Samsung Galaxy S8 Android 8.0 Oreo ChangeLog

Galaxy S8 Android 8.0 Oreo

Samsung 为 Galaxy S8 推出了 Android 8.0 Oreo 的升级,内里除了有 Android 8.0 本身的改进,还有不少 Samsung 自家的改动,例如 Samsung Experience 9.0。Samsung 就在官方网站详列出 Android 8.0 Oreo 升级的完整 Changelog。

Changelog 列出了多项改动,下面介绍一些较为特别的。
生物认证 – 当装置只使用非安全性的屏幕锁,生物认证解锁或 Apps 内认证如 Samsung Pay 就会被暂停。生物认证只会于采用安全锁屏 (Pattern, Pin, Password) 才会提供。

Samsung Keyboard – 支援 GIF

Edge screen – 改进字号颜色,提升 Edge Panel 可视度,并加入三个 Edge Lighting Effects

Smart View – 当装置正在其他屏幕进行 Mirror 投放时,装置屏幕会自动转暗

Samsung account – 可为多个 Apps 管理 Samsung 帐户和设定

Samsung Dual Messenger – 可将通讯 App 安装两个复本,同时使用两个帐户

Find My Mobile – 当遗失手机时,可以遥控将 Secure Folder 备份至 Samsung Cloud

To improve your security, features that use biometrics (face, fingerprints, and irises) are only available when you use a secure screen lock type (pattern, PIN, or password). When you switch to a non-secure screen lock type (Swipe or None), biometric authentication is suspended for unlocking and for verification in apps like Samsung Pay and Samsung Pass. If you’re using biometrics now without a secure screen lock type, you’ll be able to continue after the upgrade, but changing to a secure screen lock type is recommended.
