All four major US carriers have now rolled Android 8.0 Oreo out to the Galaxy S8 and S8+, but we hadn’t heard much about the often-forgotten third sibling, the Galaxy S8 Active. That changes now, as AT&T has become the first carrier to roll Oreo out to the rugged S8.
Software-wise, the S8 Active’s 1.2GB update should be bringing the same changes as its glass-backed brethren. That means regular Oreo stuff like picture-in-picture, autofill, and notification dots, as well as Samsung-exclusive changes such as Dual Messenger and App Pair.

Following AT&T, two more US carriers are now sending Oreo updates to Samsung Galaxy Note8 phones on their networks – Verizon and Sprint. It’s a hefty update, over a gigabyte, but it’s worth it. It adds features like picture-in-picture, autofill, device maintenance, improved biometrics, better background app management and so on. Besides Android 8.0 Oreo, the update also brings the Samsung Experience version to 9.0. Galaxy Note8 phones on Verizon and Sprint are receiving Oreo We took at peek at posts discussing the T-Mobile version, but there’s nothing yet. Well, besides people…
AT&T Galaxy Note8 owners received a nice surprise a couple of days ago with their Android 8.0 Oreo update, and now it’s Verizon and Sprint owners’ turns. Both major US CDMA carriers are now sending out the long-awaited Oreo to their variants of the Note8, meaning that T-Mobile is the only one lagging behind.
Initial reports only concerned the Verizon model, but Sprint users quickly chimed in that they, too, were now receiving the update.

The LG V30 is now receiving its Android 8.0 Oreo update. Specifically, it’s the AT&T model that’s being updated.
V30 owners that’ve gotten the 1.8GB update say that it includes Android 8.0 Oreo, the March 2018 Android security patches, and AI camera features found on LG’s V30S ThinQ. For example, the AI Cam feature uses machine learning to recognize what your camera is being pointed at and show keywords on-screen. You can then use those keywords to make sure that the camera’s settings are set up for whatever you’re photographing to help you get a better picture.
It’s good to see another Android phone get its update to Oreo, and LG V30 owners will have even more new goodies to look forward to since they’re getting some new ThinQ camera features. If you’ve got an LG V30 on AT&T and you haven’t gotten your Oreo update yet, you can check for it manually by going into Settings > General tab > About phone > Software Update > Update now.
The Nokia 8 got Android 8.1 last month, and now both the Nokia 5 and the original Nokia 6 from 2017 are in the process of receiving updates to this version of the OS. The two phones got their first taste of Oreo, then in the 8.0 iteration, back in January. The update is rolling out to the Nokia 5 in India, Tunisia, and Indonesia, while the Nokia 6 is only getting it in India at the moment. We expect more markets to see the new software in the next few days. The Nokia 5 is facing an 866.7MB download, while the Nokia 6’s will be 933.8MB. For both you will need to grab the file via Wi-Fi….
After the Galaxy S8 began getting its Android 8.0 update earlier this month, it’s now the Galaxy Note 8’s turn to taste Oreo.
AT&T has started pushing Android 8.0 Oreo to its version of the Galaxy Note 8. Several Reddit users have received the update, which weighs in at 1.4GB and is version N950USQU3CRC2.
The update brings Oreo goodies like picture-in-picture, autofill, and notification dots, as well as Samsung tweaks like improvements to the Samsung Keyboard and the Edge panel. Note 8 owners that’ve gotten the update are also reporting that the March 2018 Android security patches are included, too.
The Galaxy Note 8 was one of 2017’s biggest smartphones, so it’s good to see that it’s finally starting to receive Oreo. Now that AT&T has started pushing the update to its Note 8, other carriers probably aren’t far behind, so you Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon Note 8 owners should keep an eye out for your Oreo treat in the coming days.
Yesterday we found out that the Oreo update for Samsung’s Galaxy Note8 would hit units purchased from the US at some point “in the coming weeks”. We weren’t expecting the wait to be quite so short for owners of a Note8 bought from AT&T. But it was, as the update is already rolling out. It’s a 1.4GB download, so you’ll want to grab it over Wi-Fi. After you install it, your phone will be on Android 8.0, Samsung Experience 9.0, and Build R16NW.N950USQU3CRC2. There are many reports of people having received it, so it seems to be quite a widespread rollout. If you haven’t yet seen the…
