The Galaxy S8 is one of the most exciting Android phones in years, and we can’t wait to get our hands on it. But despite the sleek curved screen, next-gen chip, and new AI assistant, there's a hidden wrinkle: The S8 runs Nougat 7.0.
But that might not be the case for long. While Samsung didn’t specifically mention the OS at its Unpacked event, some reps we spoke to were already floating the idea of a 7.1 update in the works. And now it looks like that might come sooner than later.
Samsung has been hard at work updating its suite of apps for the Galaxy S8, but the latest APKs for the S Health and Game Tuner apps (as spotted by Sammobile) also bring support for Android Nougat 7.1. So, with the phones not scheduled to arrive until next Friday, there’s hope that an update could come at or around the same time.
