Android 8.0 Oreo beta for Samsung Galaxy S8 rolling out now

The beta update includes Samsung Experience 9.0 and Samsung is boasting about it a lot. Last month, we reported that Oreo had hit just 0.2 percent adoption rate, which - to be fair - wasn't hugely surprising given Oreo's limited availability, plus the company's latest flagship Pixel 2 phones had yet to go to market. In addition, those in the United Kingdom with unlocked devices, and those in Samsung's native South Korea locked to SKT, KT or LG U+ networks, will also be able to apply for early access. From there, you can sign up to be part of the 'Galaxy Beta Program, which will net you access to an early version of the Oreo update for these two smartphones.

Currently, the Beta version is available in South Korea, U.S. and the U.K. Users in South Korea, who have purchased the Samsung device from carriers like SKT, KT, and LG U+ will be getting the updates. It also comes with a choice of biometric authentication methods and Samsung's defense-grade Knox security platform. The update is bringing detailed control of notifications, new app icon badges, notification dots, and long press for context menus.

Samsung itself hasn't listed the changes introduced with Experience 9.0, but SamMobile has provided a full changelog of new features.

How do I register for the Android 8.0 Oreo beta program? It notes some improvements Google has made, such as restrictions on background apps.

There are a bunch of Nougat features that are still present in addition to the new Oreo features. Besides, Samsung's homeland South Korea is also among the favourable regions to get the update in the first wave of the rollout. The camera app also got a fresh redesign and the overall battery life is also improved.
