Samsung Galaxy S8 gets better with stable iteration of Android Oreo

Samsung Galaxy S8

Samsung has resumed the rollout of the Android Oreo build for the flagship Galaxy S8 series. After the initial release of Android Oreo, the company had to halt the rollout within one week due to unexpected rebooting of the device. The problem was first noticed by few users and then escalated to the product team, who halted the rollout until a fix is developed.

The Android Oreo update is currently being rolled out with software build version G950FXXU1CRB7 and G955XXU1CRB7 for the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ smartphones.

The patch measures 530.63MB if you have already installed Android Oreo update previously. Basically, the latest update is a software fix to resolve issues reported by users after the installation of the previously released build.

If you haven’t installed Android Oreo before, you will have to download and install nearly 1.5GB file. Before proceeding to download the update, you need to activate Wi-Fi and charge the device up to 100 percent to avoid interruption. You should also free up nearly 3GB of disk space. However, you need not have to worry if the storage capacity of the phone is 64GB because naturally there will be plenty of disk space.

As of this writing, the Android Oreo update is available in Germany via OTA. We expect the rollout of the update in other regions within the next few days. Even though the update is pushed via OTA, it will take 48 hours for the bits to reach your device depending upon the region.
