Galaxy S8 getting update with November security patch in Germany


Last updated: November 16th, 2018 at 10:21 UTC+02:00

Samsung Germany left everyone hanging yesterday by not releasing the Galaxy S9 Android Pie beta, but it seems to be business as usual as far as security updates are concerned. The Galaxy S8 is being updated with the November 2018 security patch in Germany. The update comes with software version G950FXXU4CRK1.

Galaxy S8 November 2018 patch out in Germany

The update isn’t currently available over the air (OTA), so you will have to use Samsung Smart Switch or our firmware database if you don’t like waiting. We’re not expecting the changelog to include anything other than the new security patch, and neither should you. Samsung is currently busy preparing Android Pie and One UI for the Galaxy S8, so any new features are likely to arrive with the Pie update sometime next year.

The November security update is not here for the Galaxy S8+ yet. That should change soon, and we will update this article when that happens. In the meantime, you can check if the OTA is available from the Software update menu in the Settings app of your S8 or S8+.
