Samsung starts rolling out Android security patch for the month of October on its Galaxy J3 (2017). One Reddit user recently did some digging in the Samsung Plus app (which offers tips and access to special programs in the U.S.) and discovered multiple mentions of something called the Oreo Beta Program.

It's an unlocked device as a result, with some of its chief attractions being Samsung Knox Configure and Samsung Enterprise Firmware Over the Air, which let IT administrators easily configure the devices remotely and update every device in the system at once. While the Galaxy A7 (2018) can boast of an nearly bezel-less screen, it won't have the smooth curved edges of its pricier cousins, Galaxy S8 or Galaxy Note 8. This is unlikely to change as Samsung's usual strategy for providing major OS updates rarely includes lower-end budget-friendly models, so the device will probably remain in the Nougat category throughout the remainder of its lifetime.

As usual, device owners can choose to wait for the notification to arrive or attempt to pull the update manually by heading down to the software section within the phone's Settings app. Keep in mind that the process is better carried over an active Wi-Fi network, and make sure to avoid commencing the update if the smartphone has less than 50 percent of battery charge left.

Additionally, the enterprise version of the Note8 will receive more regular security updates for up to three years. While the beta will likely be limited, we don't expect Samsung's official Android Oreo release to be limited in scope.

What about Android 8.0 Oreo beta update for AT&T and Verizon Galaxy S8 variants? The listing reveals that the chipset will support Bluetooth 5.0, meaning that both of them could come with Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity.

Looking at the accounts given by different Samsung Galaxy Note 8 users, it's easy to deduce that the Contacts app has something to do with the freezing issue.
