If you have the international model (SM-N950F/FD) Samsung Galaxy Note 8, you can now grab the S9+ Port beta ROM, which gives you the latest and greatest Android 8.0 Oreo along with (optional) root. Now, everything works on this ported ROM so you will get all the new Android 8.0 Oreo standard features plus the identical software from a real Galaxy S9 Plus. But since this is super beta, the new Galaxy S9+ camera isn’t working yet(you can simply install regular Note 8 camera) and Intelligent scan/headphones DO NOT WORK. If this isn’t an issue for you, you can definitely give this guy a go and let me know what you think!
Download Infinity S9+ Port ROM for Galaxy Note 8 – Link
Download Magisk – Link(Optional root)
You will have to have a rooted Galaxy Note 8, see How to Root Galaxy Note 8 first.
Reboot into TWRP recovery, do a factory reset, install ROM, and install Magisk(for root), then reboot. That’s it!
