The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Android Pie update is weeks away, but we already know quite a bit about the new operating system.

Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8 was among the first to Android Oreo, but it won’t be first to Samsung’s upcoming Android 9.0 Pie update.

The Galaxy Note 8 is no longer a flagship device which means it’s no longer at the top of Samsung’s software pecking order.

The Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9+, and Galaxy Note 9 are Samsung’s flagship models which means they’ll get Android Pie before the likes of the Galaxy Note 8 and Galaxy S8.

The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy Note 9 Pie updates have both leaked and the Galaxy S9 Android Pie beta is imminent as we push into November.

While the Galaxy Note 8 won’t be Samsung’s first device to Android Pie, it should be part of the second wave of Samsung’s Android 9.0 Pie updates. We also expect the former flagship to get at least some of the upgrades Samsung brings to the Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy S9.

We don’t have Samsung’s official Android Pie change log just yet, but thanks to some announcements and Galaxy S9/Galaxy Note 9 Android Pie leaks we know what the company’s new operating system looks like.

Samsung’s Android Pie update is slated to bring significant UI changes to Galaxy devices and it looks like the Galaxy Note 8 will get most of them.

We’re weeks away from the Galaxy Note 8 Pie update’s release, but there are some reasons to get excited about the next big update for your device.

There are also some things that have the potential disappoint Galaxy Note 8 users and we’ll highlight those here in this guide.

We don't have an official Android Pie change log for the Galaxy Note 8 but you can expect the update to bring bug fixes, enhancements, and security patches. 

Some of these changes will come from Samsung itself, others will come from your carrier. Carriers always tack on their own fixes and enhancements to major updates like Android Pie.
