The Android version of Oreo Beta 4 for the Samsung Galaxy S8 series is now moving towards devices registered in the Samsung Experience 9.0 preview program. The construction labeled as the software version & # 39; ZQL8 & # 39; for both the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus it weighs 850 MB and the attached change log contains a fairly complete list of fixes. In addition, the latest beta firmware improves Bluetooth stability and introduces a new Google security patch, presumably for the month of December, taking into account that the previous beta version included the November patch.
The fourth build of Android Oreo Beta for the Samsung Galaxy S8 series comes only a couple of days after it was confirmed by an official, which indicates that the development of the update progresses according to the plan. The previous compilation was already relatively stable, however, the fourth beta version contains a fairly large list of improvements for a wide variety of problems, ranging from overheating and restarting the device while playing games, to images that are not shown in the application of the gallery. The update should improve the battery life and solve a problem that prevented the iris sensor from responding, and also addressed an error that caused the temporary freezing of the devices. After the fourth beta update, users should also have no difficulty logging in with their Samsung accounts or synchronizing data with Samsung Cloud. In addition, random vibrations should no longer occur, and a couple of applications that include Theme and GameTools should no longer close intermittently. As usual, Samsung advises users to back up their data before applying the latest firmware, and beta participants must ensure that their smartphones have at least half the battery charge before installing the new software.
Samsung could launch the first public update of Oreo for the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus at the end of January, baduming no major problems will be encountered in the fourth beta version of Android Oreo. Otherwise, according to Samsung officials who spoke earlier about the potential launch window of the update, the company may have to delay the public launch until February 2018 in case of noticeable problems. The Oreo beta test for the Galaxy Note 8 is also expected to begin in the coming weeks.
