The AT&T Galaxy Note 8 Oreo update is rolling out today about a week after Samsung first released the latest Android platform update for its flagship phablet. Multiple reports have surfaced online confirming that the carrier is now rolling out Android 8.0 Oreo for the Galaxy Note 8 on its network. AT&T, which was the last carrier to release Oreo for the Galaxy S8, has now become the first to release this update for the Galaxy Note 8.

AT&T Galaxy Note 8 Oreo update

Samsung had confirmed on its official support forums last week that the Android 8.0 Oreo update would be out for all variants of the Galaxy Note 8 in the United States within 2-3 weeks. It specified that the update would be out for both carrier-locked and unlocked variants in the promised timeframe.

It has also made a similar promise for the unlocked Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ in the United States. The handsets have received Oreo on all four major carriers but the unlocked version is yet to receive the update. Samsung pointed out that the delay is due to additional testing that's required to ensure proper functionality for all networks that unlocked variants are compatible with.

AT&T is now rolling out firmware version N950USQU3CRC2 for the Galaxy Note 8 over the air. As expected, it weighs in at 1.4GB since it's a major Android platform update. The update is being rolled out gradually so it might take a while for it to go live for all users.

The AT&T Galaxy Note 8 Oreo update brings a handful of new features including but not limited to Autofill, notification dots, picture-in-picture mode and more. Don't forget to check out our detailed What's New With Android 8.0 Oreo series to find out more in detail about the features and improvements included in this iteration of Android.

Users in the United States can now try to manually pull the AT&T Galaxy Note 8 Oreo update by heading over to the Software update menu in the Settings app. We can expect other carriers to release Oreo for this handset in the near future as well.
