Saw this as well, good news, but all that means ( I believe ) is that Telus is just GETTING Oreo, to start their in-house testing.
It would be nice to be surprised, and find they had it for testing already, and they are permitted to release on that date. And I guess this is possible due to Fido having Oreo release in March on their update schedule.
I guess time will tell. It would be great if Telus folks actually read and replied to these posts so their loyal customers weren't left in the dark.
Verizon in the USA just started rolling out Oreo to the Samsung S8 and S8+ 2 hours ago.

Hopefully, this is good news and we can expect it sooner than later on Telus. Again it would be nice if the Telus MODS here, gave us at least some glimmer of hope,
Ha ha ha! GOOD JOB TELUS!
Way to get the update scheduled updated AFTER the fact ONCE again!
Yes, Telus moved to listing Updates once released, rather than pre-announcing & having to change the dates, and deal with expectations of users. This happened at least a year ago.
No it just gives us s7 edge users kind of a time frame before or if we ever get the update... not holding my breath but if something doesn't happen soon i am going to torture test the phone.. bet will be if it survives the auto rundown .... 4x4 and mini-van get to take turns at it.... then the tiger torch gets to have it's way with it....sounds kind of harsh to destroy a flagship phone but mine is a piece of s**t and i will not defend the phone anymore...
Not sure if it will blend.... don't want to destroy a blender for the sake of a POS phone... but i know it WILL melt when i decide to engage it with the tiger torch.... give a new meaning of phone explosions.... but to be fair the phone is a great texting, and picture taker but for calls it just plain sucks i think i may have gotten a defective phone but being out of replacement time frame i am stuck with it so i do own it and yes when i find a replacement for it i will systematically dissect it and put it in a melting pot
Any reason as to why? Essential released 8.1 nearly a month and a half ago citing the reason 8.0 was never released was due to stability issue. I would suspect that means things are okay. How come there is exactly zero update? Is it because Sprint and TELUS had exclusive rights to these phones in their respective markets? OTA on the open market has been fine for an extended period now. Don't really want to resort to side-loading but if it means getting on the latest (basically already outdated) software then so be it.
@TanBurrito I have noticed that people on Telus/Koodo have resorted to getting a Rogers SIM to get various updates. From my experience, Telus has lagged behind other major carriers since I can remember, and I've been on Telus since the days of the Motorola brick phone. The comment section of the link below is interesting.
