Samsung releases new Galaxy Note 8 Enterprise Edition aimed at businesses

In the United Kingdom, the beta update will only be available for unlocked devices while in the USA, unlocked devices and those on Sprint or T-Mobile are supported. It revealed the images and text for "Android 8.0 Oreo" for the Galaxy S8. As with any beta firmware, if you need your smartphone for important day-to-day tasks, it's probably best to wait until the public release of Oreo. We are talking about Samsung's Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus, both of which are still saddled with Nougat, though not for long. Some users were talking about it in September also but people didn't pay attention towards them.

The Galaxy S8 Oreo beta program is now only available in three markets, including the US, UK, and South Korea.

Samsung Experience 9.0 is based on Android Oreo and will be the version it releases with its next Galaxy flagship, which presumably will be called the Galaxy S9. The official version of Android 8.0 Oreo might not arrive until next year.

Previously known as TouchWiz, the beta offers customers a chance to try out new features launching in the Galaxy ecosystem. You can also snooze notifications from a specific app for a specific period of time.

For those unaware, however, Android 8.0 Oreo brings a plethora of exciting new features to the table, like support for Program-in-Picture (PiP), notification channels, adaptive icons, circular emoji and, of course, a new Easter egg.

Samsung is also committed to providing the Note 8 Enterprise Edition with monthly security updates for three whole years, which should lessen some of the worry about company devices getting ruined by exploits and malicious software.
