Galaxy Note 8 Oreo Update: 7 Reasons to Get Excited & 2 Not To



Your Galaxy Note 8 Oreo Update Could Be Weeks Away

Your Galaxy Note 8 Oreo Update Could Be Weeks Away

The first Galaxy Note 8 Oreo update is just over the horizon, but most Galaxy Note 8 updates are several weeks away. Here's why. 

Samsung recently released the March security patch for the Note 8 without Oreo so you will most likely see that update emerge before you see Android Oreo. 

It's also worth noting that Samsung doesn't operate like Apple where software updates come to everyone at once. It typically takes several months for Samsung and its carrier partners to deploy major Android software updates across the globe. 

Samsung's testing the Galaxy Note 8 Oreo update behind the scenes, but carriers like T-Mobile still need the software in order to test and to implement changes of their own. 

Some carriers, like T-Mobile and Rogers in Canada, are great about keeping their customers informed about their software testing. Other carriers, like AT&T and Verizon, keep their customers in the dark for weeks while they test software. 

Fido believes it'll get the software out in March, but vocal carriers like Rogers and Telus remain silent about their Galaxy Note 8 Oreo updates. This means a release could still be weeks away. We typically see these carriers confirm their plans well in advance. 

If you don't own a Galaxy Note 8 in a major market on a popular or communicative carrier, the road to Oreo might be a little bumpy.

    After reading the article, I can’t see a single reason to update to Oreo. My phone works too good to screw it up over a bunch of cosmetics and gimmicks. I don’t think a typical Note 8 user cares what Emojis are included, or what colors you can make the screen. We buy Note phones because they have real functionality you cannot get with any other phone.
