How to Force download Oreo update OTA on your Galaxy Note 8

This particular update also bundles all of the patches included in this month's Security Maintenance Release (SMR), meant to arm the Galaxy Note 8 with protection against unauthorised remote access attempts, among other things.

The Huawei P10 and P10 Plus launched past year running EMUI 5.1 based on Android 7.1 Nougat, but they are now getting in on some sweet, sweet Oreo via a global OTA update.




Now, we have already reported that the Galaxy Note 8 from Samsung is reported to get the Android 8.0 Oreo update from March 30 as per Samsung Turkey website. But according to a new report from France, the flagship phablet is already getting the update. The new Experience 9 comes with a bunch of advanced features to enhance the original UI of the company and this is how the users of Samsung devices will like about the Oreo update. So, it is not a beta firmware and it is the final version. The Oreo update will bring features such as Auto-form filling, new Quick Settings, customised Settings menu, Notification dots, updated notification panel and much more. The update brings February security patch as well. And of course, plenty of other enhancements to your smartphone. Now there's word that Oreo is rolling out to Galaxy Note8 users in France and possibly some other countries.

Being an OTA update, we understand that it might take a while before it starts to hit your device. (You may want to restart the device first).
