Samsung gives away Note 8 to all 200 passengers in a flight

Samsung found the most interesting way to remind us of the Note 7 Samsung to Begin Rolling Out Android Oreo for its Smartphones Only by Early 2018

After launching Galaxy Note 8 and Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, Samsung is now focusing on the future release of the Galaxy S9.

The biggest smartphone company, in a bid to move on from failure of the fire-prone Note 7 devices, gave away its latest Samsung Android flagship units for free to around 200 people onboard a passenger flight in Spain.

The Samsung Pay update coincided with a new rumour claiming that Samsung was planning to start an Android 8.0 Oreo Beta Programme in the United States on October 31. To underscore that point, Samsung has packed some kid-friendly content onto the tablet, including a dedicated Kids Mode with access to 5,000 exclusive videos and games.

As the information isn't coming directly from Samsung, it's not certain just yet, so don't get your hopes too high just yet.

Samsung, which holds a majority share in the Android market, has stated that it is working on its Android Oreo update and will start rolling it out early next year. Samsung will probably take into consideration the releases of other rival smartphones, before making the debut of Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus.

A message in Spanish on the Galaxy Note 8 box reads: "A year ago we asked you to turn it off, we welcome you today on board".

The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ Android 8.0 updates recently popped up in benchmarks, a sign that they're in testing behind the scenes. All airlines had banned Note 7 on airplanes, Samsung had called back all the Note 7's and had to scrap all of them. Samsung is in partnership with Spain's flag carrier to promote the South Korean tech giant's high-end smartphone.
