    Hmmm, interesting. I might get to try it out on my unlocked S8. Although that usually gets the update last for some reason.

    I can't download the Samsung Members app... I guess it's not available for carrier branded S8/S8+ devices.

    I think it's only sprint and t-mobile this year which sucks. I'm on Verizon.

    Mine is an unlocked S8 and can't get the members app from the link... Says incompatible. I did download Samsung + app, since the article says that's what is used for phones in North America. Guess we'll see tomorrow if it works.

    Not bothered at all.
    Not "bothered" but I've always been a sucker for beta testing. I think it comes from being a part of the Microsoft Insider program for so long.

    From what I've read it will only be available for T-Mo, Sprint and unlocked phones. No idea why they would lock out AT&T or Verizon.

    Yeah. It would be cool to be a beta tester. For those of you who get the chance...test the HECK out of it!

    TMobile and Sprint are international carriers, while Verizon and AT&T aren't, is my guess at least.

    That is not true. If that was the case, then I wouldn't be able to use my Verizon phone while I was in Okinawa a couple weeks ago.

    Like another poster said in a similar thread, Verizon and AT&T customers were beta testing Nougat last year. It seems that Samsung alternates.

    AT&T didn't have the beta last year. It was T-mobile, Sprint, and Verizon. Verizon dipped out mid beta though. So not surprising that they won't participate in it this year.

    Last year, I had two S7 Edge phones so I ran the beta on one. The beta ended up running so good after a few updates that I wished I would have been able to update the other to the beta but the registration had ended.

    I have an US unlocked S8+. I'll probably run the beta on it since I also have a Note 8. I hope they allow the beta again this year!

    Yes, I remember being disappointed since I was on AT&T at the time.

    Seeing that Pixel is already getting 8.1 I read yesterday, I thought the S8's and 7's would be getting it soon.

    It's supposed to be available for unlocked devices but I haven't had any luck so far. I updated the Samsung Plus app but still haven't gotten a registration notice.

    Pfft...I still haven't received an update since Aug
    Interested in seeing how Oreo does on the phone...reports are it's a little faster/smoother though I can't say that I've noticed it being slow at all and I recently came over from an iP7+

    Also curious if there are any conflicts with Nova Launcher and TeslaUnread.
