North American carrier Verizon is kicking things off for Samsung's flagship phones when it comes to the July 2018 security patch. The latest security patch has been released for some budget and mid-range devices in the last few days, and it is now available for Galaxy S8 owners on Verizon in the US. The software version of the device is getting a bump to SQS5CRF5 with the latest update.

Galaxy S8 update brings July 2018 security patch

The update doesn't bring anything other than security fixes, as is evident from Verizon's support page. The July 2018 security patch fixes four critical Android OS vulnerabilities and nine vulnerabilities that were discovered in Samsung's software. Like always, the patch also includes fixes for numerous moderate and high-risk vulnerabilities, details of which can be seen on Samsung's security bulletin. It's unclear when other carriers will release the update for the S8 and S8+, and the same goes for the international unlocked models as well.

The update is available for both the Galaxy S8 and S8+, and you should be able to download it from the Settings » Software update menu on your phone. You can also download the complete firmware from our database (Galaxy S8 | Galaxy S8+) if the update doesn't show up for you on the device itself.
