Galaxy Note8 in the UK gets first update since September

Vlad, 08 January 2018

Certain owners of Samsung's Galaxy Note8 may already be receiving Android 8.0 Oreo in some parts of the world, but if you live in the UK and purchased your handset unlocked the situation is very different. The SIM-free Note8 units in Britain haven't been graced with a software update of any kind since last September.

While they're still not getting Oreo, today a new release has finally become available for the unlocked Note8 in the UK. It brings with it the December 1 security patch level, as well as the Secure Wi-Fi feature and improvements for the Live Focus functionality. As usual, you can expect an assortment of unnamed bug fixed to have made the cut too.

The new firmware version is N950FXXU2BQKG but at the moment it only appears to be available through SmartSwitch. It comes in at 3.7GB. Hopefully the over-the-air rollout is due to start soon. If you're impatient, you can of course decide to use SmartSwitch to install the software.
