    Samsung's May 2020 security patch rollout continues and the latest device to get it via a new update is the Galaxy Note 8 with model number SM-N950F. The latest update for the international Galaxy Note 8 is identified as version N950FXXSBDTE6.

    The update including the May 2020 security patch is now available for the Galaxy Note 8 in the Czech Republic, Hungary, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Nordic Countries, Slovakia, and Spain. It follows previous security patches including the March and April releases. Although the Galaxy Note 8 is no longer supported with major Android OS updates, it remains on Samsung's list of devices eligible for monthly security patches, at least for the time being. The latest security patch fixes 9 Android OS critical vulnerabilities and 18 Samsung Vulnerabilities and Exposures.

    If you're located in one of the markets mentioned above, you should be getting an update notification for the May 2020 security patch on your Galaxy Note 8. You can also attempt to trigger the update process manually by opening Settings, going to Software update, and  tapping Download and install. As always, you can circumvent all this and download the latest update with the May 2020 security patch from our firmware archive, then install it on your Galaxy Note 8 using a Windows PC.
