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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
