Samsung Galaxy S8 plus stable Oreo update download install

Samsung already released the official stable Oreo update a few weeks ago. Now that the Samsung Experience 9.0 ROM is officially out of Beta Software Program, it is time to roll out the stable one. Following the cancellation of the stable Android 8.0 Oreo update for the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus with firmware build number G955FXXU1CRAP and G955FXXU1CRAP respectively, the OTA seems to be resumed. Due to some random reboot issues, the update was paused. Today, the a new OTA update for the Galaxy S8 is being pushed.

The new Oreo update comes with firmware build number G950FXXU1CRB7 and  G950FXXU1CRB7 for S8 and S8 Plus respectively. While the Baseband version remains the same, it features more or less the same bug fixes and features. It is still based on Android 8.0 and latest February 2018 Android Security Patch. As the screenshot we have received is in German language, we are not sure what the update holds, except that its is based on Samsung Experience 9.0.

The OTA is currently rolling out in European countries like Germany, France, etc. It will soon come to other Asian and other European countries in a few days. The update file weighs around 530 MB in size. Users already updated to the CRAP update are likely to receive the CRB7 OTA first. The international variants of S8 and S8 Plus (Exynos variants SM-G950F/FD and SM- G955F/FD) will be among the first devices to receive the new Oreo firmware.
