Why hasn’t my Galaxy Note 8 received Oreo yet? How to fix this

A month after the first Galaxy S8 Oreo update rolled out, Samsung started dishing out the same dessert to the Galaxy Note 8. The update has since spread wings to multiple markets across the globe, including the U.S. and India, among others.

However, software updates take time, sometimes days or weeks, and in cases of major OS upgrades, months before they arrive on all units in question. This is perhaps the reason your Galaxy Note 8 is still running on Android Nougat close to three months since the device started receiving Oreo.

While you can always sit back and wait for the OTA notification to show up on your phone, there’s an alternative route you can take and this route is why we have prepared this post. We don’t want you to keep on envying your friends who have already received Oreo on their Note 8 handset while you don’t know when you’ll get it.

Rather than wait, you can download and install the latest Oreo-based firmware on your Galaxy Note 8 manually. To access the firmware, hit the link below.

It’s worth noting that the Galaxy Note 8 has multiple variants sold in different markets. Each variant has a specific model number. Before downloading the firmware, make sure that the software version in question matches the phone’s model number.
