Samsung is the only top-tier brand which is yet to release Android 8.0 Oreo to its smartphones. The South Korean brand did not even release any list of smartphones which will receive the update. As per a new leaked Samsung Oreo Beta firmware for the Galaxy Note 8, over 26 Samsung smartphones will receive the Oreo update sooner or later. Folks at xda have revealed the list of smartphones based on the xml files present on the Note 8 beta firmware. The xml files are present with the codenames of Samsung smartphones, but thankfully, the publication revealed the actual names of the smartphones too.

All the major Samsung smartphones such as Samsung Galaxy S8, S8+, Note 8 and S8 Active will receive the update. Alongside these models, Samsung will release the Oreo update to the newly released smartphones- the Galaxy A8 (2018), the Galaxy A8+ (2018).

The Samsung Galaxy C7 Pro, Galaxy C9 Pro, Galaxy J5 Pro, Galaxy J7 Pro, Galaxy S7 Active are the smartphones which may receive the update too, but the xml files of these phones were not present on the Note 8 beta firmware. As usual, the rollout of the update is unknown at the moment. But Samsung said that the Galaxy S8 and S8+ would receive the update in the next couple of weeks, followed by the Galaxy Note 8. Already, the company has ended the beta program for the S8 and S8+, so expect the update anytime soon.
