With the Galaxy Note 8’s Oreo release date apparently set for March, it’s important to start preparing yourself, and your Galaxy Note 8, for Android 8.0’s arrival. A little prep work will go a long way toward preventing headaches and problems.
In this guide we’ll walk you through some things we think you should do before the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Android Oreo release date arrives for your device.
For some of you, this will take less than 30 minutes. For others, it’ll take a lot longer.
Start Preparing Right Now
We don't have an official Galaxy Note 8 Android Oreo release date, but don't let that stop you from doing some early prep work.
There are a few things you can do while you wait for the Android Oreo update to arrive for your Galaxy Note 8. If you take these steps ahead of time you won't be scrambling to do them when the update lands for your device.
Use the free time you have to dig into your Galaxy Note 8's storage and delete any files you no longer need. This will help make room for Android Oreo (we expect it to be a hefty download) and it could speed up your Galaxy Note 8.
We also recommend regularly backing up your device's data if you aren't doing so already. You'll want to make sure everything on your Galaxy Note 8 is backed up before you download Android Oreo. This could prevent major headaches.
You can backup your files using the Samsung Smart Switch application and/or Samsung Cloud.
Samsung Cloud is located in Settings > Cloud and Accounts. If you don't have a Samsung account, you'll need one to use these features.
You should also make sure to track down all of your login information before the update rolls out to your Galaxy Note 8.
There's always a chance the update logs you out of your apps and services so you'll want to have that information handy, particularly if you rely on said apps and services to get through the day.
With a release now all but confirmed for March, now's a great time to start prepping yourself and your device for Oreo.
