Android 9 Pie for Galaxy Note8 with One UI- Download Firmware and Installation Guide

Also for the Galaxy Note 8, the update is available with PDA code N950FXXU5DSB2 that brings Android 9 Pie on the phablet of Samsung released last year, which then receives the latest version of Android with new graphics.

It also comes through a Bulgarian Android 9 Pie firmware but that works perfectly on any local device for the Galaxy Note 8 with model code SM-N950F and with all phone operators.

Obviously, it brings with it all the graphics novelties of the One UI of Samsung and all the functional ones of the new version of Android introduced by Google.

Let me remind you that the manual update of an original and official firmware does not invalidate the warranty. The operation is simple and will allow you to remove all the operator customizations and have a Galaxy Note 8 in all respects updated to the latest firmware available. Although it is distributed in Bulgaria, it has the Italian language and works perfectly with all countries’ Note 8.

You will need to flash the original Samsung official ROM via ODIN with the known procedure to flash all the official Samsung firmware.
