My unlocked samsung Glaxay S8+ doesn't update

Hi

I have purchased an unlocked S8+ directly from samsung.com U.S store. Recently I have moved to the UK. I am trying to update my device but every time I tap on the update, it replies me that I have the latest software installed in my device.

I have even plugged my device into my laptop and used SmartSwitch and still I do not see anything. I gave a last try using couple of VPN server to mimic my device as if I am in U.S but still no luck.

 

Can you please advice me on how am I supposed to update my device to Oreo.

 

Thanks

Sajid

Thank you for the update. I was curious because I saw my wife's phone was updated to Android Oreo. Is there any official date when the updates will be pushed for U.S models?

Thanks

There is no official release date but I wouldn't say you'd have to wait too long considering Sprint just released Oreo officially today on S8/S8+. I'd speculate that we might have it by Monday but that's just my speculation.

But I thought the point of buying unlocked phone is to get the update faster than a carrier phone.

Exactly that was my point of buying an unlocked phone, to get updates faster, but now I guess I need to ditch this phone and stick to devices powered by Android One or Google Pixel

Speculated to release tomorrow. Hopefully, it's true.
