Samsung’s killed the Galaxy S8 Android Oreo replace – however why?
Android Oreo began rolling out to Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ handsets this week. But then, abruptly, it stopped. No one knew why, however now Samsung has answered formally.
Here’s what it stated: “Following a limited number of cases where Galaxy S8 and S8+ devices have rebooted unexpectedly with the Android 8.0 Oreo, we have temporarily stopped the rollout of the update. We are investigating the issue internally to ensure that the impact to the affected devices is minimized and the rollout of the update can resume as quickly as possible.”
Random reboots aren’t one thing to be taken evenly, so it’s excellent that Samsung took be aware of this and nixed the present construct. After the Galaxy Note 7 debacle, the corporate can’t manage to pay for to any extent further PR screw ups. Or handing out new telephones free of charge, after ones broke.
How lengthy will it take to mend this? Unknown. Will there be some other replace launched? I’d say so. But with Samsung, you by no means know. Android P continues to be a long way off, so there’s no probability of them skipping Android Oreo and transferring directly to Android P.
This manner Samsung will probably be running round-the-clock to mend this factor and get a running replace out between now and the release of Android P.
The subsequent logical query is will the Galaxy S8 get Android P? That may cross both technique to be fair. Once Android P lands, the Galaxy S8 will probably be moderately some distance into its unencumber cycle, and Samsung doesn’t have an excellent observe file with getting updates out, so there’s a distinct risk that Oreo may well be the ultimate right kind replace the Galaxy S8 will get.
I’m now not pronouncing this WILL occur, simply that this is a distinct risk. Having stated that, the Galaxy S7 is getting Oreo, so most likely Android P would be the Galaxy S8’s ultimate primary replace ahead of it is swallowed by means of Android fragmentation?
