Galaxy Note 8 gets another update with the August security patch


Last updated: August 16th, 2018 at 13:55 UTC+02:00

The August 2018 security patch was released for all of Samsung’s flagships from (and including) the Galaxy S8 very early, before Google had the chance to publish details about the patch (and just before it released Android 9.0 Pie). The Galaxy Note 8 is now receiving another software update with the August patch. It has been released in United Arab Emirates with software version N950FXXU4CRH3.

Galaxy Note 8 gets another August update

The changelog for the new update only mentions improved security, so it’s unclear why Samsung has pushed out another update so soon. But the company has done the same in the past as well, and the update probably fixes some minor bugs or issues that might have been introduced by the first August update. If you own a Galaxy Note 8 in the UAE, you should be able to download the update from the Settings » Software update menu on your phone. If you can’t access it from the phone itself, you can download the complete firmware from our database and upgrade using a PC.

We will update this post if the same update is released in other markets. In the meantime, do let us know if you see anything new or different after installing the second August update on your Note 8.

Update: The article has been updated with the correct software version.
