    New Galaxy S8+ May update improves camera stability

    Firmware

    The Galaxy S8+ was one of the first few devices which received the May 2019 security patch earlier this month. However, Samsung is now rolling out a new Galaxy S8+ May update today. There are no big ticket items included in the update so don't expect much in the way of new features.

    Germany was the first country where Samsung rolled out the May 2019 security patch for the Galaxy S8+. Today's update also happens to be rolling out in Germany first. It weighs in at quite a bit more than the first May update.

    New Galaxy S8 May update rolling out

    Since the device has already received the latest security maintenance release, it doesn't apply a new monthly patch. Samsung won't actually be detailing June's patch until next week at the very least.

    The changelog of this update, bearing version number G955FXXU4DSE4, only mentions camera stability improvements and an update for the security patch. We checked anyway just to be certain if features like the new Night mode and Scene Optimizer had trickled down perhaps. That's a hard no.

    The original May 2019 update for the Galaxy S8+ weighed in at just over 400MB while the firmware that's rolling out today comes in at north of 600MB. Whatever changes it applies behind-the-scenes must be significant enough to warrant a second update in the same month.

    Samsung is now rolling out this firmware version over-the-air in Germany. You can also download it from our firmware section. It may not be long before the Galaxy S8 also receives this update. Users in other markets across the globe will eventually get the update as well.
