Exynos-powered Galaxy S8 gets November security update


Last updated: November 26th, 2019 at 08:56 UTC+01:00

Samsung started rolling out the November security update for its devices before the month even started, but the rollout of the update is far from over and the company continues to bring it to more and more Galaxy devices as we approach December. Over the last week, Samsung released the November update for the Snapdragon variants of the Galaxy S8 and S8+ in the US, and it has now released the update for the global Exynos-powered models as well.

Over in Mexico, a new update, carrying software version G950FXXS6DSK7 and G955FXXS6DSK7 for the S8 and S8+ respectively, is rolling out, and we should soon see it making its way to other markets as well. The update includes only the latest security fixes; no new features are on board, and unless Samsung actually ends up updating the Galaxy S8 to Android 10, the 2017 flagship will only be receiving security updates for the rest of its support cycle.

You can download the update on your Galaxy S8 or S8+ over the air by opening the phone’s Settings app, selecting Software update, then tapping Download and install. You can also update your phone by downloading the latest firmware from our firmware archive and flashing it on the device using a Windows PC.
