Samsung Galaxy Note 8 (US) will be updated to Android Oreo in 2-3 weeks
Folks owning US unlocked versions of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy S8, or Galaxy S8+ should know that their phones will soon be updated to Android 8 Oreo. More exactly, according to Samsung, the company plans to roll out Oreo updates to all eligible Galaxy Note 8, S8 and S8+ units “within the next 2-3 weeks.” 

As you may know, carrier versions of the Galaxy S8 and S8+ have already been updated to Oreo at Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint, and AT&T. We assume/hope that all carriers will update the Galaxy Note 8, too, within the 2-3 weeks timeframe mentioned by Samsung. 

Samsung says that software update processes for its unlocked smartphones take a bit longer because these devices must go through more tests - in order to ensure proper functionality on all supported networks. 

In case you’re wondering, for now, Samsung doesn’t mention when the third member of its S8 series - the Galaxy S8 Active - will receive Android Oreo. Hopefully, it’ll happen soon.
