T-Mobile Galaxy Note 8 is now receiving official Android Pie update that also comes packed with Samsung’s new One UI skin. For loyal Galaxy Note 8 users this is great news! Thanks to this update, the 2017 flagship phone will now be up to speed with the latest, stable Android revision available. However, the update did experience a long delay. For international Galaxy Note 8 variant, it was updated a month or so back. Regardless, the update is here and you can install it on your phone directly through OTA (Over-the-air) update.
It truly is a great day for T-Mobile users; receiving the latest update of Android Pie for their Galaxy Note 8 which includes Samsung One UI and on top of it, many more new functional features for the users. Unfortunately, however, not everyone would be immediately getting the update as this is a phased roll-out but gradually, within the next week or so, each device would be eligible. Once installed, you should notice a boost in performance, improved security and also a completely revamped UI along with revamped system apps such as Messages, Phone and more.
T-Mobile Galaxy Note 8 receives Official Android Pie Update
Sprint, AT&T & Verizon Wireless already offered the update whereas, at the time, T-Mobile did not which was disappointing for many loyal fans. You can read more about current status of T-Mobile software updates for different devices here.
Once you update to Android Pie, your phone automatically gets installed with Samsung One UI. The main goal with One UI was to introduce extended features such as improved one-handed usability, navigation gestures, adaptable storage, new icons & design elements, dark mode, etc.
Samsung has its perks when it comes to Galaxy Note series. But before you go for the update, it is normal to expect few initial bugs such as excessive battery drain, hiding navigation bar, trouble using gestures, etc. These bugs are generally related to any major Android version upgrade. Hopefully, you don’t get to experience any of these but then again, if you do, future software releases will hopefully address this.
