Let's kick this off then.

 

Is there anyone from Samsung who can provide us with some information regarding rollout schedules for Oreo on the S8/+. There are plenty of us who have gone through the whole beta process and now feel a little bit high and dry.

 

The update is obviously complete as several countries have received the update.

 

Some news please

Samsung Beta testers in the UK gave their time and effort for free. 

Samsung have made a serious mistake here and it will cost them both with loyalty and money. 

Samsung posted that beta testers would get the Oreo update " one day before non testers ". 

They simply used the good nature and precious time of all the testers to test their next money making software and have shown that loyalty does not pay while they move forward and make more money. 

It's not the fact the software has not been issued it's the slap in the face to all the people they used to get there software right and as I've said it will cost them dearly.

As a beta tester for the S8 in the UK id like to vent my displeasure at being lied too! You told us all we would get the official Oreo update a day before non beta users! This was a lie and you have released it to others around the globe who didnt even take part in the beta! Thats a sure fire way to alienate your long running customers. It happened last year with UK beta testers. Im getting tired of spending more and more on your products and getting less and less customer service from you. This may be the first time in a long while that i actually contemplate buying from a different Android manufacturer. Well done Samsung. It would be interesting to know how many others feel the same!!

I agree with everything you have said in your post, l also think it was wrong of Samsung to release the final version of oreo to the general public before releasing it to all the beta testers shameful of you Samsung

This gets more and more bizarre. The Oreo rollout has been halted according to Sammobile!

Let's hope it's for 8.1 as the notification for system in 8.0 is horrible no idea why Samsung chose to leave it when you remove a notification from the notification panel it also clears the dots should have been made to leave the dots on the apps, the way it is in 8.0 cheap release is a step backwards in terms of notifications.

Not confirmed yet, but it looks like the reports earlier this week that the Netherlands will be receiving the update next week actually referred to this new version of the firmware.

The reason it's been halted is because Samsung is thinking of introducing project treble on this update. Let the rumours roll for now.

That's not ture Samsung have already stated that project treble would not be part of its Oreo update for the S8/S8+ but may be used some time in the future

They have changed their mind like in many other cases. You can't hold them for what they say and do for example this thread.
