Samsung Galaxy Note 5 will get Android 8.0 Oreo update

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 will get Android 8.0 Oreo update

We haven't heard anything from T-Mobile or Samsung about these Oreo updates for these devices before, which makes these pages a bit of a surprise.

According to the support pages for the Galaxy S6, S6 Edge, S6 Edge+, and Note 5 listed on T-Mobile, a popular carrier in the U.S., it has been noted that Oreo updates for the phones are in development.

Samsung Galaxy S6, S6 edge, S6 edge+ and Note 5 will get Android Oreo update.

As of now, Samsung hasn't published an official statement detailing the list of devices due to receive the Android Oreo update, which means that owners of Samsung's 2015 flagship phones have been left in the dark. The update will initially be available for those who helped beta test the build, and eventually will be rolled out to all users of Samsung's Galaxy S8 flagships.

I've reached out to T-Mobile to ask about these pages and if these four Samsung devices will indeed be updated to Android Oreo. USA carrier had tipped this development on its official website.

Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia said he will raise the coalition's airstrike during closed consultations later Thursday in the U.N. The United States said Syrian pro-government forces initiated an attack on the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

However, Samsung will allow only one carrier to update these smartphones to Android 8.0 Oreo. The Indian release of EMUI 8.0 brings VoLTE support for Vodafone and Jio users along with the usual enhancements characteristic of EMUI and Android 8 Oreo.

The updates are arriving with a version number G950FXXU1CRAP for the Samsung Galaxy S8 while for the S8 Plus the software version is G955FXXU1CRAP.

Are any of you still rocking a Galaxy S6, S6 edge, S6 edge+, or Note? The Oreo rollout for the Galaxy S8 has already kicked off in Germany, and we should see this spread to other regions fairly soon.

Meanwhile, the South Korean company hasn't yet announced anything officially in this regard.
