The screenshots from our anonymous tipster reveal the new update is 1040 MB, which might be tricky for owners of devices with 16 GB storage. It brings Samsung Experience 9.5 with plenty of UI and safety improvements in the Home Screen, Smart View, Samsung Cloud and account, etc.

Aside from the specific company improvements like a GIF tab in the Keyboard or 2x speed option in the video player, Android Oreo brings picture-in-picture mode for all devices. There is also the Notification Dots feature, dual messenger options and the neat Autofill API.
