Samsung seems pumped up and it has already rolled out Android Oreo Beta in 3 different batches. The latest third batch of Oreo for Galaxy S8(plus) started seeding a day ago. It came with the build numbers G950FXXU1ZQKG and G955FXXU1ZQKG. However, the update brought along some bugs that would not allow some Apps to open when left unused for some time. So, Samsung is currently rolling a hotfix update for 3rd Oreo Beta that comes with build number G950FXXU1ZQKI and G955FXXU1ZQKI. This will successfully patch up the bugs and fortify the devices.
This debugging update is hitting the devices that have signed up for the Beta program in the UK. Since the Beta rollout was done over US, UK, and Korean regions this patch should drop by the mentioned regions gradually. This particular update is exclusively for plugging the hole in the 3rd Beta of Android O. It doesn’t bring anything else with it. Already the Beta update came loaded with November 2017 security patch.
