Samsung Galaxy S5 Android Firmware Update on Android Oreo?

If you still own a Samsung Galaxy S5 and now have heard the news about Android Oreo, you might wonder if there will be a firmware update for your smartphone. Here we would like to give you a brief overview of the situation and what you can do.

A firmware update from Samsung to Android Oreo is no longer planned for the Samsung Galaxy S5. This means that the currently installed Android version on your Samsung Galaxy S5 is the most current. That's a pity, but Samsung provides after two years of firmware support for its smartphones. Since the Samsung Galaxy S5 is more than two years old, there is no Android Oreo update anymore.

This means that you now only have the following option to update the Samsung Galaxy S5 to Android Oreo:

  • Custom ROM -Lineage

With this custom Rome it is possible to install Android 8.0 Oreo on the Samsung Galaxy S5. However, this ROM is currently being developed, so you have to be patient.

So you now know that it is quite possible to update the Samsung Galaxy S5 to the latest Android Oreo. Have fun with this great smartphone.
