Support Galaxy Note 8 Updates

The Galaxy Note 8 comes out of the box running Android 7.1.1 (Samsung experience version 8.5). This, of course, will change over time as new versions of Android are released and Samsung updates the device accordingly via OTA (over-the-air) software updates.

At the time of writing, Samsung there's no official release date on Android 8.0 Oreo for the Galaxy Note 8 but we do know that it will receive the update eventually, as Samsung flagships typically receive at least 2 years of support for major Android releases.
