Install for This New Always On Display Feature

Samsung's updated the Galaxy Note 8's Always On Display with a new feature that reportedly requires Android 8.0 Oreo

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 can now take advantage of a feature that was originally exclusive to the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+. That feature? GIF support for AOD.

On Android Nougat, GIFs on the Always on Display would appear static. With this update, you can now see GIFs in action when the phone is idle. 

GIF animations run just once, likely to help conserve your phone's battery, but you can always double tap them to watch again. 

In order to get the update, you'll need to open up the Galaxy Apps store and tap the three-dot button on the top right of the screen.

From there you need to select My Apps then select Update. Locate Always On Display on the list and select update again. 

Once you've got it installed, head to your Settings > Lock screen and security » Always On Display. You'll then need to select either the Clock or Home button and clock under Content to Show.

Go back to Lock screen and security menu and choose Clock and FaceWidgets. Tap on Clock Style. From there, you'll need to select one of the preloaded GIF animations or you can opt to select one of your own.

Wait for More Information

Wait for More Information

If you're interested in buying the next-gen Galaxy S model, you might want to wait a few more months before making a decision to buy or wait. 

Right now, we don't have any concrete information. The Galaxy S20 series, along with the Galaxy Note 20, will dominate headlines for weeks to come. 

That said we should start hearing more about the Galaxy S21 series later in the year as Samsung's ramps up development. 

As Galaxy S21 rumors pickup speed and become more credible, you'll be able to make an informed decision about waiting. 

If you aren't thrilled with the devices on shelves right now and/or you aren't in desperate need of a new smartphone, there's no reason to force something. 

Some of you might want to sit back and see which direction Galaxy S21 rumors go in the months ahead.
