The carrier's webpage further reads "T-Mobile and the device manufacturer have agreed to support a new software update", which is Oreo 8.0. The original news appeared on T-Mobile's website where they have listed down the 2015's Galaxy devices which would receive this update of Android Oreo in the coming days.

Although the leaked list, which first revealed which Samsung devices will get the Oreo update, included the Note 5, a confirmation from T-Mobile holds more value. The company's been infamous for years in regards to the speed and longevity at which it updates its existing hardware, so it's a pleasant surprise to see that the entire Galaxy S6 series and Galaxy Note 5 will, in fact, be updated to Android 8.0 Oreo.

The largest smartphone manufacturer and the slowest software update introducer, Samsung is apparently introducing Android Oreo update to its nearly three years old devices.

It can be said with certainty that flagship devices will receive a significant OS update at least once in their life cycle, but the same doesn't apply to older and non-flagship devices. Yes, we are indeed talking about the official Android Oreo update. U.S. carrier had tipped this development on its official website.

By now, it's been a long wait for owners of Samsung Galaxy flagship smartphones waiting to receive the Android Oreo update.

The Galaxy S8 Oreo update weights in at 487MB, and contains the latest February 2018 security patch. This clearly means the T-Mobile networks have successfully tested out the Android Oreo update on these devices and they are running successfully on the devices. So apparently, the Oreo update will be available for more Galaxy devices of the year 2015.

Well, the South Korean giant has not confirmed anything yet regarding this update as of now.
