Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8 is finally getting Android Oreo, with reports from users around the globe confirming that the software is now available for the 2017 phablet.

Want to find out more about Android's latest operating software? Here are five things you need to know about Android Oreo.

Android Oreo and the Galaxy Note 8 were released around the same time, but as with previous devices, Samsung chose to include the previous year’s version of Android on their flagship handset.

The new update brings a host of security improvements, with tweaks to fingerprint and facial scanning, as well as grouped notifications, picture-in-picture support and better battery life.

Users will need 1.5GB of space spare on their Galaxy Note 8 in order to download and install the update.

Future Samsung phones should receive the latest versions of Android faster after Google revealed that Android P will make it easier for mobile makers to test and install the software on their phones.
