    The Galaxy Note 8 has already received the May 2019 security patch in other markets. The latest US Galaxy Note 8 update finally brings this patch Stateside. It's no secret that updates tend to arrive a little late in the country. The latest security maintenance release is now available for this device from two carriers.

    Comcast's Xfinity Mobile and Verizon have both released this firmware update for the Galaxy Note 8. It goes without saying that other carriers will soon follow suit as well.

    May 2019 security patch included in latest US Galaxy Note 8 update

    The carriers have released firmware version N950USQU5DSD9 for the Galaxy Note 8. It's rolling out over-the-air so users can expect to get it in the near future. The firmware is also available for download from our database.

    The changelog doesn't list any other changes. There don't seem to be any minor general improvements in this update as well. Its sole purpose is to apply the latest security patch. Samsung officially detailed the latest security maintenance release two weeks ago.

    It includes fixes for dozens of high, moderate and low risk vulnerabilities that were discovered in the Android operating system. Fixes were also applied for 21 Samsung Vulnerabilities and Exposures (SVE) items. These are the vulnerabilities that were found in Samsung's own software.

    Users can manually check if the update is available for their device as well. Just open the Settings app, tap on Software update, and then select Download and install. It's only a matter of time now before other US carriers release this update for the Galaxy Note 8 as well.
