The Korean tech giant Samsung just released the Oreo update last month in China. The update was for the Galaxy C9 Pro alongside the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge. However, the update was just a beta release. The rollout seems to have not started and will take more time to arrive.

According to SamMobile, the Wi-Fi Alliance just certified the Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro to come running the Android 8.0 Oreo operating system. Many Galaxy devices have yet to be updated to the operating system. The company first updated this only for all of its eligible mid-range A series phones. Finally, the C series of mid-range devices can now be updated as well.

There is still no official announcement as to when exactly the update will be released and in which market. However, it will not take long to reach every user of this device when the initial rollout begins hopefully. As of now, the phone and other C series lineups are only unveiled in a few countries. The same features and changes as the A series phones have had are expected to be on the device.

Speaking of features, the Android 8.0 Oreo has a new option in Wi-Fi settings. The Wi-Fi turns itself on when the device is near a saved Wi-Fi network through location tracking.  If you are the type of person who tends to forget to turn off the Wi-Fi to conserve the battery power, especially when you are working at an office or away from your house, this feature is very useful.

You will receive a notification every time the device detects a particular Wi-Fi network that is listed in your saved networks on your phone. By default, the feature is disabled, so you need to enable it in your phone’s settings. Let us just hope that the official update will be arriving soon and will be available on the C series phones.
