June 2020 security update hits Galaxy Note 8 units on Verizon, Xfinity


Last updated: June 10th, 2020 at 11:37 UTC+01:00

The June 2020 Android security update started rolling out to select Galaxy Note 8 models in the United States on Tuesday. Identified by build number N950USQS7DTE5, the latest software update is now reaching the SM-N950U models on Verizon Wireless and Xfinity Mobile. The arrival of the new firmware version comes mere three days after the June 2020 security patch first began making its way to international variants of the Galaxy Note 8 (SM-N950F), i.e. the ones utilizing Samsung’s own Exynos 8895 SoC as opposed to Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835.

Owners of eligible Galaxy Note 8 models on Verizon and Comcast’s networks will soon be notified about the new update’s availability via a push notification. Those who are feeling particularly imaptient can always attempt triggering the over-the-air download manually from the smartphone’s Settings app. Alternatively, SamMobile’s firmware archive contains the latest official Android images made for this particular Galaxy Note 8 iteration.

Galaxy Note 8 nearing its end-of-life line

The Galaxy Note 8 is quickly approaching its third full year on the market, meaning its after-sales software support is now coming to a definitive end, as well. Like all major Samsung flagships released in recent memory, this particular lineup has been enjoying monthly security patches for almost three years. Its last such update should arrive in September, following which it will start receiving security updates on a quarterly basis.

All things considered, the Galaxy Note 8 had a rather good run, especially given its unenviable task of making up for the disaster called the Galaxy Note 7. Today, nearly three years following its debut, the Galaxy Note family has completely shaken off its ghosts of combustible past and appears to have a guaranteed place in Samsung’s mobile plans – both near-term and in the long run.
