After what seemed to many like an eternity, the AT&T Galaxy Note 8 Oreo update is rolling out today for Samsung's flagship phablet. Multiple users on Reddit have confirmed to have received the update for the Galaxy Note 8 on its network. AT&T. AT&T was the last carrier to release Oreo for the Galaxy S8 has now become the first to release this update for the Galaxy Note 8. Kudos to AT&T for that.
Last week, Samsung had confirmed on its official support forums that the Android 8.0 Oreo update would be out for all variants of the Galaxy Note 8 in the United States in the next two to three weeks. The update would be out for both carrier-locked and unlocked variants of the devices.
It has also made a similar promise for the unlocked Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ in the United States. The handsets have received Oreo on all four major carriers but the unlocked version is yet to receive the update. Samsung attributes the delay to additional testing across all networks that unlocked variants are compatible with.
AT&T is now rolling out firmware version N950USQU3CRC2 for the Galaxy Note 8 over the air. As expected, it weighs in at 1.4GB since it’s a major Android platform update. The update is being rolled out gradually so it might take a while for it to go live for all users.
The AT&T Galaxy Note 8 Oreo update brings a handful of new features including but not limited to Autofill, notification dots, picture-in-picture mode and more. The complete changelog of the update is available here.
AT&T users in the US can now pull the update manually, by heading over to the Software update menu in the Settings app. We can expect other carriers to release Oreo for this handset shortly.
