AT&T Galaxy S8 Oreo update finally released


Last updated: March 21st, 2018 at 07:44 UTC+02:00

The AT&T Galaxy S8 Oreo update is finally rolling out today which means that all four major carriers in the United States have now released Oreo for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. We have seen Verizon, T-Mobile and Sprint release said update on their networks quite recently so it was only a matter of time before AT&T followed suit and that’s precisely what it has done today.

AT&T Galaxy S8 Oreo update

Samsung actually started rolling out the Android 8.0 Oreo update for the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ about a month ago but as many of you already know there’s always a delay for carrier-branded devices. That’s because carriers tend to make their own tweaks to the software before it’s rolled out.

The wait is finally over for customers of the second largest mobile network in the United States as the AT&T Galaxy S8 Oreo release has now taken place. AT&T is rolling out firmware version G950USQU2CRB9 and G955USQU2CRB9 for the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ respectively. The update comes in at just over 1.5GB and comes with the February 2018 security patch.

It’s unclear if and when the March 2018 security patch will be rolled out for these devices in the United States. AT&T customers can head over to the Software update menu in the Settings app right now to download the update if they have yet to receive the over-the-air update notification on their handsets.

The AT&T Galaxy S8 Oreo update brings several new features such as multitasking support for apps, picture-in-picture mode, Autofill, notification dots, and more. There are some Samsung-specific new features as well such as the Dual Messenger and additional Edge lighting effects.

If you’re curious about all of the new features that are part and parcel of Android 8.0 Oreo then do check out our extensive What’s New With Android 8.0 Oreo series. The series will give you great insight on all of the new features included in this update.
