Miraculous Update for Galaxy S8 owners
Samsung Galaxy S8 was updated to Android Oreo earlier this year. The Android Oreo update brought a few UI changes and introduced some new features as well. So far, there wasn’t any big feature added in the Android Oreo for the update. Samsung is among the manufacturers who are not really good when it comes to software updates, and also when it comes to adding new features to an existing phone. The Super Slow-Mo and AR Emoji support for the Galaxy S8 are not less than a miracle.
So far, the AR Emoji and Super Slow-Mo features were available for Galaxy S9, S9 Plus and Note 9 only. A few days back, Samsung released an update packing same features for the Galaxy Note 8. Now, these features have found their space in the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus.
The OTA update is of about 550 MBs. However, as mentioned above, it has made its way to Germany only for now. If you are living outside Germany and you want to get these features without waiting for OTA from Samsung, you can flash the German firmware on your phone. The region of your phone doesn’t matter as long as you have the right model number. For example, the firmware that we have got our hands on can be flashed on any Samsung Galaxy that has the model number G950F or G950FD.
