    BREAKING: Stable Galaxy Note 8 Android Pie update released

    Firmware
    By 

    Last updated: February 15th, 2019 at 10:10 UTC+01:00

    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.

    Samsung's new Dynamic AMOLED 2X screens for the Galaxy S24, S24+, and S24 Ultra are fantastic in our experience, providing superior image quality, colors, contrast, and brightness levels in all lighting conditions.

    Samsung’s Modes and Routines is sorely lacking device ecosystem features

    I've been a fan of Samsung's Modes and Routines tool for years, but the feeling that it could use a few more options never went away. In fact, as my Samsung device ecosystem expanded, that feeling became more prominent. Granted, you can create plenty of fun and useful automations when you pair a Samsung smart […]

    Samsung better not remove Notification Categories in One UI!

    The Notification Categories feature is among the most useful and well-integrated One UI elements. I'd go as far as to say it's probably underrated, but that doesn't really bother me as long as the feature exists and remains a part of One UI. To be frank, the thought that Samsung might be preparing to remove […]
