T-Mobile is rolling out the Galaxy S8 Active Oreo update


Last updated: April 3rd, 2018 at 15:34 UTC+01:00

Samsung has dragged its feet long enough when it comes to the Android 8.0 Oreo update, but the company has picked up the pace considerably in the last couple of weeks after launching the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+. North American carriers have also been actively rolling out the Oreo update to Samsung’s flagship devices, and over the last weekend, AT&T started pushing out Oreo to the Galaxy S8 Active, bringing the total count of Samsung devices to have received the latest version of Android to three (four, if we count the Galaxy S8+ as a separate device). Well, it looks T-Mobile had the update ready before AT&T, as it says it had begun rolling out the Galaxy S8 Active Oreo update on March 29th.

T-Mobile is rolling out the Galaxy S8 Active Oreo update

The Android 8.0 Oreo update for T-Mobile’s S8 Active has build number G892USQU1BRC4, and it includes the March 2018 security patch (the April 2018 patch is already out, though, in case you missed it). You can expect to see the same new features and improvements that Oreo brought over to the regular Galaxy S8 on your Galaxy S8 Active once you’ve updated. There’s a lot of new stuff, and you can check out our What’s New With Android 8.0 Oreo series of articles for more details. Needless to say, be prepared to download a sizable amount to upgrade to Oreo. 1,302 MB to be exact, which is slightly higher than AT&T’s version of the update. And yes, this leaves Sprint as the only carrier to not have released Oreo for the Galaxy S8 Active, but that will hopefully change soon.

The Oreo update should show up on your T-Mobile Galaxy S8 Active in the next few days, but if you aren’t fond of waiting, you can download it right away from the Settings » Software update menu. If it isn’t immediately available, you can also download the complete firmware from our database and use a PC for the upgrade.
