Samsung releases first software update for the Galaxy Note 8

Samsung releases first software update for the Galaxy Note 8


With two days left until the Galaxy Note 8 is officially released (September 15), Samsung is sending a software update to the handset - at least in Europe.  

 

According to the screenshot seen on the right

Samsung releases first software update for the Galaxy Note 8
(in Dutch), the very first Note 8 update weighs in at 571 MB, and doesn't change the Android version of the phone - it's still 7.1.1 Nougat. The update brings overall performance enhancements, improvements related to wireless charging, and improved camera stability. 


Unfortunately, the update doesn't seem to include Google's Android security patch for September, but we assume this will be available in the near future anyway.

 

If you've pre-ordered a Samsung Galaxy Note 8 in the US and you're waiting for it to arrive, you might see that this update is available to download once you receive the phone and you're powering it on.

 

Needless to say, the Galaxy Note 8 will not run Android Nougat for long, as it will be updated to Android 8 Oreo at some point. However, Samsung hasn't shared specific details about this.

Thank God I have Bixby, I could translate it with my camera. It's Dutch and it's about performance and bugs fixes, nothing interesting. Had to try it, lol

Samsung website says 4k 60fps video recording for the note 8 all of the sudden. Could the camera improvements in this update be about that??
Someone who has a note 8 should check out if it's so after the update

Still only see 4K 30fps on their global site, where did you get that?
