Samsung Galaxy Note8 Android 8.0 Oreo Firmware Upgrade, Out Now in the Philippines

Samsung has just started seeding Android 8.0 Oreo firmware upgrade to Samsung Galaxy Note8 units here in the Philippines.

I got the software update notification on my Smart-locked phablet last April 5, 2018 -- but some of my readers who also own this smartphone told me that they were able to get it a couple of days prior.


If own a Note8 and you still haven't gotten the upgrade alarm, you can manually check if it's already available by going to Settings > Software update > Download updates manually.

The Samsung Experience 9.0 upgrade files, which brings a fresh version of Android OS, weigh exactly 1471.26 MB.

Some of the key new features or enhancements that come with the new operating systems include:

1. New clock styles for the lock screen and Always On display
2. Improved performance and battery life via limited background services
3. Running apps list in the notification panel
4. High-contrast and GIF keyboard options
5. Touch and hold function for app icons on home screen to show common tasks
6. Improved Edge Screen look and functionality
7. Samsung Dual Messenger for installing a second copy of a supported messaging app so you can be on two accounts at the same time
8. Improved Samsung Cloud management
9. Fingerprint or Face Unlock biometrics only when using secure screen lock type
10. Usage of Note8 screen as touchpad to control Samsung DeX, which now supports multiple display resolutions
