If the phone was supplied by a Network then you would probably wait for them.to.give Samsung the go ahead to release it to their branded phone's.
If the phone was supplied by directly from Samsung then you would need to keep checking the phone's software update section.
Typically Networks and Samsung wont comment on firmware release timescales.

Well it seems to become hopeless. Really think about selling my note 8. I can deal with a lot, but being the last with updates sucks.
When will this Oreo 8 update arrive for my Note 8 n9500? Seems the S7 & S7 edge phones will be updated before us. Samsung what are you doing?!!! This is very poor service, please sort this issue out. Thanks
Yes, the SM-N9500 (NOTE 8 TGY) has now Android 8 Oreo, but i noticed a strange thing: we have however V2 bootloader, and the other Note 8 have V3 bootloader! I don't understand the meaning of this difference...
