Samsung stops release of Galaxy S8 Android Oreo update following ‘unexpected’ restarts

Galaxy S8

Samsung began rolling out Android Oreo 8.0 to the Galaxy S8 and S8+ earlier this week, but it looks like the operating system update has been halted.

Samsung says that the update was causing some devices to randomly reboot, according to a statement from the company sent to SamMobile. Samsung also says that a fixed version of the update will release “as quickly as possible.”

The South Korean tech giant states that the issue affects both the S8 and the S8+ in “a limited number of cases.” This means that some S8 owners are stuck with bug-filled software release, though reports indicate that the Oreo update hasn’t been distributed worldwide.

As a result, it’s possible that not many devices have been affected, though a specific number remains unclear.
