Home / News / Galaxy S8+ update brings October security patch, stability improvements

The Galaxy S8+ is now getting an update that brings the October security patch, following devices like the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy A5 (2016 and 2017). Once again, the latest security patch update seems to have hit the Netherlands first, but it shouldn’t be long before it makes its way to other regions. The update is available over the air as a 479 MB download and carries firmware version G955FXXU1AQI9.

Galaxy S8+ latest update includes stability improvements

The latest Galaxy S8+ update also brings stability improvements for the launcher and DeX mode. The latter, we’re assuming, may be related to the upcoming support for running Linux OS on DeX. The changelog doesn’t mention anything else, and as with all monthly updates, this one isn’t likely to have any hidden user-facing features. We also don’t know if the Galaxy S8 has started receiving the update yet, but we’ll let you know once it does. The Galaxy S8 is also getting the update, as reported by one of our readers.

Galaxy S8+ update brings October security patch, stability improvements

If you are using a Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+ and want to see if the update is available, open the phone’s settings, tap Software update, then tap Download updates manually. Don’t worry if there’s no update available; just wait for a couple of days and you should get a notification informing you of its arrival. It should also be up in our firmware database shortly.

Tal ves la configuración cambio pero no sale el botón de ampliar vídeos a pantalla completa en los vídeos de you Tube. Si alguien puede ampliar a toda la pantalla agradeceré su aporte.

Is this update limited to specific regions and/or variants or is it coming to everyone? We’re into November now and mine is still on the August update

What a discgrace! There’s so many threats waiting just behing the corner, so many hackers wants to steal your data. You should sue Samsung for that. And get a voodoo

you’re the biggest idiot in the world. you don’t deserve an S8. when apple and google push half broken updates that drain your battery “but dude they’re fast!1!1!” when samsung actually takes the time to make sure they work fine and you wont have any problems with it “NEVER BUYING SAM SONG AGAIN!1!1!11”
kill yourself

Please push to carrier to implement the updates. i`m doing this contant in Romania every month. Actually Samsung is releasing updates monthly but the reality is the cariers are delaying the testing and approving it up to 3 months. This is why you need to push them and make them more Costumer care orientated.
