Samsung Galaxy Note 8 starts receiving Android 8.0 Oreo update: Report

Less than a week since its launch, the Galaxy S9 already has a custom AOSP ROM based on Android 8.1 Oreo ready to roll. The update carries the build no N950FXXU3CRC1 and also includes March 2018 security patch. It's best to have a fully charged battery before loading the update on any device. With the T-Mobile Galaxy S8 Oreo update, Magenta has taken the second spot on that list.

Rumors from various outlets hinted a March release date for the Android 8.0 Oreo which seems to be accurate given the recent reports. According to an update from a Samsung Turkey website, the Galaxy Note8 is expected to receive its Android 8.0 update on 30 March 2018 while the Galaxy S7/S7 edge is scheduled to receive it around the middle of April. Galaxy S8 owners will be bumped up to software version G950USQU2CRB9, while you Galaxy S8+ users will be moved to software version G955USQU2CRB9. To recall, the Galaxy Note 8 had passed the WFA alliance running Android 8.0 Oreo last month.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 features a "bezel-less" Infinity display and gets dual rear cameras on board as well. It features 6.3-inch 2K Super AMOLED Infinity display. The device runs Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box. The front camera is 8MP with f/1.7 aperture. One of the most interesting features of Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is the Optical Image Stabilization on both the front and the back cameras.

Taking apart the rest of the smartphone revealed to be a challenge for the iFixit team, due to the heavy use of glues to keep components in place and for water resistance.
