Samsung distributes an update to fix the Galaxy S8′s connectivity issues

Samsung’s now in the midst of rolling out a maintenance update, which bundles all of the changes included in this month’s security release, in addition to a slew of additional bug fixes, for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ in the United Arab Emirates.

More specifically, the upgrade appears to address a whole host of issues related to Bluetooth connectivity, including a patch for a nasty bug which resulted in a handset rebooting when controlling music playing through a wireless speaker.

What’s strange, however, is that the firmware is actually identical in size to the update that started making the rounds in India last week, but it doesn’t appear to bundle any of the same changes.

To see if the OTA is ready for your unit, open up Settings, tap Software Update, then press Download Updates Manually. If it doesn’t show up, it simply means it hasn’t reached your device yet — so repeat the process in a few hours.
