Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ January update rolling out now

Samsung has finally started rolling out the January 2018 security patch to its flagship devices. As expected, the company started off with mid-range handsets like the Galaxy A5 (2017) and the original Galaxy A8. Samsung has released the latest security maintenance update for flagship devices this week starting with the Galaxy S6 edge in India and the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge in China just yesterday.

The company is now rolling out the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ January update. The firmware has been released for both handsets in China.

Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ January update

Samsung is now rolling out firmware version G9500ZCU2AQL2 for the Galaxy S8 (SM-G9500) in China. It’s a minor update that brings the January 2018 security patch. It’s available for download from our firmware section.

It has also released firmware version G9550ZCU2AQL2 for the Galaxy S8+ (SM-G9550) in the country. It’s also readily available for download from our firmware section.

This year’s first security maintenance release for Samsung handsets brings fixes for five critical Android vulnerabilities and fixes for 13 Vulnerabilities and Exposures (SVE) in the company’s own software.

The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ January 2018 security patch may only have been released in China right now but it’s only a matter of time before it’s rolled out elsewhere.

My S8+ is still stuck on October patch on O2 UK, why are networks so bad at releasing sometimes very critical monthly security updates?
