Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Will Get Android 8.0 Oreo Starting March 30th


Samsung has been issuing new smartphones every year for quite some time now. The latest Samsung Galaxy S series has been released earlier at the Mobile World Congress (MWC), which has been named as Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus. Everybody knows that the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus were launched in 2017. After that, the Galaxy Note 8 was released too with the Android 7.1 Nougat OS.

Samsung is staying silent

The Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus were originally released with Android 7.0 or 7.1 Nougat. Nonetheless, the company has now implemented the latest Android 8.0 Oreo OS, along with the TouchWiz UI for the smartphones but the other leader smartphone from last year was left out of the Oreo update.

Yep, that means the Galaxy Note 8 has not received the Android Oreo update yet. As far as that’s concerned, Samsung has not made any announcement regarding the official Android Oreo update for the Galaxy Note 8 other than it will turn up soon. Don’t fret, however, because we have got news!

New OS

We have received great news for those who own a Samsung Galaxy Note 8. According to Samsung’s official Turkish website, the Galaxy Note 8 will receive the official Android 8.0 Oreo update starting with the 30th of March.

This however does not mean you will get the update on March 30, or anytime close to that, but merely that it will be released in Turkey starting then and then it will arrive in other regions soon enough.

All in all, February should be an interesting month for Samsung enthusiasts especially since the OEM also plans on launching its next flagship series – the Galaxy S9 – at Mobile World Congress on February 25.
