Sprint now rolling out April security update for the Galaxy S8

Earlier this week, Sprint started rolling out this month’s security update for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ — and now it’s turned its attention to the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, distributing an identical release (G950USQU5DSD3/G955USQU5DSD3), which addresses five critical and dozens of high-risk vulnerabilities in the Android OS, as well as 15 that are exclusive to Samsung’s own software.

Sprint has been on the ball when it comes to software updates as of late. Just last month it started pushing out Android 9.0 Pie for the Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. More recently, however, it was the first carrier in the United States to start circulating the this month’s security update for the Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10e and, of course, the Galaxy S10+ — beating Samsung itself to the punch.

How do I install it on my device?

Like usual, Sprint is rolling out this latest upgrade in stages. To check to see if it’s available for your handset, head into Settings, navigate to Software update, then select Download and install. Or if you’re feeling impatient and would rather jump the queue, you can download the firmware from our database — using the links below — then extract it and flash it on to your device manually.
