Following the trend of a few recent posts - are there any details on when Vodafone NZ will release Android 8.0 for the Galaxy Note 8? Some overseas carriers have released theirs in the past few days on the Exynos SoCs.
@Praab_NZ Soooooo many threads explaining this process, Mobile carriers only approve the update then it's over to Samsung Korea to push out the update and sometimes it's taken 1 week and times it's taken up to 4 - 6 weeks
Could you link me to one of these threads, I'm interested to learn more. Though I was looking for a timeline or time estimate out of interest.
I did however think (could be wrong) that Samsung consults the carrier for modifications and these modifications vary per carrier. So although the carrier might not directly affect the timeline they may request changes to the final build that can significantly delay the development process. The final part as you mentioned is for the approval of the carrier and submission for OTA deployment back at Samsung, but it may have gone back and forth multiple times at the behest of the Carrier. That was my understanding anyhow.
