T-Mobile is giving Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ owners a weekend treat.

Owners of the T-Mobile Galaxy S8 and S8+ are now receiving their Android 8.0 Oreo update. Several TmoNews readers began getting their update overnight, and they’re now on Android 8.0 with Samsung Experience 9.0.

The Galaxy S8 update is 1548.94MB and is version G950USQU2CRB9, while the Galaxy S8+ update is 1513.01MB and is version G955USQU2CRB9.


As for what’s included, you can expect Edge screen improvements like settings for better Edge panel visibility, more high contrast keyboard options for Samsung Keyboard, and new clock styles for the lock screen and Always On Display. The update to Android Oreo also brings features like autofill, picture-in-picture, and notification dots. The Android security patch level is at February 1, 2018.

If you haven’t gotten this update on your T-Mobile Galaxy S8 or S8+ yet, you should see the OTA hit your device in the coming days. You can also check for it manually by going into Settings > Software update > Download updates manually.

It’s exciting to see Android 8.0 finally hit the Galaxy S8 and S8+ on T-Mobile and give owners of those devices something new to play with during Galaxy S9 launch weekend. If you’ve got a Galaxy S8 or S8+ that’s been updated to Oreo, be sure to share your impressions of the update with us!
