Galaxy S8 Oreo update still MIA but users should want it soon

Samsung isn’t the fastest when it comes to pushing out Android updates and even more so major ones like Android 8.0 Oreo. So when the OEM got the ball rolling with the Oreo Beta program for the Galaxy S8, there was reason for excitement among users. Three beta releases later, however, the light at the end of the tunnel is still nowhere to be seen and no one knows when the final version will be released. And, perhaps more worryingly, neither does Samsung.

This iPhone X clone has some odd origins

This iPhone X clone has some odd origins

The company is called Leagoo, and their business is copying the look and feel of popular smartphones. Leagoo took the opportunity this month to create a copy of the iPhone X, taking into consideration the notch at the top of the front display. The price of this device is almost certainly comparable to the rest of the phones the company has in stock: just over a couple hundred dollars (converted to USD.)

Samsung’s $400 trade-in deal is back: get a Note 8 or Galaxy S8

Samsung has brought back its $400 trade-in promotion, giving customers a way to get a substantial discount on the Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+, and the Galaxy Note 8 smartphones.

Galaxy S8 update broke fast charging for some users

If you have a Galaxy S8, you probably had an update appear in the recent past; maybe you're even still postponing it until a more convenient time. If that's the case, you may want to wait a while longer, as some users who did update are reporting that fast charging no longer works. This applies to both the Galaxy S8 and the larger S8+.

Galaxy S8 soon to come in Burgundy Red

Remember when red, or one of its many variations, was the new black? Well, it seems that Samsung does indeed remember. Though almost a year too late. Samsung has just announced that a Burgundy Red edition is coming out, not for the Galaxy Note 8 but for the Galaxy S8. Yes, the early 2017 flagship is getting a new color, just months before a new flagship is announced.

Galaxy S8 Active release date set for T-Mobile and Sprint

The Galaxy S8 Active is quite similar to its inactive brethren, coming with a high-end display, top-notch processor, and a set of nice cameras. This device is different from the Galaxy S8 in that its display is entirely flat. It's flat because this device, the Galaxy S8 Active, is all business - made to withstand the elements and drop from your pocket without instantly shattering into a million pieces.

Galaxy S8, S8+ Oreo beta launches with Experience 9.0 program

Galaxy S8, S8+ Oreo beta launches with Experience 9.0 program

The news that Galaxy S8 and S8+ owners have been waiting for has finally arrived, even if not everyone will get to enjoy it first. Samsung has just kicked off the beta program for its Samsung Experience 9.0 update, which, among other things, updates the phones to Android 8.0 Oreo. But while Samsung’s official release is naturally vague, beta testers have been far more generous in sharing details of what all owners can look forward to when the final update rolls out.

Galaxy S8 Oreo beta is just around the corner

Galaxy S8 Oreo beta is just around the corner

Samsung is arguably still one of the slowest OEMs to push out major Android updates (perhaps rivaled only by Lenovo). So when news of a beta program for the latest major Android version surfaces, there is no small amount of hubbub among Samsung users. Especially when that program could kick off this week. Such seems to be the case for the Galaxy S8 and S8+, which might soon begin its open beta program for Android Oreo. The one unsurprising caveat: it depends on where you are.

Galaxy S8 Active for T-Mobile Band 71 coming soon

Galaxy S8 Active for T-Mobile Band 71 coming soon

Carrier exclusivity no longer seems to be like what it was used to be. Never mind the fact that you can sometimes buy an unlocked model from the OEM itself, sometimes carrier exclusives are exclusive only for a limited time. That does seem to be the case for the Samsung Galaxy S8 Active, whose lineage used to be exclusive to AT&T. An FCC document, however, shows that the rugged flagship might be coming to T-Mobile and will even support its new boasted LTE band.
