Samsung isn’t known for its great software management, and some people even despise the company for the simple reason that it takes them so long to push out major updates to their flagships. But after a discovery that Reddit user @Clouded_flower made this week, opinions might change.
@Clouded_flower found a page on T-Mobile’s website that states that the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge and the Note 5 will get the Android Oreo update, which is remarkable because most flagships get a max of two years for major software updates. The Plus models will presumably get the update too.
The pages state that the update is underway and in development. “T-Mobile and the device manufacturer have agreed to support a new software update.” This is very promising as these 3-year-old flagships are still very popular. Nothing has been confirmed yet by Samsung, but the official T-Mobile website states this, so the chance that this happens is fairly high. Android Police have reached out to Samsung for an official statement but are yet to hear back.
This is very good news for many Samsung users that cannot afford a new flagship. This shows that Samsung truly does think about their users and are trying to make a step in the right direction on the software page.
