Galaxy Note 8 Oreo release date possibly revealed by Samsung Turkey

Samsung is yet to confirm the Galaxy Note 8 Oreo release date but since the company has released the update for the Galaxy S8, it’s only a matter of time before Oreo makes it to Samsung’s flagship phablet. An official Samsung website has now possibly revealed that Galaxy Note 8 Oreo release date and if the information is taken at face value then it appears that this handset will receive the Oreo update later this month.

Galaxy Note 8 Oreo release date

Güncelmiyiz is a legitimate website owned and operated by Samsung Turkey. It uses the website to provide details about upcoming firmware updates for Samsung devices. It has been updated to reflect that Android 8.0 Oreo is the next major OS update for the Galaxy Note 8 and the firmware is in the test phase right now with a “planned update date” of March 30.

Aside from revealing the Galaxy Note 8 Oreo release date, the website also mentions that Android 8.0 Oreo is in the test phase for the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge with a planned release date of April 13. Similar information is also offered for the Galaxy A3, A5 and A7 (2017) all of which are listed to receive the Oreo update on May 25 this year. Samsung Turkey may also release said update for the 9.7-inch Galaxy Tab S3 on May 4. We did report not too long ago that Samsung has started developing the Oreo update for the Galaxy S7, Galaxy A5 (2017) and the Galaxy Tab S3.

As previously mentioned, Güncelmiyiz is a legitimate Samsung website and functions as its local update portal for users in Turkey so there just might be some truth to this information after all. However, given Samsung’s track record with firmware updates, it would be wise not to hope that the Oreo update for the aforementioned devices will be rolled out on the very days mentioned on the website.

As far as the Galaxy Note 8 Oreo release date for other markets is concerned, we can expect the Oreo update to be rolled out for the phablet and the other devices a few days before or after the update is released in Turkey.




Thanks, Emre!

April 13? The Oreo update should’ve rolled out to the S7 a long long time ago considering it came out in August. Disappointing. I’m running my S7 on the February security patch and getting impatient for Oreo.

Piyasadaki bütün telefonlar oreo kullanıyor,
Android P için bilgiler paylaşılıyor ve hala s7 edge için aylardır güncelleme bekliyoruz. Sürekli tarih değiştiriyorsunuz ve bu durum çok sinir bozucu.

I just hope after all these months my Note 8 works better, I was using IPhone for the last 2 years and now back to Samsung, this is a great smartphone for sure nice screen, camera, etc. But with all this hardware I was expecting much better performance, this phone is quite slow many times, applications start to close and other bugs, I already passed a new firmware and is a bit better anyway I will keep waiting ANXIOUSLY for this New Official Firmware.
Why Samsung focus is just for S8?

What a joke Samsung is, how come their most expensive device is still running the 2 year old already Android 7.1.1 when Pixels are starting to get the developer preview for P, is not even funny anymore, I am very disappointed.

I would rather have a Samsung Phone with an outdated OS rather than going back to Google phones, Samsung pack more features into their phones than even up to date Google phones, yes their updates are slow because they are heavily customizing the OS and their poor rollout type updates.

Then again Google is to blame for the slow updates, they would rather sell their phones with (instant updates and support) rather than delaying OS updates to support other companies like Samsung.

Lets hope Project Tango successfully reduce the time and effort needed to update the OS.

There is a rumor that the S6 and Note 5 will get Oreo.

Was a long time Nexus line up consumer..Switched to S7 international unlocked after I heard that the software experience has improved much since the old touchwiz heavy experience. It was actually good but I still hate the way Samsung tinkers with pure android experience such as notifications…Back to the actual discussion…yes it is frustrating wrt updates, having seen both the worlds and with pixel cameras ..I think I’m done with Samsung..Time to move on..The two things I probably would miss : 1. MicroSD slot 2.Samsung Pay. I guess no phone hardware is perfect and these are tradeoffs I would have… Read more »

I think they’re just holding up S7 update for Note 8. The beta which was rolled out to S7 by mistake was really stable. Customization for Note 8 would definitely take time for all that pen stuff.

It wasn’t all that stable and isn’t now either (even after 2 new updates). Just search up XDA for S7 Edge SE9.0 Oreo ROM (baseband version ERB9) and you’ll see.

And I thought Samsung forgot about orio updates after S8.

We’re always complaining about delayed software updates on this website, but the question is does “Sammobile” deliver our demands to Samsung? Otherwise we’re reaching nowhere.

Ya, I don’t think they have any power to reach out to Samsung effectively.

as it’s making so lately .it would be fair if note lineups come with 8.1 as it’s already 7.1.1 instead of 7.0 …thus it would be justified

utvic99

It’d be fair if almost all Samsung phones from 2016 and later have had 8.1 Oreo by now…
Samsung are messing with us customers big time

8.1 is just for Pixel phones – the only additional thing it brings to the actual software is more emoji which is being implemented in 8.0
I am on the Oreo 8.0 beta and have all the 8.1 emoji

I hope it’s true. I’m fine with Nougat but Note8 deserves Oreo ASAP! It’s a great device very functional. For sure 8.0 will bring good things for us. In fact security updates are that worries me. Samsung needs to find a way to provide monthly updates with security patches.

You’re definitely right, my S7 is still on January patch, while some people reported that their S8s are still on November 2017…
