Samsung Galaxy Note Fan Edition users can now install Android 8.0 Oreo official firmware on their smartphones with the guide detailed right ahead. Samsung has finally updated the Fan Edition of Note lineup to Android 8.0. For unaware users, the Note Fan Edition was a reincarnation of the original Galaxy Note 7. It basically had the same exact hardware as the Note 7 but a modified battery that prevented the malfunction found in the original Note 7. Fortunately, Samsung hasn’t forgotten about this smartphone and has released latest Android version upgrade for it. With this firmware, users would be able to jump from older Nougat builds to Android Oreo. The changes are quite substantial and you would be able to notice them right away after you install it on your Galaxy Note Fan Edition.
The Fan Edition, unfortunately, was kept only for the Korean market hence the firmware upgrades comply to Korean telecommunication standards. Further, there are three main variants of the phone — N935S / N935K / N935L and luckily, we have official firmwares for each. Discussing our procedure, we will first download the complete official firmware and then utilize Odin utility to flash it to the device. This being a substantial upgrade, we assume it will run a factory-reset script once it finishes hence making it absolutely necessary to make a viable backup all your apps and your user data before implementing.
