Samsung have taken their sweet time with the Oreo update, but if you're buying an S9 you're

If you own a phone made by Sony or Nokia, the Android Oreo OS update will be old hat. Not if you own a Samsung however.

Even though the Android 8 Oreo beta testing was released over 3 months ago, Samsung have only just started to role out the update their customers. But don't get too excited, only those who bought their S8's or S8+ phones sim free or directly from Samsung will have it in the next 24/48 hours. Those on contract will have to wait until their network providers have done their quality checks. Making it hugely possible that the S9/S9+ will be released with Oreo loaded as the default operating system with some S8/S8+ users still using Android 7 Nougat.

Although the new flagship S9 series has the same look as it's predecessor, the internal enhancements are supposed to be very pleasing.

  • An impressive 6GB of RAM

  • A mighty Snap Dragon 845 processor

  • An improved battery life

  • A dual camera with fantastic accompanying software bulging with special effects

  • A fingerprint scanner relocated to sit underneath the camera instead of next to it (which will either please or infuriate users)

My mouth is already watering at the thought of owning one of these technological marvels, although it was my eyes which were watering at the price tag. The S9 will retail at around the £790 mark which is approximately £100 more than the S8.

Here's a sneak peek of the highly anticipated Galaxy S9/S9+
