Samsung Galaxy Note 8 receiving Android Oreo update on Verizon and Sprint
The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 may be on the horizon, but the Galaxy Note 8 is still Samsung’s latest stylus-wielding device. The AT&T model received the Android Oreo update earlier this week and now a couple more U.S. carriers are joining the fun. Reddit users and XDA Forums members are reporting that they’re receiving Android Oreo on Verizon and Sprint.
The update brings the phone up to Android 8.0 Oreo and Samsung Experience 9.0. All the Oreo goodies are in tow, including picture-in-picture, Autofill, notification dots, battery optimizations, and more. The update comes in at 1.4 GB and brings the firmware build up to version CRC2.
As always, you can go to Settings > Software update to see if you can grab the update now. The unlocked Snapdragon model still has a little while to wait before Oreo will be available, but now most of the U.S. carriers are up to date. The Exynos model should already have the Android Oreo update. If not you can manually install it with this tutorial. Sprint and Verizon have not updated their official software release pages yet.
