Android Oreo is finally rolling out to Samsung’s warmly reviewed Galaxy S8 and S8+ smartphones, six months after Google first introduced the latest version of its smartphone operating system.

Earlier this month, Samsung ended its Oreo beta testing program programme, and assured those who had tried the software that it was ‘doing its best’ to release a final, stable version as soon as possible.

What does Android Oreo bring with it? We break down the five key changes.

That day has come, with users in France, Germany, Poland and India announcing they now have Google’s newest operating system on their Galaxy S8.

The update brings a series of security tweaks, as well as picture–in–picture for playing video while using apps, changes to how settings work and a new system for grouping notifications together.

It had been assumed Samsung would hold off releasing Oreo until it launched the Galaxy S9 and S9+.

Keen to find out about the S9? Here's what we know so far.

Those handsets are set to be unveiled at a special event in Barcelona on 26th February, a day before the annual Mobile World Congress starts in the same city.

UK users have not reported receiving Oreo yet, but it’s only a matter of time before the software lands here too.
