Here’s How Long Does the Galaxy Note 8 Oreo Update Take?

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Oreo update is a big upgrade, but it will only take you a few moments to download and install it on your phone, provided you’ve prepared yourself and your device for the transition.

After waiting for a while, the Galaxy Note 8 Oreo update is finally rolling out. The update is currently limited to models in Europe, but is expected to roll out to North America and other regions by the end of the month. Samsung Canada said it plans to begin rolling out the update on March 28.

Like the Galaxy S8 Oreo update, the Galaxy Note 8’s Android Oreo update is a major upgrade with a long list of features, enhancements, fixes, and security patches. Given what’s on board, most Galaxy Note 8 users will want to switch from Nougat to Oreo soon after the update arrives.

When you go to install Android Oreo on your Galaxy Note 8, you will want to take some free time to watch the download and installation. Switching from one Android version to another can cause problems, so you’ll want to watch the process like a hawk.

It varies from person to person, device to device, so we can’t tell you exactly how much time you need to take to complete the process. What we can do, though, is to help you understand how much time you need to dedicate when your Galaxy Note 8 Oreo update arrives.

If you’re already ready for the Android 8.0 Oreo upgrade, it may take less than 10 minutes to complete the installation process. If you haven’t, it could take much longer.

Task Time
Backup (Optional) 1-30 Minutes
Download Oreo 3-15 Minutes
Oreo Update 5-10 Minutes
Total Galaxy Note 8 Oreo Update Time 10 Minutes to 1 Hour

Prepare for Android Oreo

Before you start the installation process, make sure to prepare yourself and your device for Android Oreo. A little prep work goes a long way in preventing problems and headaches.

If you don’t know where to start, please take a look at our pre-installation process guide. It will walk you through everything we think you should do before installing Oreo on your Galaxy Note 8.

If you don’t have a lot of time to devote to prep work, you should at least make sure your data is backed up. Data loss issues are rare, but it’s better to be safe than sorry.

These steps may take some of you a few minutes at the most. However, those who can’t keep up with or care about the device may need 30 minutes or more to get ready.

Galaxy Note 8 Oreo Download Time

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Android Oreo update is currently limited to users in France, and we expect the exact size of the download will differ from region to region and carrier to carrier. Here’s what we know so far.

The Android Oreo update that Samsung offers to Galaxy Note 8 users is just over 1GB, the same as Samsung’s Galaxy S8 Oreo update.

If you connect your Galaxy Note 8 to a fast Wi-Fi connection, the Android Oreo update should download in less than three minutes.

Galaxy Note 8 Oreo Installation Time

If you’re running the latest version of Android for your Galaxy Note 8, it shouldn’t take more than 10 minutes for Android Oreo and Experience 9.0 to be up and running on your device.

If you’re not running the latest version, you may have to download security and bug fix updates that you skipped in the meantime. This will obviously prolong the process.

If you don’t want to deal with that, we highly recommend updating your Galaxy Note 8 before your Android Oreo update arrives.

Post install

Be sure to check your important data (photos, videos, etc.) after the installation is complete. Again, data loss is rare, but you’ll want to make sure everything gets handled.

After the installation process is complete, you may need to spend some time logging back into your various accounts and services.

Review your apps and services to make sure you’re still signed in. This process may take some time if you have many apps on your phone.

Next, we recommend testing your core apps and services to make sure they’re working properly. If you notice something wrong with an app, check the appropriate store for an update.

Samsung has released Android Oreo support updates for its apps and these should help. If not, contact the developer (maybe Samsung or a third-party developer) and report the problem.
