What is known
Samsung has finished with the update Galaxy S8 / S8 + and Note 8. Next on the line will be the flagship of 2016. All devices that receive new major updates need to re-pass the Wi-Fi certification. Thanks to this, several smartphones were seen in the Wi-Fi Alliance with Android 8.0 Oreo "on board". Among them there is Galaxy S7 / S7 Edge, as well as Galaxy A5 (2017) and Galaxy A3 (2017). In addition, it is expected that the update will also receive a tablet Galaxy Tab S3.

Both smartphones work on the Exynos 8890 chip paired with the graphics accelerator Mali-T880 MP12.
