When it comes regarding the official announcement of Android 8.0 Oreo, Samsung has remained for long. However, the tech giant has finally broken the silence as it has now officially commented regarding Android 8.0 Oreo through its Turkish news site. Although the update got originally rolled out in August but it is not commercially available to everyone. The announcement was officially made on 4th October, however, nobody seemed to have caught up with the story.
As per Güncel Miyiz (via XDA Developers), Samsung would begin deploying the Android 8.0 Oreo update at the ‘beginning of 2018’. Moreover, the firm has already began working on the ‘pilot model’ for the new operating system.
At present, there has been no word from the company as which devices would receive the update. However, one could safely assume that Samsung Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Edge would be among the few Samsung phones which will receive the Oreo update.

One of the reasons why Samsung announced this very news in Turkey rather than any other city is the fact that Turkey is receiving Samsung’s first update. Likewise, it is an indication that Android 8.0 Oreo update might first come to Turkey at the start of next year. Later, Samsung will start rolling out this update to other countries.
