T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is receiving the Android Oreo update
Last week was a big week for the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 on US carriers. It started off with the AT&T model getting the Android Oreo update. A couple of days later, the Verizon and Sprint models joined the party. That only left T-Mobile as the last major US carrier to deliver the update. T-Mobile is usually not the last to send major updates, but they got beat out this time. Thankfully, the update is rolling out now.
The update comes in at 1.3GB in size and brings the firmware build up to CRC2, just like with the other carrier models. This is the Android 8.0 update and it also includes the March security patch. Of course, you can expect all the typical Oreo features. Notification channels, picture-in-picture mode, notification snoozing, background app optimizations, and more. The update also brings Samsung Experience up to version 9.0.
The update officially started rolling out on April 1st. T-Mobile has listed the update on their website, but they don’t include much of a changelog. As always, you can manually check for the update by heading to Settings > Software update. All of the US carrier models of the Note 8 have been updated to Oreo. The unlocked Snapdragon model is still waiting for the update.
