Samsung Galaxy S8 Android 8.0 Oreo Beta Program Launch Imminent

Last year, the Galaxy Note 7 was on fire; this year the Galaxy Note 8 is freezing, metaphorically speaking of course.

According to the reports coming from the official Samsung forums, some Galaxy Note 8 units are freezing when users open the contacts app. It would also make upgrading a batch of phones to Android Oreo 8.0 easier, if a company should choose to do so.

Samsung is getting ready to refresh the A series with a new Galaxy A 2018 family consisting of the Galaxy A7 2018, Galaxy A5 2018 and Galaxy A3 2018. Without further ado, here's how you can join. You will need to register for or sign-in to your Samsung account in order to complete this process.

First, you're going to have to download the 'Samsung+' app from the Galaxy Apps Store or the Play Store.

T-Mobile's Galaxy Note 8 BOGO deal may be over, but T-Mo is now running a new deal on Samsung's flagship Android smartphone. You can also try to sign up if you've got an unlocked version but purchased it through AT&T or Verizon. This is unlikely to change as Samsung's usual strategy for providing major OS updates rarely includes lower-end budget-friendly models, so the device will probably remain in the Nougat category throughout the remainder of its lifetime.

According to the leak, Samsung will open up its Android 8.0 beta for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus on November 2 at 11 a.m. It provides them access to a software version control system that enables them to update all devices in the enterprise at the same time.

One thing to remember, is that this is beta software, and it will have bugs and issues. The company's also updated its End User Licensing Agreement (EULA) and Galaxy Beta Program FAQ with details about the unannounced Android 8.0 beta.
