Although Samsung did not include the Galaxy S8 and Note8 in the roadmap for upgrading to the latest version of Android, company support representatives assured users that both models would receive the long-awaited update this year. A little later, the network appeared updated information about the fate of the “eights”.
According to a statement by SamMobile, citing representatives of Samsung, the owners of the “eights” should not expect to upgrade their devices to the tenth revision of the “green robot”. According to a source, the company officially confirmed that a misunderstanding arose in the dialogue between users and support staff, and 2017 smartphones will remain on Android 9.0 with the first version of One UI.
Samsung, like many other smartphone makers, provides software updates for its devices within two years of its release. This often coincides with two-year gadget warranties. However, owners of three-year-old and older smartphones can take advantage of informal solutions to get the benefits of new versions of the mobile OS.
