Samsung runs an interesting site in Turkey, the name of which translates to “Are we up to date?” and it does what it says on the tin. It tells you the planned release date of upcoming Android updates for the company’s Galaxy phones.
Obviously, this is for Turkey and schedules can differ from country to country but usually not by much. Here’s the Android 8.0 Oreo schedule for some of the more interesting phones:
|Samsung Galaxy Note8||March 30|
|Samsung Galaxy S7||April 13|
|Samsung Galaxy S7 edge||April 13|
|Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017)||May 25|
|Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017)||May 25|
|Samsung Galaxy A3 (2017)||May 25|
The Galaxy S8 duo is already on Oreo (here's the changelog), though the rollout didn't exactly go smoothly.

i am waiting for s8 update till now. still not release for sri lanka. this is not acceptable as a flasgship phone of samsung
I'm still waiting for my Samsung S7 edge oreo update here in Lebanon. I always check if there is a new update but till now nothing is updated! I'll keep in touch to tell u about the new update on my Samsung S7 edge.
Would this not be because older handsets/processors/phones canÂ’t nevessarily handle the most recent update?
