BREAKING: Stable Galaxy Note 8 Android Pie update released

The weekend brings good tidings for Galaxy Note 8 owners, at least those in Bulgaria and Slovakia, as Samsung is now rolling out the official Android Pie update for the 2017 Note in these markets. The update is currently available over the air, but we don’t have any other information at the moment. For those wondering, Bulgaria and Slovakia are not part of the Galaxy Note 8 beta program, but the stable update is also available for beta users right away.

The stable update comes with software version N950FXXU5DSB2 and includes the February 2019 security patch (which was also available on the beta). We’re installing the update on our Note 8 as we write this, so we’ll have information on what’s new or changed in the stable release soon. Samsung isn’t giving us a proper changelog, so we’re guessing it’s probably not different from the last beta release and will only serve to change the software version.

To download the update on your Note 8, open the Settings app on the phone, tap Software update, then tap the Download and install option (for those on Oreo, this option is called Download updates manually). We’ll let you know once we have the stable Android Pie firmware for the Note 8 in our database.

Have you received the official Android Pie update on your Galaxy Note 8? Do tell us in the comments, and don’t forget to mention what country you’re in if the update is available for you.

Is there anyone who has problem with the stock camera app on the stabel Pie build ? When I try to get into the settings it simply jumps out of it. Also did a storage and cache clear,have the same problem.

I live in Brazil, but i´ve installed the bulgarian version and so far it´s working fine (it works on portuguese). I have already installed a different version (country-wise) for Oreo and never had any issue. So far so good.

Android Pie update is available for Note 8 Slovak users. Nice… but… Note 9 users have to wait for Pie update. I find it absurd.

” We’ll let you know once we have the stable Android Pie firmware for the Note 8 in our database.”

So where did you get that firmware ?

YES! I knew it was going to come out around now… Now we just have to wait on the carriers. Since they seem to be pushing it out very quickily- the S9 S9+ and Note 9 are already getting the update now on carriers. Note 8 should be coming out very soon. I give it maybe 2 weeks or towards the end of Feburary.

the build is the same as the latest beta (4) firmware. So nothing changed. Also, when u on the beta 4, you do NOT get the “stable” version via OTA cause the system thinks you already have it since the build numbers/basebands/etc are the same.

Dear very intelligent guy,
Beta firmwares have the letter Z on their build, so people like you have to learn and researh first, then talk nonsense here trying to get some attention.
All the best.

No, NOT shame Samsung: blame your operators (they must approve it first before it can be released)

Yep! I can confirm it. I’m just hesitant to update for now. I guess I’ll wait for the braver owners of Note8 to try it and share their experience 🙂
