Re: Samsung S8 Oreo update

Virgin UK have now released the update. O2 can't even be bothered to give us an ETA. Pathetic.

Re: Samsung S8 Oreo update

Why am i surprised we are getting Oreo late? By the time it gets released, i would be the proud owner of the S10. Sort it out O2.

CPW sell unlocked unbranded phones.
It's the phone that dictates the updates, not the sim card in it.

Re: Samsung S8 Oreo update

Any updates on a release date on this? I'm seeing every single network has released it in the UK but as per usual crappy o2 taking the absolute Michael releasing it were still on the November security patch for God's sake so security updates are almost 5 months out of date so o2 obviously aren't bothered about there customers security either.

Re: Samsung S8 Oreo update

I recently setup 2 Samsung galaxy s8 + handsets for my in-laws on sky mobile. Firstly applied update brought the security patch for December 2017, the second 1 was build number ending CRAP. Meaning their 2 handsets on sky mobile are now on Android Oreo. My s8+ on o2 UK is still on November 2017 security patch Android Nougat.

Re: Samsung S8 Oreo update

Sky handsets are on unbranded open firmware which had the Oreo update last week.
