Earlier this year, Samsung had removed the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ from its software support list. However, the company surprised everyone by releasing a new security update to the smartphones in September 2021. Now, the South Korean firm has released one more software update to its five-year-old phones.

The Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ are getting new updates with firmware version G95xFXXUCDUK1. The update has been released in France, and it could expand to more markets over the next few days. It brings the November 2021 security patch that fixes dozens of privacy and security-related vulnerabilities.

If you are a Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+ user in France, you might have already received a notification of the new update. If you haven’t received the update yet, you can check for the update manually by navigating to Settings » Software update and tapping on Download and install. You can also download the new firmware file from our firmware database and flash it manually.

Samsung had launched the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ in early 2017 with Android 7.0 Nougat. The devices received the Android 8.0 update in 2018 and the Android 9 Pie-based One UI update in 2019.
