Samsung Galaxy Note 8 start receiving Android 8.0 Oreo update

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 start receiving Android 8.0 Oreo update

Phones in France may have been the first to enjoy these updates, but users in other countries would most likely receive the update for Note 8 soon.

Rumors from various outlets hinted a March release date for the Android 8.0 Oreo which seems to be accurate given the recent reports. The update brings many peculiar features to the device. The Oreo update will bring features such as Auto-form filling, new Quick Settings, customised Settings menu, Notification dots, updated notification panel and much more. The company has delayed enough to release this update for their phones as they were working on a new Experience 9 which is company's own customUI created to work alongside the Android 8.0 Oreo update. To recall, a Samsung Turkey website had last week indicated the Galaxy Note 8 would start receiving its Android 8.0 Oreo update from March 30 - it appears the rollout has begun slightly early, or the company has started the rollout with a limited number of users.

Since the S8 and the Note 8 had similar software and hardware, the update for Note 8 had to be pushed back. The baseband version for the Note8's Android 8.0, also known as Samsung Experience 9.0, is N950FXXU3CRC1. It's best to have a fully charged battery before loading the update on any device. It features 6.3-inch 2K Super AMOLED Infinity display. The main difference between Galaxy Note 8 and Galaxy S8 and S8+ is the S-Pen stylus. The smartphone is powered by the company's Exynos 8895 processor with 6GB RAM.

Samsung Mobile CEO DJ Koh had earlier confirmed that the company "will be able to unveil Bixby 2.0" during the launch the Galaxy Note 9. The front camera is 8MP with f/1.7 aperture. This is a 4G-LTE enabled smartphone, and it is dust and water-resistant with an IP68 rated.
