Samsung has been issuing new smartphones every year for quite some time now.

Over the last few weeks, a possible under-display fingerprint sensor in Galaxy Note 9 has become a much talked about point on the internet but a new report by KGI Securities has dampened the spirits of many. The latest Samsung Galaxy S series has been released earlier at the Mobile World Congress (MWC), which has been named as Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus were originally released with Android 7.0 or 7.1 Nougat. According to the data compiled by industry tracker Counterpoint Research, the company accounted for 38.3 percent of the region's smartphone market a year ago.

Following this, Samsung notes that the Galaxy S7, S7 Edge, Galaxy A5, and Tab S3 will get the Oreo treatment in the "spring/summer".


Soon identical update should be out for the flagship models including Galaxy S8, S8 Plus and Note 8.

Speculation emerged Samsung would integrate an in-display fingerprint reader to its Galaxy S9 or Note 9 smartphone, following a patent publication.

Thanks to a post on Samsung Turkey's status page, we have somewhat clear indications on when the 2017 Galaxy models (and some 2016 models) will be receiving the Android 8.0 Oreo update. Tell us your thoughts in the comment section down below!
