Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Models Facing Freezing Issues

Galaxy S8 owners can speed up the process of getting Oreo on their handsets, though, by signing up to Samsung's Galaxy Beta Programme.

The sales of Samsung Galaxy Note 8 smartphone in South Korea have reached 1 million units in a little over a month's time after the device hit local shelves, industry data showed on Thursday.

The Galaxy S8 Oreo beta program is now only available in three markets, including the US, UK, and South Korea.

Here's What's New in the Android 8.0 Oreo Beta for Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus! As for U.S. users, the beta update is available for devices on Sprint and T-Mobile network or unlocked version.

The rules of the league says that players "should" stand up during the Star-Spangled Banner , but does not make this mandatory. In a tweet, he wrote, "The NFL has decided that it will not force players to stand for the playing of our National Anthem".


Some users of the service Reddit that claim to already have access to the beta, saying that after the update the phone works much faster. The update also features Oreo's app shortcuts that appear when long-pressing an app icon, and reportedly will bring improved RAM management. E-FOTA enables IT admins to comprehensively manage a fleet of devices through centralized OS and software version control and scheduled updates.

Samsung, in the changelog, says it has made changes in the Quick Panel, Home Screen gestures, Samsung Keyboard, System Performance, Edge Screen, Samsung Cloud, Dual Messenger and more. It notes some improvements Google has made, such as restrictions on background apps.

It's tempting, especially given that we don't have an official release date for the Galaxy S8 Android Oreo update. Currently, Oreo represents 0.2 percent of the roughly two billion Android devices in use today. Besides, Samsung's homeland South Korea is also among the favourable regions to get the update in the first wave of the rollout.
