Samsung became the first Android OEM in the world to release the June 2021 security update. The rollout started last week with the Galaxy Z Flip 5G, and the update then reached the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S20, Galaxy Z Flip, and the Galaxy A50. Now, a three-year-old smartphone, the Galaxy A8 (2018), has started getting the latest security patch.

The Galaxy A8 (2018) is getting a new software update in the UAE. The latest update has firmware version A530FXXSKCUF1 and includes the June 2021 security patch. Samsung has not detailed which privacy and security-related bugs it has fixed with the new update, though. The new software also likely includes other bug fixes and stability improvements.

If you are a Galaxy A8 (2018) user in the UAE, you can check for the OTA update by navigating to Settings » Software update and tapping on Download and install. Alternatively, you can also download the entire firmware file from our firmware database and flash it manually.

Samsung had launched the Galaxy A8 (2018) back in January 2018 with Android 7.1.1 Nougat. The phone received two major Android updates: Android 8.0 Oreo and Android 9 Pie (with One UI). The Galaxy A8 (2018) won’t receive major Android OS updates anymore, and it is currently on Samsung’s biannual security update schedule.
