Unlocked Galaxy S8 gets update with April 2019 security patch

Samsung has released the April security update for the unlocked Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. The Galaxy S8 is the last device on the list of Galaxy flagships that are currently eligible for monthly security updates to be getting this month’s security patch. The update is rolling out in a number of markets, including India, Iraq, Russia, and South Africa, with software version G950FXXS4DSD3/G955FXXS4DSD3.

It’s unclear if the update brings anything other than the latest security enhancements; a few fixes for issues introduced by the Android Pie update could be on board. As far as the April 2019 security patch is concerned, it 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. Details on what trouble these vulnerabilities can cause can be seen at the company’s dedicated security updates blog.

You should be able to download the latest update for your Galaxy S8 or S8+ over the air from the Software update submenu in the phone’s settings app by tapping Download and install. As usual, we have the firmware for the new update available in our database for those who wish to upgrade without waiting for the over-the-air release.

We don’t have release-dates of Pie-updates. You could check your Samsung Members-app under “notices”: there should be a release-schedule ^HL
