Android 8.0 Oreo Update For Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Leaked

Samsung Galaxy Note 8, Best Deals Offers UK

An Android 8.0 Oreo OTA build for the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 has leaked online. Redditor mweinbach discovered a link to the update on Samsung’s servers. Only the Verizon variant of the Note 8 as received it so far.

Several users reporting that the update is functional, but unstable when using certain apps. In order to flash the leaked Android Oreo beta, mweinbach notes that Snapdragon Note 8 users have to update to Samsung’s official Nougat-based 2BQK2 firmware. Notably, the leaked firmware update (N950USQU2CQL1) appears to be an early test build based on the final version and not a beta build.

The leaked build is only compatible with the US version of Samsung’s phablet that is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 SoC (SM-N950U). It also requires the device to already be running firmware version N950USQS2BQK2.

The leak is something of a surprise as unlike its flagship sibling, the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, we haven’t even seen a beta build of Oreo for the Note 8 just yet. OTA download link.

Note: If you’re planning to give it a go, be forewarned that the Oreo beta’s likely unstable and might cause crashes.
