Why only S8 & S8+ Testing Android Oreo?

devicemanager

    I am currently a T-Mobile Customer and i've been testing Android Oreo on my Note8 for the last 2-3 months.  Is the Android Oreo builds being tested internally or externally?  With the Galaxy Note8 being Smartphone of the year and Samsung's Flagship Device, i do not understand why the Note8 wouldnt receive testing first.  I'm just glad i have the ability to run Oreo betas on my Note8 just because i know how....

        That's up to Samsung, and the Note 8 requires more development as there are additional things to code for.  So the S8/S8+ should be finished sooner.  Samsung may have beta's available but that's their own internal testing, and not T-Mobile testing to ensure it does no harm to their network, and the features they pay Samsung to add works.

          The people who can participate in the beta are selected and with with Samsung on. T-Mobile doesn't control the beta but allows it's customers to participate unlike other us carriers.
