T-Mobile has begun sending out an OTA update for the Galaxy Note8 on their network that brings a handful of improvements and fixes to the phablet. The new version is build N950USQU1AQ15 for those keeping score at home and the over-the-air updates have already begun. It is a small download, just 198MB.
The update brings the August Android Security Update to the Note8 along with a lot of stability improvements. Most of the improvements are aimed at individual apps but there are also general improvements to be found in the update.
That said, don’t look for any new features in this update. This release is all about improvement security, performance and stability on the Galaxy Note8.
The update is rolling out now and you should get prompted to do the update on your phone. You can always check for updates in the Settings of the Note8 to manually force the issue.
The Note8 has done exceptionally well for Samsung and for the carriers here in the US like T-Mobile. Sales have been brisk and it seems that the disaster that was the Note7 are a distant memory now. T-Mobile is still overing a buy-one-get-one free program that allows you to buy a Note8 and get another Note8, Galaxy S8 or S8 Plus at no charge. Check out their site for more details.
