The Galaxy S8 was updated to the June 2018 security patch earlier this week over in the United States, and Samsung has now turned its attention to the Galaxy Note 8. A Galaxy Note 8 update is rolling out in various European countries with the latest security patch included. The build number for the new software is N950FXXS3CRF1, and it doesn’t have anything other than the June security patch to offer.
Galaxy Note 8 update brings June security patch
The June 2018 security patch fixes five critical vulnerabilities that were discovered in Android and three vulnerabilities that exclusively affect Samsung’s software. As usual, a number of vulnerabilities that don’t pose as big a risk as the critical ones have been patched as well. Slovakia, Germany, Russia, Uzbekistan, Greece, Kazakhstan, South East Europe, Netherlands, Spain, Austria, Ukraine, Switzerland, Bulgaria, Romania, Italy, France, Nordic countries, and Hungary are the markets/regions that are confirmed to be receiving the update, but it may take a while for it to reach everyone even in these countries.
As usual, you try downloading the update by tapping Download updates manually in the Software update menu of the phone’s Settings app. If your phone says it’s up to date, try again in a few hours. We will update this post once the complete firmware for the new update is available in our database, so you can manually install the latest software using a PC instead of waiting for it to arrive over the air. Of course, we will also have a post up as soon as Samsung releases the June 2018 security update for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+.
