We have some great news to bring to Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 owners now, as we are getting reports from users that the long awaited Android Oreo 8.0 update is finally rolling out!
The Galaxy Tab S3 has been available on the market for just over a year and having shipped with Android Nougat, we can now see that notifications for an update to Android Oreo is now starting to happen.
We were informed of the news on Twitter and can confirm that the build number for the Oreo update is identified as T820XXU1BRE2 and is available to download in the UK for Galaxy Tab WiFi (model number SM-T820) and also LTE (model number SM-T825) users.
If you are not in the UK, fear not as there is a way to get the download now as long as you are comfortable with flashing the update yourself on your device.
To do this you can follow the guide that we found over on XDA Developers Forums and this will allow you to get an official version of Oreo on the Galaxy Tab S3 no matter where you are in the world and no need to wait for Samsung.
For those unsure about installing the update manually, then you can simply wait as Samsung should be rolling out the same Oreo build to other countries at a gradual process.
Let us know if you have installed Oreo on your Galaxy Tab S3 and how performance is for you after the update.
