Galaxy Note 8 is being updated with November 2018 security patch


Last updated: November 8th, 2018 at 11:05 UTC+02:00

The November 2018 security patch is finally arriving on a flagship Galaxy. The Galaxy Note 8 looks to be the first flagship in Samsung’s lineup to be getting this month’s security patch, with an update rolling out in quite a few European countries, including Germany, Italy, Switzerland, and Romania. The software version is getting a bump to N950FXXS5CRJ6.

The Galaxy Note 8 November update comes with just the new security patch. The November patch fixes 11 critical Android OS vulnerabilities and 8 Samsung Vulnerabilities and Exposures (SVE) items (which are vulnerabilities that only affect Samsung’s software). Samsung has released the November patch for a number of non-flagship devices already, with some of them getting the latest patch as part of the Android Oreo update. Just how soon other flagship phones will be updated with the November patch remains to be seen.

The latest Galaxy Note 8 update is a 544 MB download over the air (OTA), so make sure to use a Wi-Fi connection if you don’t want to use up too much mobile data. You may alternatively download the relevant firmware from our database if you can’t access the OTA just yet.
