April 2018 security patch update now hitting the Galaxy Note 8

The Android 8.0 Oreo update for the Galaxy Note 8 started rolling out last month, and by now the update has likely reached most — if not all – Note 8 users around the world. Samsung, thankfully, isn’t sitting around after giving Note 8 owners the major update they should have received much earlier and has now released a new software update for the device to bring it up to speed with the latest security fixes. The update is rolling out to the Note 8 in Iraq with build number N950FXXU3CRD7, and we’re assuming its availability will be expanded to other markets in the next couple of days.

Galaxy Note 8 April 2018 security patch

As usual, it’s possible not every market will get the latest security patch. The Galaxy Note 8 is on a monthly security update schedule, but Samsung tends to skip an update here and there and go directly to the next security patch in some countries. You can check if the new post-Oreo update is available on your Note 8 in the Settings » Software update menu. If it does start downloading for you, do leave a comment to let us know (also tell us which country you’re in, so other readers can know if the update is available for them, and whether you see anything new or different after installing the update).

The Galaxy S9 also started receiving the April security patch update earlier today, so here’s hoping the Galaxy S8 will soon join the party. For details on the April 2018 security patch, head over to this link.

Made the mistake of updating my note 8 to this version.The only thing this stupid update did was disabling all the sensors on the phone.So DO NOT UPDATE TO THIS VERSION.

BTW anyone else have the issue?

Comprei o Note 8. Um cel ótimo, mais sou um usuário facinado pela tecnologia mobile. Estou triste e arrependido porque a Samsung não liberou o Android 8.0 pro Brasil. Obs:meu cel e desbloqueado, não é de operadora.

Eu cansei de ficar esperando e instalei a versão francesa (XEF) no meu Note 8 desbloqueado à 04 dias. O telefone está funcionando perfeitamente até agora. Baixei o firmware oficial aqui mesmo na sammobile.
