Samsung 'DeX Pad' leaked ahead of the Galaxy S9 official launch

Samsung Galaxy S8

After delaying it for several weeks, Samsung has finally rolled out the Oreo update to Galaxy S8 devices. It includes features like a new keyboard, improvements to Bixby, color lens for the display, and more.

With that in mind, we want to take Galaxy J users through the most important things to know, right now, about their Android Oreo update and release. From the report via SamMobile, the Oreo rollout has started with the firmware version G955XXU1CRAP for Galaxy S8+ in Germany. The latest breaking news is that the Hyperknit back covers for the Samsung Galaxy S9 has been spotted on the web via a Romania-based mobile retailer Quickmobile. As mentioned earlier there have been no numbers for the Exynos 9810 on the Samsung Galaxy S9 and hence its hard to actually compare these numbers with other devices.

Either way, Samsung's CRAP update will be winging its way to Galaxy S8 handsets in Europe very soon, so, as always, keep your eyes peeled for an OTA update in the next week or so. We expect it to be around 1.3-1.5 GB.

It's better to stay put at this time and wait for more information on the Exynos 9810 and then we'll be able to see the battle we've been waiting for - Snapdragon 845 vs Exynos 9810. Samsung Experience is essentially the new name for the company's earlier UI called TouchWiz. Also, the update's download size is just 487 MB which is smaller for the beta testers. Yes, you can lay down the entire phone on the DeX so you can hold the entire device. Do you like the look of the upgraded DeX Pad?

The company's Android Oreo update, at least the initial batch, delivers the company's January security update. You'd think it'd have this aspect of its business down by now... but no.

To check if you have received the update, access Settings Software Update.
