The same report speculates over AT&T user too started receiving the same update. There are reports, such as from Android Authority, that even Sprint users too will receive the same update relatively soon. Seems like as Samsung promised it started rolling out Oreo update.
If anyone has any doubts about such reports, the Reddit community for Samsung Galaxy Note 8, r/GalaxyNote8 has witnessed people expressing surprise over Galaxy Note receiving Oreo update. It seems the mobile careers are extra cautious and not rolling out an update in a hurry, instead, the pace is too slow. However, experts suggest that phone companies in the US are playing a waiting game to catch the problem if any.
It was found the Samsung rolled back the international rollout once they got to hold on some of ‘forced restart error. Samsung quickly moves forward after fixing the errors.
