Samsung begins April 2019 security patch rollout starting with Galaxy Note 8

A couple of days after publishing details about the April 2019 security patch, Samsung has kickstarted the rollout of the latest monthly update starting with the Galaxy Note 8. It appears the update is out since yesterday in Netherlands, Germany, Russia, Italy, and a few other regions. This comes just days after the carrier variants of the Note 8 in the US started receiving the Android Pie update with March security patch.

The April update bumps the software version, which varies by region, to N950FXXS5DSC5 in the Netherlands. Other than security fixes, the release doesn’t seem to bring any other notable changes to the Note 8. As detailed in the security bulletin, the April 2019 Security Maintenance Release (SMR) fixes five critical and dozens of high-risk Android OS vulnerabilities. It also patches fifteen Samsung Vulnerabilities and Exposures (SVE) items of varying severities.

To check if the update is available to your device, open the Settings app, go to Software Update, and tap on Download and install. Even in the regions where the rollout has begun, it is possible that all the devices may not receive the update immediately. If you don’t see the update yet but want to have it right away, you can download the latest Galaxy Note 8 firmware from our database and manually flash it.

  • Model: SM-N950F
  • Dimensions: 162.5 x 74.8 x 8.6mm
  • Display: 6.3" (160.02mm) Super AMOLED
  • CPU: Exynos 8895
  • Camera: 12 MP, 2x, 1 telephoto F2.4 and 1 wide angle F1.7 OIS

To me what they did with a bootloader from v4 to v4 and v5 is bullspit I bought my note 8 and was aiming to root it. I set up to root it after it arrived 3 weeks ago which it hadn’t been updated at all. But it auto updated, now I cant root? Like what idc if I mess my phone up that’s on me. Samsung needs to give an option for modification to phones of those who have paid in full for their device. Mines without warranty I mean ?? And I still get told what I can… Read more »

Since updating to this April update, if I’m on a call and am on the call screen, after pressing the power button my screen will momentarily turn off and then turn right back on. But if I navigate away from the call screen, to say, the Home screen, my screen will properly turn off and stay off after pressing the power button.

I did a factory reset when I faced the issue after this update, I’m using the exact same apps, and even replicated this situation in Safe Mode. Can anyone tell me if they are experiencing anything similar?

i hope they would fix animations of gestures as they stutters alot and fix the color of night mode too cz it is not pitch black like note 9 and s9 have rather it is dark grey that means it is not saving battery because pixels are still on.(you will see the difference in high brightness)

So they still haven’t added the features from the S9/+ I’m guessing. They have yet to also fix the curved edges on the note. It’s designed with the S series in mind and they seem to have just ported it to the Note8 and 9.
