Galaxy Note 8 Android Pie update released in more markets

The Galaxy Note 8’s Android Pie update started rolling out last Friday in Bulgaria and Slovakia, and it has now reached a number of other countries. Of course, users of the Pie beta had access to the stable update as well, but Samsung has also released the update quickly for those on Android Oreo.

Galaxy Note 8 owners in Iran, Russia, India, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, and a few other Asian markets can download Android Pie right away. The release of the second major new OS update for a flagship this quick is quite impressive, and it’s equally impressive that Samsung hasn’t just limited the release to one or two markets. The Note 8’s Pie update is available in more than 10 countries as we write this, and we can expect the rollout to expand more rapidly in the coming days.

To check if the update is available for your phone, you can open the Settings app on your Note 8, tap Software update, then tap Download updates manually. Our firmware database also has the Android Pie firmware files for the countries where the update has been rolled out, and you can use the firmware for your country to upgrade to Pie if it isn’t available for you over the air.

Don’t forget to check out what’s new and improved in Android Pie in our One UI (Android Pie) feature focus series and leave a comment if the update is available in your country (do tell us which country you’re in).

Don’t update if you have dual sim card installed in your phone. After update my dual sim card disabled with this error message. “Sim card tray slot problem”. Now I am unable to use my second sim which I always us as a network card. If any one knows how to fix this please let me know.

Also to Korea. Just got mine. Rather late. SM-N950N (South Korea SKT). Coincidentally I am on my bi-annual visit to Seoul. Shame, considering Korea is the country of origin. Was troublesome update. My Japanese input is gone, even from the keyboard language list, and it took me to open firefox before being given option to redownload.

I recieved android pie update and installed it. But I think it it consumes battery much faster than the older android. I am usually charge phone at night and plug it off from charger before sleeping. At morning the consumed percentage from battery is about 5 or 3 percent. But it is now after updating to new android pie it reaches 10%.
