Spain's Iberia airline passengers receive free Galaxy Note 8

If the information shared in the following screenshot is to be believed, the South Korean company will launch an Oreo beta program for its Galaxy S8 flagships next week on October 31.

After reports of combustion of Galaxy Note 7 batteries a year ago, Samsung had to scrap all the phablet sets which cost them $5.4 billion in operating profit. This was first reported by XDA developers.

On a flight from Madrid to A Coruna operated by Iberia, the 200 passengers on the plane had never expected that they'd be receiving a free Samsung Note 8 worth $1000.

It seems that Samsung is gearing up to roll out the latest Android 8.0 Oreo update for its smartphones. Apart from these phones, we are not sure, and neither is there any official statement if budget and mid-range phones by the company like - J series, A series, C series or any other will get Oreo sweetness or not.

After discreetly launching the respectable but forgettable Galaxy Tab A (2017) in countries like India or Vietnam, and announcing the ruggedized, business-optimized Galaxy Tab Active2 for "select markets" around the world, the time has come today for Samsung to unveil the Galaxy Tab A (8.0) in the USA with minimal fanfare as well. Needless to say, it is very disappointing that Samsung is going to take nearly half a year to complete the Oreo update rollout even for its flagship models. One of them being the - "allow your applications to open faster". Sign-ups will be carried away via the Samsung Members and Samsung+ apps.

Alongside Samsung, Google is working with other smartphone makers.

Post getting the Oreo update, the smartphones will have picture-in-picture mode that lets users to two tasks simultaneously.
