[Sprint as well] Verizon Note 8 starts getting Oreo update

Update 2: Sprint has also started pushing out the update, which weighs in at around 1.3GB.


Update 1: Some Verizon users have confirmed the update brings along Device Maintenance functionality.


Original story follows:

A new (and a major) update has started rolling out to Samsung Galaxy Note8 units on Verizon’s network. Why we’re saying it’s a major update? Well, because it brings the much awaited Android 8.0 Oreo to the device.

A couple of users have shared screenshots of the update being installed on their device:


It’s reasonable to assume that all Oreo features are included in the update. As the complete change-log isn’t yet available, it’s difficult to say what else is included in the update. Verizon’s software update page for the Galaxy Note 8 is yet to be updated, so guess, we’ll have to wait for a while to officially get details about the update.

Meanwhile, those who’ve got the update can let us know in comments about their experience with Oreo on their device.
