AT&T is updating its Samsung Galaxy Note 8 to Android Oreo

AT&T is updating its Samsung Galaxy Note 8 to Android Oreo
A few days ago, Samsung said that all Galaxy Note 8 units (unlocked and carrier models) in the US would be updated to Android 8 Oreo in 2-3 weeks. Today, perhaps sooner than many users had expected, AT&T became the first carrier to deliver Oreo to the Note 8. 

The Android 8 Oreo update that AT&T is rolling out over the air weighs in at a bit over 1.4 GB, and includes the Samsung Experience 9.0 UI - the same that you’ll find on the brand new Galaxy S9 and S9+ out of the box. The update also brings Google’s latest security patch (for March). 

While many AT&T Note 8 owners are reporting that they’ve received the Oreo update, it may happen that not all users will get it today. You can manually check to see if the update is available on your phone by going to Settings > Software update > Check for updates. 

Most probably, T-Mobile, Verizon, and Sprint are also close to updating their Samsung Galaxy Note 8 units to Oreo. We’ll be here to let you know when that happens.

Wow!! AT&T a first! congratulation to those Note 8 owners your wait is over. However In my opinion this did not add much feature wise that the Note 8 did not already sport out of the box but he security updates are always a plus.
