Galaxy Note 8 sales hit 1 mn units in S Korea

Galaxy Note 8 sales hit 1 mn units in S Korea

Samsung Experience 9.0 Beta program, which is built on the Android Oreo OS has started rolling for select customers. The new update can be availed through "Samsung Experience 9.0" in the United States, the United Kingdom and South Korea. Since all three of the Samsung flagships are doing good, we have good news about the Android 8.0 Oreo update on the Galaxy S8 and the S8 Plus. While the Galaxy S8 gets the update, we can expect the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 to get updated very soon.

But, sadly, the Indian Galaxy S8, S8+ users are not among those select customers.

First, your Samsung Galaxy S8 or S8+ must be purchased from Sprint or T-Mobile, or at least have a SIM from these carriers in the USA. Alternatively, they can also enroll unlocked versions of the phone, but it must be carrying SIMs from the aforementioned carriers. Samsung said its monthly patches are created to mimic those on the PC side, where Microsoft and other companies offer up regular security updates to keep critical hardware secure.




Samsung Experience 9.0, the company's revamped and rebranded TouchWiz, is now offering a beta version of Android Oreo to all Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus owners based in the United States, UK, and South Korea, just more than two months after Google released the software to the public. This means that a lot of Chinese-speaking people are eager to have Bixby Voice on their devices, and also that there are a lot of Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+, and Galaxy Note 8.

Interestingly (read annoyingly) enough, the Galaxy Note 8 Enterprise Edition isn't much pricier than a typical Note 8 bought from Samsung.com, fetching $994.

With the beta program rolling out in the USA and the United Kingdom, we can expect it to come to India soon. Any major bugs will not be globally spread if a phased update is rolled out.
