Verizon’s Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ getting a new update

Verizon had released the October security patch for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ late last month, and the carrier was one of the few to include a fix for the KRACK Wi-Fi exploit ahead of Android’s November security update. It seems some people who received that particular update were running into problems making a phone call, so Verizon is now pushing out a new update to get things back to normal for S8 and S8+ users. The build number for the latest update is G950USQU1AQK3 for the S8 and G955USQU1AQK3 for the S8+.

November security patch isn’t part of the new update

The new update doesn’t bring the November security patch, and other than the fix for phone calls not going through, there’s nothing on offer. But it’s an important update because, you know, people do still make phone calls, so if you’re using a Galaxy S8 or S8+ on Verizon, be sure to check if the update is available for you by heading into the Settings » Software update menu. We will also have the firmware up on the SamMobile database shortly, which you will be able can use to upgrade manually using a PC.

Have you received the update on your Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+? If yes, does it bring back proper calling functionality, or did you never have that issue in the first place? Let us know in the comments!
