Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ get a software update in India with May security patch


Last updated: May 16th, 2017 at 11:32 UTC+02:00

Samsung is pushing out a new software update to the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ in India. At 613 MB, the update looks big but doesn’t seem to have any changes or new features other than the May security patch. Our units still have a slight pink/green hue around the top and bottom edges of the display, even after attempting to correct edge color balance, so it’s clear Samsung still hasn’t perfected display calibration on its new flagships. Perhaps it never will, as it’s looking more and more like a hardware issue despite Samsung’s unwillingness to call it so.

We’ll be taking a closer look to see if the update brings anything new, but in the meantime, you can download the update by going into the Settings » Software update menu on your Galaxy S8 or S8+. It’s a big update, so make sure you’re on a Wi-Fi connection so you can avoid using up too much of your data plan. Should you find anything new or different after the update, do let us know in the comments. Folks in other countries should also be seeing the same update soon, as Samsung is using a single firmware for most Asian and European markets with the Galaxy S8 and S8+.



Thanks, Abhishek!
