If the information shared in the following screenshot is to be believed, the South Korean company will launch an Oreo beta program for its Galaxy S8 flagships next week on October 31.

After discreetly launching the respectable but forgettable Galaxy Tab A (2017) in countries like India or Vietnam, and announcing the ruggedized, business-optimized Galaxy Tab Active2 for "select markets" around the world, the time has come today for Samsung to unveil the Galaxy Tab A (8.0) in the United States with minimal fanfare as well.

As for the Oreo Beta Programme in the US, Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ owners on either T-Mobile or Sprint will reportedly be able to sign up for the beta through the Samsung Members and Samsung+ apps. Samsung is one of the few companies still releasing tablets in 2017, and following the high-end Tab S3 that came out earlier this year, we now have a much more affordable option with the latest entry in the Galaxy Tab A series.

The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9Plus will probably be released in March or April.

A message in Spanish on the Galaxy Note 8 box reads: "A year ago we asked you to turn it off, we welcome you today on board".

Google is working with several smartphone vendors to upgrade their select devices to Android 8.0 Oreo.

Samsung launched the Note 8 device late in August 2017 and was made available in the market on September 15.

That said, Samsung and its carrier partners usually extend bug fixes and security patches to devices well beyond the two-year mark.

With the Oreo update, Samsung phones are going to get a wide range of new features.
