Samsung halts Oreo rollout for the Galaxy S8 due to 'unexpected reboots'

Galaxy S9 camera teasers should worry iPhone X

If you can't get Android Oreo update on your Galaxy S8/S8+, you're not alone

Do let us know your experience so far.

Samsung's Galaxy S9 (5.8-inch) and S9+ (6.2-inch) will have pretty much same design language, but differ in one aspect. The only changes affect the rear panel, where Samsung reshuffled the rear camera, flash, and fingerprint sensor into a more finger-friendly arrangement.

It now appears that Samsung made a strategic move.

The invitation itself pointed to the obvious focus on the camera on this new device. Brief looping videos are also shown which may be an indication of live photos or GIF creation capability.

Visually speaking, all signs point toward the Galaxy S9 being very similar to the Galaxy S8. Samsung announced the Unpacked date with the tagline "The Camera". Again, the Galaxy S9 isn't expected to feature 3D facial recognition like the iPhone X, so it's unclear if Samsung's solution will be anywhere near as secure as the iPhone X. As it turns out, the Android 8.0 update for the Galaxy S8 lineup had arrived with an issue - unexpected reboots for some users. On the back, we'll have single-cam setups for the Galaxy S9, and dual-lens shooters for the Galaxy S9+.

The other video clips released recently teased the new slow-motion and low-light abilities of the Galaxy S9 camera. The scene with the deer brightens up considerably even in the dark.

Apparently, a number of sudden rebooting cases was reported since Android 8.0 Oreo was installed.

These main features also offering different functions to the bottom display when at the time phone is held vertically.

The smartphone will reportedly have one speaker at the top and one at the bottom, which would be a great improvement over the current generation of Samsung flagships.
