Samsung has been rolling out the January security patch over the past few weeks. The latest security maintenance release has since arrived on a handful of its devices. Today, it’s the Galaxy Note 8’s turn. Last year’s flagship phablet is now receiving the security patch for the month of January 2019.

This update brings the latest patch to units running on Android Oreo. Samsung opened up the Galaxy Note 8 to its One UI (Android Pie) beta program this month. The beta firmware comes with the January patch.

Galaxy Note 8 gets January security patch

Samsung is rolling out firmware version N950FXXU5CSA5 for the Galaxy Note 8 in Brazil. It’s available for download from our firmware section. Verizon is also releasing the same patch in the United States. Its firmware version N950USQS5CRL1 is also available from our database. There are also reports of AT&T rolling out the same for its variant. Those with an unlocked US Galaxy Note 8 model can get firmware version N950U1UES5CSA1 here as well.

Three critical Android OS vulnerabilities have been fixed with this security patch in addition to several high-risk vulnerabilities in addition to four found in Samsung’s own software. One notable vulnerability fixed in the update opened the possibility of a user’s access to data over Wi-Fi being interrupted.

Other carriers in the United States should follow suit soon. This handset is eligible for the Android Pie update but may not get it for at least over a month. The beta program is underway currently with the second test firmware being rolled out just a few days ago.
