INDUSTRY.co.id - San Francisco - Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ are rumored to have earned Android Oreo beta. Samsung's Oreo beta program for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ is designed to allow the flagship mobile phone owner to test the latest version of Oreo's Android operating system.

One new feature that Android users expect is the picture-in-picture capability that allows device owners to move active videos across the screen. In addition, such videos can also be changed from portrait mode to landscape, and back again.

To allow Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ users to perform a thorough test of Android 8.0 Oreo on their device, Samsung is updating the Samsung Pay app to work with the new mobile operating system made by Google.

Currently, it is not entirely clear whether Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ must register to receive Android 8.0 beta in order to get an Oreo version of Samsung Pay.

Not yet known whether the Galaxy Note 8 will also receive Android 8.0 beta version, or whether the update is specific only to the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ units.
