Software updates, a question that has left some users of the brand with a bad impression of it. However, it appears that soon the Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) and Samsung Galaxy A3 (2017), receive the system update for Android Oreo 8.0. This is the latest version of Google’s operating system will soon come to these devices.
By “brief”, considering that we are talking about Samsung, it is understood 3 to 4 weeks of waiting. I also recall that Android Oreo would be made available by Google in August 2017. It is only now, in the 4th month of 2018, that the South Korean manufacturer deigns to upgrade its mid-range devices. But there is more …
Indeed, as usual, Samsung did not even say a word about the arrival of this update for their equipment. Everything that we advance here is based on the firmware certification (system software), based on Android Oreo. In fact, recent builds for the Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) and Samsung Galaxy A3 (2017) will already bring this new version of the operating system.
This same update for Android Oreo should also be coming soon to the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge, something that we have advanced here at 4gnews. Even so, the existence of firmware based on Android Oreo does not necessarily mean that the brand distributes it. Of course, let’s hope for the best and nothing obstructs its quiet distribution to the terminals.

However, we would also watch the arrival of Android Oreo for the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 in the United States of America and in some European markets. In Portugal, users in many cases are still waiting. A completely unacceptable situation for the one that is the world’s largest manufacturer of mobile devices. What’s more, even their top-of-the-line games are waiting for months for an update the competition brings in record time. Look at Nokia, Sony or even Huawei whose EMUI interface is “heavy” and still not delay as much as Samsung.
Android Oreo will arrive with Samsung Experience 9.
In short, we do not know exactly when this update will begin to be distributed. However, according to rumors, the Galaxy S7 will begin and receive the update by the end of this month. It is believed that the Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) and Samsung Galaxy A3 (2017) receive it next. That said, we anticipate a delay of 3 to 4 weeks until the update finally reaches mid-range smartphones.
Again, it should be noted that the brand did not issue any communications or information regarding the updates. In fact most probably only when (and if) the update begins to be distributed is that we will officially know that it exists and is reaching users. In fact, the whole process of updates is anything but clear, unfortunately, we do not have accurate information, only contextual evidence.
Finally, the Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) and Samsung Galaxy A3 (2017) would be introduced in January 2017. What’s more, they are mid-range devices that would hit the market with Android Marshmallow 6.0.1. Meanwhile, they would also receive the Android Nougat 7.0. Having said that, the update for Android Oreo will most likely be the last major system update they will receive. However, you should continue to receive security updates.
As soon as the update begins to be distributed they will be the first to know.
