The Oreo beta testing on Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ is in progress and this implies we get an early look at what the new firmware will offer.
The primary screenshots come politeness of Redditor thesbros who uncovered a lot of insights about it alongside a few remarks about performance and appearance.
Oreo is bringing App icon identifications, detailed control of notification and long press for setting menus to the Samsung flagships. There is additional history for the search bar in Settings.
Thesbros says Oreo is smoother than Android 7.0 and analyzes it to the Galaxy Note8 and the Google Pixel execution. We already detailed that a portrait mode may accompany the OS update, however as indicated by the beta tester, there is no such feature. The touch latency is noticeably lower, and no highlights features are missing, up until this point.
The UI remains a similar outline design-wise. The animation is the same, but now they are all smoother. The accent hues continue as before, and the Roboto Condensed text style is unchanged. The camera application, on other hands, accompanies “a pleasant design”.
