Software update sent to T-Mobile's Samsung Galaxy Note 8

Software update sent to T-Mobile's Samsung Galaxy Note 8
T-Mobile customers sporting the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 should be receiving a new software update, N950USQU1AQ15. The files are right now being sent out OTA and weigh in at 198MB in size. More important, at least as far as you are concerned, is what the update is carrying with it. Well, that appears to include the August Android security patch, and stability improvements for specific individual apps, such as Google Maps.

If you are a T-Mobile customer with the latest version of Samsung's high-end phablet, watch for a notification that the update has arrived. Before you start the process of installing it, make sure that you are connected to a Wi-Fi network, and that the phone's batteries are charged to at least 50%. Since the update is being sent out OTA, it might take some time before it arrives on your Note 8. You can try to manually coax it out of your handset by following the following steps:

  • From the Home screen, swipe up on an empty spot to open the Apps tray.
  • Tap Settings.
  • Tap Software update.
  • Tap Download updates manually.
  • Tap OK.
  • Tap Start.
  • A restart message will appear, tap OK.

In case you're wondering about the September Android security patch (after all, the month is almost over already), T-Mobile is believed to be just weeks away from releasing that update to its Galaxy Note 8 users.
