About 1.6 GB update it is which I got shortly after registering for the beta test last night in the Samsung members app. Though it's beta it's running fine so far. SM-N950F (Note 8) models should have it. I haven't had any data losses the phone is working fine, I use the Nova launcher and it's smooth. All settings have remained the same. The dark mode in pie is great. Task manager looks how it is on Apple devices... The apps are horizontally stacked unlike the previous rolodex style.

Installed. Works fine for me. It also supports the latest Dex Mode without the need for a Dex station.

And it is downloading as I type. Hope it works fine.
