Samsung has finally released the Official Update of Android 8.0 Oreo for Galaxy S8 Plus. You can directly install it on your device using Odin. Samsung has rolled out this update to some regions via OTA (Over-the-air), but if you did not receive the update yet, you could manually download the flashable zip from the tutorial below.
Also, this is the brand’s first Oreo Firmware disregarding the Note 8’s accidental roll-out. Luckily, you can test it out on your device using our tutorial below. Just keep in mind, this is an Official Firmware for Galaxy S8 Plus, not a custom ROM. Official Firmware is completely unbranded, which means, there is no additional tweaks or pre-installed apps inbuilt.
