AT&T Galaxy S8 Oreo update finally released

Home / News / AT&T Galaxy S8 Oreo update finally released

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.

Seriously? how come a locked variant gets the update before the US factory unlocked variant? Samsung’s software update policy is super confusing.

Lo más probable es que lo tengas que flashear manualmente, espera a que la variante desbloqueada G955U1 tenga el firmware disponible y flashealo con odin, ojo descarga el que tiene el código XAA para no tener ningún bloatware, ósea uno de éstos https://www.sammobile.com/firmwares/galaxy-s8-plus/SM-G955U1/XAA/

Esto aplica para qué países. Para el S8 normal, 950F libre de fábrica qué versión sería buena?

To my dear Iranians:
It’s spiring and we are celebrating Norouwz, let us not care about software updates this much. Gather around with your family and friends, just be happy. Technology should serves us not the other way around. So, let us honor the mother nature by just simply not giving a damn about Oreo or whatever P stands for and instead connecting with nature, caring about our environment, the air we breathe,…
I wouldn’t even do the update
(Silently checks for update manually)

Seriously, why do we need a report every time a US carrier releases an update?! Sammobile is not exclusive to the US – and I believe started in Europe, WHY do you feel the need to report whenever America does something. If you want to report carriers should report them all on a separate page and leave the news page for actual news.

It may have started in Europe but it’s been reporting on every other nation especially when it started with Germany so it’s not all about the US get your head out of your ass you ignorant prick

Yeah, they’re mentioning when O2, 3 and Vodafone are getting updates aren’t they.
They have kept us informed of when Pakistan and New Zealand carriers get updates too.
You need to get your head literally OUT and realise there is more to the world than the US. You have the audacity to call me ignorant. you must be a special breed of ignorance and arrogance.

They report on international things more than the US. And what is it to you? It helps us people here that have to wait longer because of the carriers.

Because just like you, the rest of the world is entitled to the same news. Sadly we can’t all have just one or two carriers like the rest of the world… The US has a wide variety of carriers, and each one is different. So yea, for those of us in the US, knowing when your carrier finally releases an update IS news. So suck it up buttercup, news doesn’t revolve around you 😀
