Samsung’s always pretty slow with Android updates. And this kinda sucks for its users. Even more so since Samsung is one of the biggest phone makers on the planet. You’d think it’d have this aspect of its business down by now… but no.
Well, Android Oreo is now rolling out to Samsung Galaxy S8 handsets in Europe first, starting with Germany. It will hit unlocked handsets first, then network-branded units at a later date.
The update will bring with it plenty of bug fixes, optimisations, and new features. The update size will be 487MB. Android Oreo’s biggest new features are detailed below:
- 2x faster: Get started on your favorite tasks more quickly with 2x the boot speed when powering up*
- *boot time as measured on Google Pixel
- Background limits: Android Oreo helps minimize background activity in the apps you use least, it’s the superpower you can’t even see.
- Autofill: With your permission, Autofill remembers your logins to get you into your favorite apps at supersonic speed.
- Smart text selection: Android Oreo recognizes text when you tap or select, then recommends a next logical step via a suggested app.
- Picture-in-Picture: Allows you to see two apps at once, it’s like having super strength and laser vision.
- Notification Dots: Press the notification dots to quickly see what’s new, and easily clear them by swiping away.
- Android Instant Apps: Teleport directly into new apps right from your browser, no installation needed.
But what’s really set tongues wagging is the name of Samsung’s Android Oreo update – it’s officially called CRAP (G955XXU1CRAP). Guessing CRAP doesn’t mean anything in Korean.
Either way, Samsung’s CRAP update will be winging its way to Galaxy S8 handsets in Europe very soon, so, as always, keep your eyes peeled for an OTA update in the next week or so.
