Galaxy Note 8 update released with June 2019 security patch

Samsung has released a new update for the Galaxy Note 8, bringing the June 2019 security patch to the 2017 flagship. The June security update was released for the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy Note 9 earlier this month, but while those devices also received new features for the camera (like a dedicated Night mode), the Note 8 update only includes the latest security enhancements.

Only security enhancements in latest Galaxy Note 8 update

And the Note 8 and the Galaxy S8 probably won’t get the camera Night mode like their successors. That’s because they don’t have the same camera hardware as the Galaxy S10 lineup. Of course, you don’t need specific hardware to have a dedicated Night mode in the camera app, but the Galaxy Note 8 will soon be two years old and the Galaxy S8 already has crossed the two-year mark, so neither device is expected to get any new features, only security updates.

The Note 8 is currently getting the new update – software version N950FXXS6DSF2 – in Iraq, Vietnam, Thailand, Saudi Arabia and Serbia, and we should see more countries joining the party in the coming days. The update should be available over the air from the Software update menu of the phone’s Settings app. Galaxy Note 8 owners can also take the manual route and install the new software by downloading the related firmware from our database.

No more important updates for s8 and note 8 sadly just security patches that are pure nonsense if you ask me!With next phone ill chose some mid range phone like a 70 instead of flagship i get 2 major updates good camera and decent hardware for next two years for double cheaper price if i must change phone at two years because software vise there is no difference at samsung between flagship and mid range! And staying with samsung is tnx to ODIN an flashing firmwares!

lets see, s9 note 9 and note 8 with june.
anyone aware s10s no june or updated features.
Samsung hasnt a clue they will lose customers at this rate.
And exynos is NOT the only chip device on earth.

I think they won’t pushing only security updates, maybe finishing some new features or fixes as they were with May. Why not updating Snapdragon versions I can’t tell you

I got 2 May updates and I thought maybe Samsung wants to push the One UI 1.1(for June). I really want the enhancements and Digital Wellbeing. I have a S8.
Please update us through an article if that is going to happen. Peace out.

No update to the new version of the UI will be done with it. S8 is at the end of the support you just have to admit it as me 🙂 no new features certainly do not expect.) My other phone will definitely not samsung

As far as I know, in my case Bixby Vision supports QR code reader.

You are confused my friend. My wife just got the latest June update on her Exynos S9 plus with all the camera updates including night mode, improved selfie etc. . The QR code reader is there, but is within Bixby vision in the camera app.

The only confused you are the one I see about bixby nobody here but it is a feature in the camera which certainly note 8 or S8 do not get 🙂 so remember and read

@cardicek Learn how to read. I’m not a native English speaker and I understand it. I have an S9 plus and @MarinAndy and @Biransahin are both right. On my S9 plus, latest June update, there is NO dedicated QR code reader on it, it’s within Bixby vision. Fool.

You should read it again. He mentioned “dedicated QR code as on S9 plus and Note9.” There is NO dedicated QR code setting on latest update to S9 plus or Note9. .😉 Learn how to read and comprehend. It is in Bixby as @MarinAndy said. Dumbass! 😂😂
