Samsung Android Oreo update roadmap

There are 12 devices in the Samsung Android Oreo update roadmap, and surprisingly, Samsung is planning to update several devices from 2016 to Android Oreo. And guess what, they are all mid-range devices, which is even more surprising.

The list of devices comprises mostly of devices from the Galaxy J series, but there are a few Galaxy A, C and On devices too, including a tablet.

7 out of the 12 devices were launched with Android Marshmallow, and later updated to Android Nougat. You know what that means? The Android Oreo update is the second major Android OS update for the phones. It is good to see Samsung treating its customers well, in a world where getting even a single Android version update is kind of a miracle, in the mid-range market.

Read on to see the list of Samsung devices which will get the Oreo Update.
