Samsung launches Galaxy Tab A (2017) in United States for $230

"Simply referred to as the Galaxy Tab A (8.0"), Samsung's latest tablet is being targeted at families with kids in search of a big-screen entertainment solution that won't break the bank. There are no official words on if the other Samsung phones will also be upgraded to the new software.

While the Galaxy S8 Android Oreo beta sits in limbo, Samsung is clearly working on its Android 8.0 Oreo update behind the scenes.

Amid ongoing speculation about Samsung's plan to roll out Android 8.0 Oreo update to its devices, the company has just made an unexpected move in India. But then, it is noteworthy that in the report Samsung didn't name any device as such.

We can not say we are totally surprised, as Samsung is the only leading Android OEM that is yet to say anything regarding the Oreo update.

On a flight from Madrid to A Coruna operated by Iberia, the 200 passengers on the plane had never expected that they'd be receiving a free Samsung Note 8 worth $1000. The Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy S5 recently got new security updates and they're still on Android Marshmallow. Sign-ups will be carried away via the Samsung Members and Samsung+ apps. The smartphones will join many others, which will receive updates either by end-2017, or the start of 2018.

On Thursday, the South Korean tech giant released an update to its mobile payment and digital wallet service Samsung Pay in India to help it support Android 8.0 Oreo, even though the latest version of Google's mobile operating system is yet to make its way to any of the company's smartphones.
