Samsung has hit the gas a bit and several of its main mobile phones are preparing to receive Android Oreo between March and May 2018.
The most important among the selected mobiles is the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, the latest premium phone from the Korean firm before the announcement of the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus, whose operation you can see in our video analysis of the terminal.

All this information comes from a turkish shop operated by the subsidiary of Samsung in that country. Therefore, the data is as official as possible, although it is true that various variations may occur depending on the market. In Spain they will not necessarily arrive on those same dates, but it is expected that in this time frame updates will take place in most markets.
In the case of Galaxy S7, we are probably talking about its last major update, as it will be two years by the time that Android P is widely available. In the case of the rest of the devices, its launch in 2017 opens the door to the arrival of Android P in the higher end, but it is not a hope to keep high.
