The Samsung Galaxy S8 is arguably one of Samsung’s best phones ever, bringing an ergonomic design, gorgeous screen, and a very capable main camera. It seems like the company hasn’t forgotten about it though, as a stable version of Android Pie is apparently hitting devices in Europe.

The OTA is rolling out to some users in Belgium, Denmark, Germany, and the Netherlands, according to a thread on the Galaxy S8 subreddit. This update also brings the February 2019 security patches.

Samsung’s update comes in at 1.6GB, so you might want to connect to Wi-Fi before hitting the download button.

Much like the Galaxy S9’s Pie update, the Galaxy S8 OTA brings Samsung’s One UI experience. The Android skin delivers an eye-friendly night mode, a reorganized settings menu, and shifts interactive elements to the bottom of the screen for easier access.

System updates tend to roll out in a phased manner, so don’t fret if the update hasn’t come to your device just yet.
