Galaxy S8, Galaxy A6+, and Galaxy J7 Pro get June 2018 security patch update


Last updated: June 18th, 2018 at 13:52 UTC+02:00

Samsung is rolling out the June 2018 security patch to at least three devices this week. The Galaxy S8, Galaxy A6+, and the Galaxy J7 Pro are receiving an update with the latest security fixes in different regions. The Galaxy S8 update is rolling out in the US, the A6+ is being updated in China (where it was recently launched as the Galaxy A9 Star Lite), and the J7 Pro is getting the update in India.

June 2018 security patch update released for multiple Galaxies

The June 2018 patch debuted on the 2017 Galaxy A series phones at the beginning of the month and is yet to be released for Samsung’s latest flagships, the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+. The Galaxy S8 update for the US (for Comcast’s Xinifinty network) is notable in particular as it’s yet another security update that Samsung hasn’t released for unlocked Galaxy S9 models in the country. The company continues to shower support on the Galaxy S9’s predecessor, though, which has earned the ire of Galaxy S9 owners in the US.

The A6+ update for China brings improvements to camera stability and adds HDR functionality to the camera app, in addition to the June security patch. Details of the vulnerabilities the patch fixes can be found on Samsung’s security bulletin. If you own any of these devices, you can download the update from the Settings » Software update menu. You can also grab the full firmware from our database and install it manually on your device if the update isn’t available over the air just yet.
