With the beta version of Samsung Galaxy S8 for Android, owners of other Galaxy phones and tablets begin to be curious about the company's plans for Android 8.0. Among them, Galaxy Note 5 users.
As we move towards December, Samsung has confirmed two Android 8.0 Oreo updates. One is for the Galaxy S8. The other? The Galaxy S8 +.
The Galaxy S8 update for Android Oreo is currently in beta for both devices and users from the United States, the United Kingdom and South Korea can move from Nougat to Oreo before the unannounced release date. 19659002] Samsung has not detailed the rest of its plan that has left owners of other Galaxy devices wondering what will happen in the future.
We have been doing everything possible to answer as many questions as we possibly can. We have gone into details about the Galaxy S8 update for Android Oreo and its release and we have also gone into the updates for the Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S6. Today we want to address the Galaxy Note 5 software.
Now that the device is more than two years old, the owners of Galaxy Note 5 want to know if they will update to Android 8.0 Oreo. They also want to know when the update could arrive and what will happen to the Galaxy Note 5 if Samsung can not deliver it.
In this guide we do our best to answer any questions you have about the Galaxy Note 5 update for Android Oreo. Here it goes.
Update Galaxy Note 5 for Android 7.1.1
Before we get to Android 8.0 Oreo, let's address a question we received about the update of Android Nougat on the Galaxy Note 5.
Following the release of the Nougat from Android 7.1.1 from Samsung Many Galaxy Note 5 users wonder if the device will get Android 7.1.1 or Android 7.1.2. Samsung has not confirmed, but neither seems likely at this point. Here is why.
Samsung is implementing Android 7.1.1 Nougat updates for Galaxy devices, but the devices that make the jump have moved from Android Marshmallow to Android 7.1.1 Nougat. The Galaxy Note 5 runs Android 7.0 Nougat.
The company may surprise you, but we expect you to spend most of your energy completing the Nougat deployment and starting with the launch of Android Oreo. Devices currently in Android 7.0 Nougat will likely remain on Android 7.0 until they get Android Oreo.
This could frustrate you, but remember that most of the changes in the Android 7.1.1 update are integrated into the Samsung version of Android 7.0. It is not a big problem.
Galaxy Note 5 Android Oreo Beta
Samsung has a Galaxy O8 Oreo Beta for Android 8.0, so, of course, we have received more questions about Oreo Betas Android 8.0 additional.
Samsung says there will be additional rounds of beta registrations, but it has not provided any information about times, regions or devices.
At this point, we expect the beta to be limited to the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 +. We would be surprised if Samsung launched one for the Galaxy Note 8 and we would be surprised if the company pushed one for the Galaxy Note 5.
Remember, the last two beta versions of Samsung, for Marshmallow and Nougat, were limited to the flagships Recent The beta version of Android Marshmallow was limited to certain Galaxy S6 models and the beta version of Nougat was limited to certain Galaxy S7 models.
Do not trust customer service representatives
Samsung usually keeps Galaxy devices updated with major Android software updates for two years before ending support. The Galaxy Note 5, like the Galaxy S6, started on Android Lollipop. Since then it has been updated to Android Marshmallow and Android Nougat.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 turned two this year, which means that Samsung could choose to keep it in Android 7.0 Nougat. There is also the possibility that you get Android 8.0.
A recent filtering of Weibo describes a possible list of Galaxy Android 8.0 updates. Both the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy Note 5 are on the list. It's great news, but it does not confirm anything.
If you've been reading the news, you may have also read something about several Samsung customer service representatives who "confirmed" the Galaxy S6 for Android Oreo update.
It's music to the ears of Galaxy S6 and Galaxy Note 5 users (the Galaxy Note 5 is newer than the Galaxy S6, so if the Galaxy S6 has Oreo we would expect the Note 5 as well), but the News must be taken with immense skepticism.
Although it is exciting, it is known that Samsung's customer service representatives "confirm" false information. So, until the news arrives from the Korean headquarters, do not believe what you read.
If Samsung offers Android Oreo to users of Galaxy Note 5 it will be huge for all Galaxy users, not only for those with a Galaxy S6 or Galaxy Note 5.
One of the advantages of the Apple iPhone About Samsung's Galaxy devices is four years of continuous software support.
Galaxy Note 5 Oreo Release date
If Samsung decides to update a Galaxy Note 5 Android Oreo, and again that's a great yes, the software will not land in 2017.
We hope the Galaxy S8 for Android Oreo beta extends through December, possibly until the end of December, as Samsung adds additional brightness to the new operating system.  According to Samsung Turkey, the company plans to launch the first Android Oreo updates in early 2018. We expect the Galaxy S8, the Galaxy S8 + and the Galaxy Note 8 to be the first on the line, followed by the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy. S7 Edge.
This is how the com The launch of Android Nougat of Pany was played:
- November 9: Samsung launches its beta version of the Galaxy S7. (November 2 this year)
- December 30: Samsung finishes the Galaxy S7 Nougat beta.
- January 5: Samsung begins to roll Android Nougat to users of Galaxy S7.
- March / April: Samsung begins to take the nougat for Galaxy S6 users.
Most Oreo Galaxy Oreo updates will land in 2018 and if the company decides to take the software to the Galaxy Note 5, do not expect it to arrive soon.
If the Samsung refuses to offer Android 8.0 Oreo to Galaxy Note 5 users, the software support for the device will not stop.
Samsung and its operating partners typically keep the devices updated with bug fixes and security patches for several years before ejecting them onto the sidewalk.
You should also be able to root your Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and get something that Android 8.0 Oreo and Samsung Experience 9.0 have to offer on your device.
If you have not explored rooting and custom ROMs, it might be a good idea to do it all and, tomorrow, or in the near future.
