While dozens of Samsung devices have already received the July 2021 security update, the Galaxy J8 is just now getting the June 2021 security update. However, the mid-range smartphone was released in 2018, and it is now three years old, and it is heartening to see Samsung updating once every few months.

The Galaxy J8 has started getting a new software update in Caucasus countries, Kazakhstan, and Ukraine. It carries firmware version J810FJXU5CUF2 and includes the June 2021 security patch. In its security update documentation, Samsung mentioned that the June 2021 patch fixes close to four dozen security vulnerabilities in its Galaxy devices. Don’t expect this update to bring any new UI changes or new features, though.

If you are a Galaxy J8 user in any of the regions mentioned above, you might have received a notification for the update. If you haven’t received it yet, you can check for the update manually by navigating to Settings » Software update and tapping on Download and install. You can also opt to download the latest firmware file from our firmware database and flash it manually.

Samsung had launched the Galaxy J8 in May 2018 with Android 8.0 Oreo. The smartphone received the Android 9 update in mid-2019 and the Android 10-based One UI 2 update in mid-2020.
