a “pilot model” for the update which will be arriving in the early part of the next year. While there is no mention of which devices will actually be getting the update, it is safe to assume that the Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+, and Galaxy Note 8 will be among the first ones to get the same.

The Android Oreo update will obviously bring many of the stock changes like the Night Mode but there will also be a few changes from Samsung’s end on its custom skin. The report states that there will be faster app load time on the next version. If this happens, it will surely be a welcome change for many users. It will be focusing on minimizing background activities to help boost the app load time.

Samsung is not the only major OEM working on Android Oreo. We have already heard that Nokia 8 Orea beta is here and Sony has even released the update for the Xperia XZ Premium.
