Fourth Galaxy Note 8 Android Pie beta update rolling out


Last updated: February 12th, 2019 at 09:24 UTC+02:00

Samsung has released a new Android Pie beta update for the Galaxy Note 8 today. This is the fourth beta release for the device and Samsung seems to have fixed most of the issues that remained, as the changelog for the latest update only mentions one major bugfix. This is a good indication that Samsung is currently on track to release the official Galaxy Note 8 Pie update in February.

As usual, even if the beta concludes in the next week or so, not every country will get the official update this month. The rollout will probably take a few weeks to complete, although it should be faster than rollouts of previous major Android OS updates, given how Samsung went about with the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy Note 9 Pie updates. The best way to check when you can expect the update in your country is to check out the notices section of the Samsung Members app.

The new Galaxy Note 8 Pie beta is a 577 MB download and is available over the air right now. To download it on your Note 8, open the Settings app, tap Software update, then tap Download and install. Once installed, the software version on the phone will be bumped to N950FXXU5ZSB2.
