Samsung had to discontinue the update rollout, much to the chagrin of S8 owners. But don’t worry, an explanation was released and now the update is once again ready for download.
The main reason for the cancellation was not because it came out without Treble. Samsung noted numerous Galaxy S8 and S8+ devices phone were reportedly rebooting unexpectedly with Android 8.0 Oreo. The issue was being investigated but up to know, we don’t know the reason behind the reboot.
Samsung has fixed the problem. Update release has resumed so be prepared for versions G950FXXU1CRB7 or G955XXU1CRB7 to hit your Galaxy S8 and S8+. Make sure you have at least 530MB of free storage for those who previously have the beta build.
