Newly-scored Wi-Fi certification brings the Android Oreo update an inch closer to your Galaxy Note 8

Newly-scored Wi-Fi certification brings the Android Oreo update an inch closer to your Galaxy Note 8
The Android Oreo rollout for the Galaxy S8 and S8+ has been postponed due to unexpected reboots on some units, but hopefully the Oreo update for the Galaxy Note 8 could is not being postponed. Actually, a SM-N950F device which is nothing else but the Note 8, has been just recently spotted making rounds on the Wi-Fi Alliance with Android 8.0 on board. 

As all major software updates have to receive a new Wi-Fi certification in order to be officially released to end-users, this could be a very strong indication that Oreo is indeed just around the corner for the sleek phablet.

Hopefully, Samsung is taking its time for no other reason than to ensure Oreo doesn't bring the same kind of woes to Note 8 users that it brought to their Galaxy S8/S8+ users. Indeed, we're certain Sammy wants to be extra careful with the software update for its high-end devices as anything else would give a ton of bad rep, and that's the last thing it needs just days before the Galaxy S9 and S9+ launch next Sunday.

With that said, there's no way of saying when Oreo will grace your Note 8, but hopefully you won't have to wait for too long.
