After a long Beta testing period which seemed to take forever, Samsung finally sent out the Andriod Oreo update for Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+. The update was only made available to a few markets such as Turkey, Norway, the UAE, India, Belgium, Germany, France, and Poland.

The rollout was stopped a few hours later with Samsung pulling the firmware files of the S8 and S8+ from its server. According to a statement given by SamMobile, the updates were pulled because it was causing some phones to restart.

This problem only occurred in a limited number of cases but clearly, it was enough to pull the update. Samsung is already on a new version of the update which they expect to be made available very soon.

The impact of the buggy update is somewhat limited due to the fact that the buggy software was not distributed worldwide. It’s surprising that this would happen after months of beta testing the update but the early detection of the problem has left enough room for redemption.
