Galaxy Note8 on AT&T Getting Updated to Android Oreo Today

Good news this morning for Samsung Galaxy Note8 owners on AT&T.  Your Android Oreo update is now rolling out.  The 1.4GB update is build N950USQU3CRC2 for those keeping score at home and has been released by the carrier.  That means devices will start getting updates as soon as today.

And let’s take a moment to give AT&T a bit of credit.  They are notoriously slow at getting updates out to their customers but, in the case of the Note8, they were first.  They beat out Verizon, T-Mobile, and Sprint.  Kudos AT&T!

The Galaxy Note8 will get the new Samsung Experience 9, which is the same UI experience of the new Galaxy S9 series as well as the update S8 lineup.  It also is coming with the March 2018 Android Security Update patch so you will have the latest and greatest as far as security is concerned too.

Other improvements in the update include improvements to the Samsung keyboard, improvements to the Edge screen, support for dual messenger apps (two installs on two different accounts – think of it as app mirroring), and improved notification management.

If you have a Note8 on AT&T, you can manually check for the update by going to Settings>Software Update.  Keep in mind it was just released so it may take a few hours or even a day or two before it gets to everyone.
