Galaxy Note8 on Sprint & Verizon Now Receiving Their Oreo Updates

Just a few days after the Android Oreo update for the Galaxy Note8 began rolling out for AT&T customers, Sprint and Verizon customers are now starting to receive the update.  It means that three of the four major carriers in the United States have begun the updating process for their customers.  Only T-Mobile remains.

For readers who are on Sprint, you are looking for build N950USQU3CRC2 for your Note8.  For those of you on Verizon, the company hasn’t officially announced the update is available so a build number is not known.  However, multiple sources have indicated that Verizon is indeed rolling out the update.

As for the update itself, it doesn’t vary from what was reported earlier in the week when Oreo rolled out for the Galaxy Note8 on AT&T.  You are getting Oreo itself, the March Android Security Update, as well as several software improvements to the device itself.  Further, the update brings Samsung Experience 9, the company’s skin over Oreo.  This is the same version of the Samsung Experience that rolled out with the new Galaxy S9.

Regardless if you are on Sprint or Verizon, you can expect this update to be in the 1.5GB range as far as size is concerned.  Downloading it via WiFi is a must and set aside a good 15-20 minutes after the download to get it installed and to reboot your phone.
