Firmware

Last updated: September 6th, 2019 at 12:48 UTC+02:00

The Galaxy Note 8 is now receiving a software update that brings the September 2019 security patch to the device. Samsung was quick to push out the September patch to the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+, and it seems the Galaxy Note 8 has managed to grab a seat on the express update train alongside the company’s newest Note flagships. The Note 8 update is available in Germany and sports software version N950FXXS7DSHC.

Galaxy Note 8 owners will find nothing but the latest security patch in the update that’s rolling out right now. The September patch brings fixes for four critical vulnerabilities that were found in the Android operating system and 17 vulnerabilities that only affect Samsung’s software. The latter include a vulnerability that enabled brute force attacks on the screen lock password and one that allowed attackers to change the USB configuration without needing to unlock a secured device.

You will be able to download the Galaxy Note 8 update over the air by hitting the Download and install option in the Software update section of your phone’s Settings app. As always, you can also upgrade by downloading the relevant firmware from our firmware archive and flashing it on your phone manually using a Windows PC.
