Samsung halts Android Oreo rollout on Galaxy S8 due to ‘unexpected’ restarts

Samsung started rolling out Android Oreo for the Galaxy S8 at the beginning of the week, but then just hours later, it seemed to have stopped. Now Samsung is revealing why: it was causing some phones to randomly reboot, according to a statement given to SamMobile. Samsung says it hopes to roll out a fixed version of the update “as quickly as possible.”

SamMobile first reported that the update had been pulled on Monday, saying that it heard Samsung was already at work on a new version of the update. At the time, though, it wasn’t clear what had gone wrong. Samsung now says the problem affects both the S8 and S8 Plus in “a limited number of cases,” but clearly it was enough to halt the software’s rollout.

While this means that some S8…

Just last week, Samsung began rolling out Android 8.0 Oreo to the Galaxy S8 and S8+ after a roughly three-month beta phase. However, according to SamMobile, it seems like Samsung has suspended the rollout, though the reason behind that decision is unclear. 

The update had already been reaching devices in several countries, including Turkey, Norway, the UAE, India, Belgium, Germany, France, and Poland.

Samsung halts Android 8.0 Oreo update for Galaxy S8

Samsung Galaxy S8 home screen hands on

Samsung began pushing Android 8.0 to the Galaxy S8 in Germany one week ago, and since then, the update has made its way to GS8 and GS8+ units in a handful of other countries. Unfortunately, it sounds like all other Galaxy S8 owners will have to wait awhile longer for their serving of Oreo.

Samsung has halted its Android 8.0 Oreo update for the Galaxy S8 and S8+. According to SamMobile, the update is no longer available for download from Samsung’s servers. There’s no word yet on exactly why the update has been pulled, though.

Sources speaking to SamMobile say that Samsung is working on a new Oreo update for the Galaxy S8, but it’s unclear when this new update might begin rolling out.

It’s disappointing to hear that Samsung had to pull its Oreo update for the Galaxy S8. Owners of the GS8 and GS8+ have been waiting for months for their Android 8.0 update, but one week after it finally began rolling out, it had to be pulled. However, there must’ve been some issue with it or something that didn’t work the way it should, so it’s good that Samsung halted the update rather than keep pushing it out to users.

Stay tuned and we’ll let you know when the Galaxy S8’s Oreo update resumes its rollout.
