Galaxy S8 Won't Get Android 10 Update Despite Being 2017 Flagship (Report)

It’s been almost a month since Android 10 launched. If you have a Samsung phone and you are wondering if your own device is getting the update, here’s a list that allegedly confirms who is getting it and who is not. Spoiler: if you have an S8 or Note 8, you may be screwed.

Yeah, your 2017 flagship phone is not getting Android 10, according to the official list leaked by AndroidPure. That is pretty bad on its own but especially when compared to Apple — Samsung’s direct competition. The Cupertino company is unleashing iOS 13 today for every iPhone all the way down to the iPhone 6s and compact iPhone SE, which were released in 2015 and 2016, respectively.

It’s especially surprising since Samsung is updating its Galaxy A7 to Android 10, a phone that arguably has much less firepower than the S8 and that was released in the same year. We can only hope that the list is not complete.
