T-Mobile pushes new update to the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, see what's new


A new update has started rolling out for Samsung Galaxy Note 8 owners that purchased their device from T-Mobile. With a file size of about 316MB, the software upgrade should bump the version of the 6.3-inch phablet to N950USQU2BQLA.

After installation, users will get updates for video calls/conferencing, T-Mobile's DIGITS (the service that allows you to use a single phone number on multiple devices), and various unspecified system improvements. Also included is the Android Security patch for the month of December. 

We've seen multiple reports of unlocked Note 8 units on T-Mo's network not being able to make video calls from the default dialer, so hopefully, the update will address this issue. If you have such a handset, feel free to let us know if you've noticed anything different after the patch.

The update is available OTA, but it might need some time to reach all compatible devices. You can check for it manually by going to Settings > About Device > Software Updates. As always, make sure that your phone is sufficiently charged and connected to a Wi-Fi network before proceeding with the patch.
