Next up, Samsung Canada vaguely promises Oreo "support" for the Galaxy S7, S7 Edge, A5 and Tab S3 in "Spring/Summer 2018", followed by the Galaxy Xcover 4, Galaxy A8, J3 Prime, Tab A8, Tab Active 2 and Tab A 10.1 "later in 2018". Kuo expects the mass market adoption of the technology to happen in the first-half of next year, just in time for the Galaxy S10 launch. KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has released a new research note to investors, seen by Apple Insider, where he claims the successor to the Note 8 won't get a revolutionary in-display fingerprint scanner.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus were originally released with Android 7.0 or 7.1 Nougat. Released past year, the smartphone was previously known as the A5, but the company has changed its name so that users associate it with the flagship models.

Yep, that means the Galaxy Note 8 has not received the Android Oreo update yet. Don't fret, however, because we have got news!

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 may not feature an under-display fingerprint scanner.

Specifically, an official notice in the regional Samsung Members app mentions a March 28 date for the start of the Galaxy Note 8 update. However, Samsung has already pushed out the first update to it's flagship smartphones. As is the case usually, the update may take upto a week to hit your handset. And as always, stay tuned for more information regarding Samsung and their smartphones!
