I would love to use the latest features on my S8! The last update left me on android 8.0 and Samsung experience 9.0. I would love to have the latest possible android version, so I could utilise all the good features of good lock labs and other stuff 😁.

P.S. What is Samsung Experience version and how is it different to the Android version?

Samsung experience is just the name of Samsung's skin they put on top of Android they ditched Samsung Experience in favour of One UI

Unfortunately though software support for the S8 has now ended,will not receive any security updates.  Whilst S8 Lite and S8 Active still on the list expected to end around September.  https://www.notebookcheck.net/No-more-updates-Samsung-ends-software-support-for-the-Galaxy-S8-and-S8...    https://www.theverge.com/2021/5/4/22419205/samsung-galaxy-s8-security-update-schedule

It's a pity really as the S8+ is my oldest currently used Samsung phone and would love to have OneUI 3.1 on it. Even my old Tab A 10.1 got the latest update to OneUI 3.1 and so far it's been a pretty good improvement on system performance, not to mention it brings it in line with all my other newer Samsung devices.

try xda developers forum, someone may port Android 11 unofficially via a custom ROM. LineageOS for example would be really quick on it.
