Samsung Galaxy S8 backed with Android 8.0 Oreo made a sudden appearance on the Geekbench. This just new mention in the list increases the probability that the Android update might land soon, after Samsung confirmed way back this month that it had started working in the same direction. So, this update may or may not arrive in a week or too but for sure very soon. Following the same fashion, other Samsung devices like Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy S8 Plus, Galaxies S7, and so on.
Sources revealed that the test unit with Android 8.0 Oreo managed to score 2,029 points in the single core test on Geekbench, while 6,845 points in the multi core test. The Samsung Galaxy S8 has been a flagship smartphone for some time and still is doing well in the market. The device which most probably runs currently on Android 7.0 Nougat, on getting update to Android 8.0 Oreo will give access to new features to the Android Ecosystem that will be probably available via Samsung’s UI installed on top of it. Also, the Oreo version will enable the users to use the all-new picture-in-picture mode, for instance, while some battery consumptions optimizations will also be there, the OS now will be able to handle the battery sucking apps more efficiently, and prevent them from going out-of-hand in the background.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 features a 5.8-inch QHD+ Super AMOLED Infinity display, curved on both the edges. Powered by either the Exynos 8895 or the Snapdragon 835, depending on the market you choose. The storage is 4GB RAM, fueled with battery of 3,000 Mah.
