Samsung Galaxy Note8 Oreo update starts seeding

Himanshu, 05 January 2018

The Samsung Galaxy Note8 has apparently started getting the final Oreo update even before the Galaxy S8 series (which has been testing an Oreo beta for a while now). The tech giant hasn't officially announced the roll out yet, someone over at Reddit posted screenshots of their Android 8-powered Note8. This suggests that this is probably a soak test and only if that goes smoothly Samsung will begin wider rollout.

The unit that got the update is Exynos-powered. The update carries a build number of R16NW.N950FXXU2CRA1.DM, and bumps the Android security level to January.

We also got a partial change-log for the update. Take a look:

I've taken part in the S8 Oreo Beta project. Nice touch that Samsung involve their faithful customers in sharing their software development. Oreo so far? Not seen much difference TBH, we'll see when the finished result gets rolled out.

Better late than never, they're doing a decent job updating a lot of their phones to the latest version.
