M.O.A.B.884, 17 Jan 2018if the S6 is getting it (which is still very doubtful) the note 5 should get itI do not doubt that Android Oreo is being tested on the Galaxy S6 family.
But as on other occasions, it is quite possible that this update will be disapproved for obvious reasons.
pika2000, 16 Jan 2018Wouldn't hold my breath.
Samsung is releasing premium mid-range A8 2018 with 7.1.1 instead of... moreAndroid 7.1.2 for Samsung is that neither Android 2.3.7 was in 2011.
And who received the Nougat, received! Independently whether it is 7.0 or 7.1.1, or whether it is SE 8.0, 8.1 or 8.5.
Now just wait for the Oreo to be distributed in the second half.
Not Reliable. I'm also a Samsung representative and sometimes we just give answers to make customers happy although we don't have the information they are asking for. =D
How can you believe a customer reps? you can't be that dumb can you?
last year Galaxy S6 Edge+ got Android 7.0, Marshmallow in May 2017..so we know February is BS
faizxy, 16 Jan 2018That's unfair no nougat for s5 but Oreo for s6You can install a nougat lineage os custom rom
I did it with my galaxy tab s and it's working really fast
Henare, 17 Jan 2018What about note 5 ( N920 C )if the S6 is getting it (which is still very doubtful) the note 5 should get it
Compare and Recycle, 16 Jan 2018Actually, Samsung support representative didn't confirm anything. He only said that Samsung wi... moreexactly, looks like he is playing with words or something, seems fishy
I am samsung heavy user, samsung so many times cancel even flagship s3, late is good enough
Too good to be true. Loool. YÂ’all have to wait before making pessimistic comments. Samsung could have changed their policy for updates. Recent Samsung phones are light years ahead of their previous phones. They are getting better at their game. ItÂ’s about time we have android manufacturers getting close to the level of Apple.
Or it could just be a fib like all the indian call center agents tell me just so I would get off the phone / chat.
The S6 getting Oreo? My gosh, that is amazing and a first for a 3 year old phone outside of the Nexus series.
pramod5774, 16 Jan 2018Samsung going Sony way. Sony? You got to be kidding me. Have you seen or heard anything that Oreo might hit Z5 Series?
Actually, Samsung support representative didn't confirm anything. He only said that Samsung will update in regards which phones will receive the oreo. Read carefully the message at 14:22 C(:
faizxy, 16 Jan 2018That's unfair no nougat for s5 but Oreo for s6The S5 neo did get Nougat:
But that's probably due to it being Exynos, wheras the S5, with SD801, Qualcom being a greedy d!ck didn't release official drivers for it:
Luxor, 16 Jan 2018Why didnt you joined Samsung android oreo beta program? It is your loss. Every year the flagsh... moreNote 8 does not have beta program.
Samsung mainly copies apple iPhone, see the note app or reminder app .. you will understand . So there is no harm to give update first because it's not their OS; it's android and android updated to Oreo long back ...
