Google brought some amazing upgrades with the Android Oreo. Like the PIP (Picture in Picture) mode which will let you draw any app anywhere on your device. The Oreo update also includes the Project Treble, which will make it easier for the device manufacturers to upgrade their devices on the latest version of Android.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will also get the Oreo update but the S8 is going to get it earlier. The Galaxy S7 and S7 edge will also get the Oreo update but Samsung might take a few months to push the update for them.
