An OTA is the classic Android update. First a new firmware is developed by Google. Then, this software is offered to the OEM, in our case Samsung. The company adds its own features and apps (the TouchWiz) and then delivers the software to each carrier. Finally, your provider will customize the update with particular factory and carrier restrictions. And, of course, the last step from this elaborate process implies in rolling out the final built of Android. So, as a result, on your Galaxy S8 Edge you will receive a notification which will prompt you through the update operation.

 

That’s an OTA roll out. Unfortunately, such updates are usually rolled out in phases and gradually and also on limited markets only (you can already figure it why). Therefore, not all the Galaxy S8 Edge users will be able to receive the new OTA at the same time.

 

You can keep checking for the update manually, but it may not have any effect:

  1. From the home screen, swipe down the Status bar.
  2. Tap the Settings icon.
  3. Scroll to and tap System Update.

Tyler you might want to check how a update really works. At&t does not alter the update after samsung gets release approval.

For certain devices, ATT does customize the update with particular factory and carrier restrictions before the release is rolled out.
