Verizon rolls out Android 8.0 Oreo to the Samsung Galaxy Note 8

Verizon rolls out Android 8.0 Oreo to the Samsung Galaxy Note 8
Although Samsung promised to bring Android 8.0 Oreo to Galaxy Note 8 smartphones in the United States in 2-3 weeks, it appears that some carriers have already decided to push out the update.

AT&T was the first US carrier to roll out Android 8.0 Oreo for the Galaxy Note 8, and now it looks like Verizon is next. Reports coming from Verizon Galaxy Note owners suggest the Big Red has just started the Android 8.0 Oreo roll-out.

The carrier hasn't yet updated the phone's support page, but the size of the update (1GB+) somewhat confirms that this is indeed the highly-anticipated Android 8.0 Oreo update.

Along with Android 8.0 Oreo, Verizon might have included the March security patch as well. The only thing left for us to determine is what other changes the update brings into the mix. I guess we'll learn more about that once Verizon posts the full changelog.

Must be a Verizon thing with security update. With ATT you get March security update.
