Earlier this week Samsung started to roll out the Android Oreo update for their Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus update to everyone. This came after it was released to members of their beta program last week.
Yesterday we heard that Samsung had stopped the roll out of the update and that they were working on a new version of the software. Samsung has now confirmed that they have indeed stopped the update. The company has provided an explanation on why it was stopped, you can see this below.
“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.” said a Samsung spokesperson.
Samsung is now working on a new version of the Android 8.0 Oreo software for the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus. The update is expected to land some time soon, as soon as we get some more details on when it will be available we will let you guys know.
