Samsung cares about this year's flagship. Soon it is supposed to start updating devices to Android Oreo, which will change not only the interface but the speed of devices operation. This is a big surprise because many handsets have not yet received Android 7.
New versions of the system will most likely be marked G955FXXU1BQI1 for Galaxy S8 and G950FXXU1BQI1 for Galaxy S8 +. Although Samsung does not announce release dates, it's possible that the first releases will be available to users very soon. A similar strategy was applied to the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge. Device owners have tested the beta version of Android Nougat several months before the official update. The owners of cheaper equipment from the Koreans may be disappointed. So far, there is no information when and if an update is available at all, and many of them are still running on the next versions of Android 6. The first thing that should come to fruition is to have a system startup time, even twice shorter than in Nougat. Tests were performed on Google Pixel. It also improves the way to optimize the system and background applications, which should also significantly affect the smooth operation of the device. The function that I like is auto-completion of logins and passwords. Also a "picture in the picture" is to be a novelty. Using two applications is easier and more enjoyable than using screen sharing. Windows are to be overlapped and operate independently. I hope to use this feature you will not need to have compatible applications just like with the above screen sharing.
New way to manage notifications
I also like the new notification feature. Above the application icon will appear a dot, which you can expand. A cloud with notification preview and a few useful functions will open up. The manufacturer has announced that Oreo will also improve battery performance with the new power management tool. This especially applies to programs running in the background. Emoji fans should not complain because there will be nearly 60 new icons. This is the official news officially confirmed by the Android manufacturer, though not necessarily all and in this form will appear on Samsung devices. Unfortunately, I have not found any information about how much new version of the system will burden the smartphone. We have become accustomed to the fact that more and more Android devices are becoming more and more expensive, and maybe that is why the manufacturer is holding out to release updates for weaker devices? Be sure to know when you get an update to your Android Oreo. Source: Sammobile / Google
