Almost a month has passed since Samsung has released the official Android 8.0 Oreo update for the Galaxy Note 8 device. After installing that update some users have reported instability in their device and have wished for an incremental update to solve the existing issues. Recently a user has reported that his European unit of the Galaxy Note 8 has received a fresh update, now you may be wondering what this update brings? To know more just jump to the next paragraph.

A user named j_storm96 on Reddit has reported about the update. You will be surprised to know that even being massive at 650MB’s this update doesn’t bring any revolutionary change to the handset. We first were expecting the new Android 8.1 Oreo from this update but later it appears to be a sheep in wolf’s clothing. The update is arriving on the devices with version N950FXXU3CRCB/N950FOXM3CRD1/N950FXXU3CRB9. As per user, this update has been received on an Exynos version of the Galaxy Note 8 with model number SM-N950F.

What changelog tells is that the update focuses on the better security of the device. This update is based on March 2018 Security patch which means we have to wait for the latest April patch to arrive. Maybe this update is targeted to fix the prevailing issues and works internally without making any major visible changes. You may have received it or will be receiving it soon, so don’t forget to install it as security is a major concern these days. To check update manually just go to the settings menu-about device-software updates. Here you will get notified if any new update will arrive. We will suggest you opting a fast data connection and a reasonable amount of juice in your battery should be remaining.
