Galaxy S7, S7 edge, unlocked US Galaxy Note 8 get February 2018 security patch

Samsung is rolling out the February 2018 security patch update to a couple of its flagships phones in different regions. Two of those are the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge, while the third is the unlocked variant of the Galaxy Note 8 in the US. The Note 8 first received the February patch last week in Italy, and it’s now being rolled out for unlocked units on the Verizon network. The Galaxy S7 and S7 edge update, meanwhile, is available in Panama, Bolivia, Colombia, and Trinidad and Tobago. The build number for the S7, S7 edge, and Note 8 updates is G930FXXU2DRB7G930FXXU2DRB7, and N950USQS3BRB1 respectively.

February 2018 security patch comes to more Samsung devices

Samsung’s been taking it rather slow with the February patch, no doubt because of the Galaxy S9 and S9+ (and possibly the Oreo update for the Galaxy S8), and with the month-end approaching, it doesn’t look like the February 2018 patch will be making their way to most Galaxy devices before March (or at all, if Samsung decides to skip ahead to the March security patch). To recap, the February patch fixes five critical and a multitude of low and medium-risk vulnerabilities in the Android OS, along with 16 vulnerabilities that only affect Samsung devices. More details on the patch can be seen on the company’s dedicated websites for Android security updates.

To grab the latest update, open the phone’s settings, navigate to and tap Software update, then tap Download updates manually. You can also download the firmware files from our database to upgrade using a PC.

My S7 Edge is still on January. My build number is G935AUCU4CRB5. And what is this Samsung Experience 9.0 crap? As far as I can tell it serves no purpose.

Samsung need to change they software plans . Firstly you need to make 1 firmware for every model of a flagship then preceding by choosing location to add some more programs just to make it easier for your software developer and for your engineers. I have a Galaxy Note 8 3 months now getting two updates with security patch still have a lot of system failure , mobile is restarting , sending feedback every couple of days and I’m thinking seriously to change from Samsung Note 8 to Huawei mate 10. Note 8 beta Oreo has been released month ago… Read more »

I believe there is a typo in the article, the model number is incorrect: ” for the S7, S7 edge, and Note 8 updates is G930FXXU2DRB7, G930FXXU2DRB7, and N950USQS3BRB1 respectively.” Where the GS7edge is G935F. Also separately, are all of you checking for updates using Smart Switch also or just clicking “check updates” on the phone? (which sometimes has issues) PS: Personal Service Announcement: If you are so anxious and desperate to have the latest security or android version, go get a custom ROM or AOSP ROM with the latest nightly build. This is a bit counter intuitive as you… Read more »

Information concerning Feb security update US Unlocked Note 8 is not correct. Article lists N950USQS3BRB1 to be the Februari update. US firmware for Unlocked Note 8 will start with [email protected]@@@@@@@. The reported update is for one of the branded US Note 8’s, i.c. Verizon and moreover it was already released on 23 February….

1: AFS is not a valid CSC. Did you mean Afganistan (AFG)?
2: Oreo for the S7 and S7 Edge do not exist officially yet. You will have to be patient, but I am sure that the people from Sammobile will let you know once we get the information

Currently only on Vidéotron. You can change CSC, select VTR, update and switch back to KDO CSC. Did that on my Rogers S7 and it works
