Fourth Galaxy Note 8 Android Pie beta update rolling out

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.

According to the Samsung members thread this is not a snapdragon/US download, we are still on beta 1.
No timeframe for an updated beta release, at least according to the moderators on the members app.

That’s not what several news sources are saying….. It’s being released globally on the 19th and carrier will come out with updates shortly after it. The Samsung Members thread is for other countries so they really don’t know about the US side… Beta 4 is out over here…

Samsung members app in the US is specifically for the pie beta, it came with beta update. No one has gotten the update here past beta 1 that I know of. Samsung itself said we do not get the beta 3/4 according to the app.

Yes! This means it’s on time for Feb 19th release and all the carriers should be rolling out around that time frame…

Note 8 is not in Beta Pie mode of a single tap, but so convenient. Or someone if she knows where to tell me.

Actually, you’re wrong. The update isn’t scheduled for Ferbuary only in USA and Korea. For example it’s scheduled for Ferbuary in Poland too. I think you should think, before saying anything.

The upgrade for 9.0 for the Note 8 is scheduled for Feburary 19th in the US and Korea. And since the beta 4 just came out that means Samsung is on time. Galaxy S8 and S8+ is scheduled for March….

It’s been all over. Samsung announced it in the log for people on the beta and people took screenshots of it. Android Authority got confirmation on it and has a tracker on it. Lists dates for when it’s suppose to come out globally. Feburary 19th for the Note 8 and carriers should be pushing it out between the 19th and early March. S8 and S8+ some time in March. Samsung is on schedule right now.
