Fourth Android Pie beta for Galaxy S8 and S8+ released

Samsung today rolled out a new Android Pie beta update for the Galaxy S8 and S8+. This is the fourth beta release for the devices, which were opened up for the beta program in mid-January. The latest build comes with fixes for a number of bugs that existed in the previous beta releases.

Earlier today, Samsung released the stable Android Pie update for the Note 8 in Bulgaria and Slovakia, following the fourth beta release earlier this week. The Galaxy S8 and S8+ should also be getting the stable update soon.

Samsung is now rolling out software versions G950FXXU4ZSB9 and G955FXXU4ZSB9 for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, respectively. These new builds fix a number of bugs, including the one which prevented NFC from working.

Samsung has also addressed the error that occurred when a file is moved to external memory. You can read the complete list of bugs fixed in the changelog below.

I hope the stable release of the Android Pie launches till 1th of March. On the S9 was released till 1th of february, and i hope will be stable, and comes with new wallpapers, not the S8 walpapers, i’m expecting some changes here. Now i have the Android Pie Theme, One Theme Ui, still not the same as the original.
