Custom ROM brings Android 13 to Samsung Galaxy S7, S8, Note 8

Owned by Xda developer Ivan Meler Collect a custom Android 13 tweak for Samsung Galaxy S7And the S8 and Note 8. It is an upgraded version of LineageOS 20.0, which is based on Android 13.

Meler put the ROMs online last week, but they seem surprisingly stable for the first build. Wifi, Bluetooth, audio, GPS, and fingerprint scanner work normally. Storage encryption just isn’t working yet, and neither is the Note 8’s camera.


Android 13 (LineageOS 20.0) on S8.

Android 13 was released last month for Google Pixel devices and a number of Oppo smartphones. However, most smartphone owners will have to wait a little longer for the update, if their phone is already eligible. In the case of Samsung, the Galaxy S10 Lite appears to be the “oldest” upgraded device.

For S7, S8, and Note 8, you will have to deal with these custom ROMs. If the device is the “Daily Driver”, it is recommended to wait a little longer for LineageOS 20.0 to be officially released; Assuming historical release dates, that would be around April next year. Obviously flashing a custom ROM has risks.
