The Galaxy Note 8 is being updated with the latest Android security patch in a handful of markets around the world. Samsung has released an update in Taiwan, Bulgaria, Romania, Switzerland, and the Nordic region with software version N950FXXS5DSB4. This is the first software update for the Note 8 in these markets after the Android Pie update was released last month.

Second Pie-based update for the Galaxy Note 8

As such, we expect there to be some bug fixes and general improvements in there, although we will need to wait for the changelog to see if there’s anything substantial other than the March 2019 security patch. The March patch brings fixes for eight critical vulnerabilities that were discovered in the Android OS and 11 Samsung Vulnerabilities and Exposures (SVE) items, which affect only Samsung’s software. The Galaxy Note 8 is the first flagship to get the March patch, and we should see other flagships (including the Galaxy S10) to join the party in the coming days.

Those with a Note 8 in the markets mentioned above can open the Settings app on the phone, tap Software update, then tap Download updates manually to get the update over the air. Alternatively, you can flash the firmware for the latest update by grabbing it for your country from our firmware database.
