Samsung's old flagships will soon get a new life.

Apart from the flagship range, Samsung is also to release an Android Oreo-based OTA update for the and, among other devices. The company is yet to provide the list of devices due to receive the Android Oreo update.

The pages for the S6, S6 edge, S6 edge+, and Note 5 all say "Phase: Complete: Version 8.0 Oreo" and "T-Mobile and the device manufacturer have agreed to support a new software update".

It's unclear at this time if other carriers in the US will follow in T-Mobile's footsteps, and there's also no word as to when Oreo will start to roll out to the above devices.

Well, it is still unclear whether the other networks in the United States and the original global variants of the devices will get the update, as there is no any confirmation on this as of the current time. Now what we can assume from this is that Samsung and T-Mobile may have finished testing the Android Oreo update for the above-mentioned devices and it's ready to be rolled-out. While we still don't know what's happening in Samsung's labs, there's a high chance that these Galaxy and Note models will eventually receive Android Oreo updates. According to SamMobile, the Oreo update for beta testers has a file size of 487MB and arrives with the latest February security patch.




To remind you, Samsung Galaxy Note 5 was originally launched back in August, 2015 with Android 5.0 Lollipop on-board.

The update weighs in close to 3 GB and brings VoLTE support to Vodafone and Jio users, along with the usual suite of EMUI 8 and Oreo features.

A few other sources also claim that the official Android Oreo update for the listed devices will begin rolling out from this current month itself to the devices.

Well, the South Korean giant has not confirmed anything yet regarding this update as of now. This follows on the heels of last week's release of the update to users in the UK. We would let you update with every single update made by Samsung in the future related to Android Oreo operating system.
