Samsung has ended its Android Oreo testing programme for the Galaxy S8 and S8+ handsets, meaning it should be available to download pretty soon.

The Korean company started the programme back in November, some three months after Google released the latest version of its operating system for its own smartphones.

What's Android Oreo got to offer? We break down all all the key features.

The end of testing means that Samsung is likely to start rolling out a final build of the platform to S8 and S8+ owners in the near future, although it did not offer any release date in a note to those who had tried the software.

“We look forward to releasing the official update as soon as we can,” it said.

What did we make of the Galaxy S8? Read the uSwitch review.

It may be that Samsung waits until 25th February to launch Android Oreo for its 2017 phones.

That’s the date it’s due to unveil its Galaxy S9 and S9+ handsets at Mobile World Congress, both of which will run Android Oreo out of the box.

Oreo comes with tweaks to how notifications work, as well as offering improved battery life and picture in picture usage.
