Samsung’s sustainability efforts in recent years have led to a few key changes to the company’s manufacturing processes as well as the retail packaging of its products. And in recent news, Samsung has released a new infographic that tells the eco-conscious journey of the Galaxy S flagship series — or rather its packaging — over […]
The January 2021 security update has now started hitting select variants of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, Samsung’s popular flagship duo from 2017. More specifically, the new over-the-air release has reached the Exynos models across Latin America. These firmware revisions are identified by version numbers G950FXXSBDUA3 and G955FXXSBDUA3 for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, respectively. Beyond the […]
An over-the-air software update containing the September 2020 Android security patch level is now making its way to select variants of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. Unsurprisingly, the release carries no other changes or additions. That train sailed a while ago, but that isn’t to say the Galaxy S8 lineup – released in February […]
The Galaxy S8 series may be pushing four, but it’s still doing a rather decent job at keeping up with its (much) younger siblings in terms of software support. Case in point: the timely arrival of the June 2020 Android security update to the 2017 flagships. Samsung started deploying the said firmware to unlocked, Exynos […]
Samsung's version of the May 2020 Android security patch is now hitting international variants of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, its seminal 2017 flagships.
Samsung doesn’t release more than two major Android OS updates for its devices and doesn’t really keep flagship devices on the monthly release schedule for security updates beyond three years. That’s just the way it is and there’s no indication of this changing any time soon. With the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ now crossing […]
Samsung has yet to officially publish the April 2020 security patch details as of this writing, but some Galaxy smartphones have already received it, including the Galaxy S10 and Note 10. Now it’s the Galaxy S8 series’ turn (SM-G950F/SM-G955F), as a new firmware update is rolling out in numerous countries, and although this OTA release […]
Samsung’s flurry of security updates continues as the March 2020 security patch is now rolling out to two more smartphone models, the Galaxy S8 series and the Galaxy Note 8. Unsurprising given the age of these models, the update doesn’t add any new software features but ensures that the security of these devices remains up […]
In a classic case of the left hand not knowing what the right is doing, Samsung’s customer reps have previously claimed, not once but twice, that the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8 will receive Android 10 this year. As hopeful as that may sound, that’s simply not going to happen. The two aforementioned smartphones […]
Samsung has been quite active in releasing timely updates and security patches to its smartphones and tablets over the past year. It has already released the Android 10 update to most of its flagship smartphones. Now, it is being reported that the Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+, Galaxy S8 Active, and the Galaxy Tab S6 on […]
US carrier Sprint is running a great offer for Galaxy smartphone owners, allowing them to repair the broken screen of their Galaxy handset for the very low price of $49. What’s better is that you don’t have to be a Sprint customer to take advantage of this offer. You can be another carrier’s customer and […]
Hope is a good thing. What isn’t good is to keep giving someone hope only to disappoint them each time. But Samsung’s customer representatives love doing that, and they’re at it again. We’ve seen before how Samsung’s customer reps have said the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8 will be getting Android 10. That’s despite […]
The Galaxy S8 and S8+ may not be eligible for the Android 10 update, much to the annoyance of those who purchased either device, but Samsung is continuing to release regular security updates for 2017’s flagship Galaxy S smartphone(s). This week, the company is rolling out the January 2020 security update to the Galaxy S8 […]
The unlocked versions of three pre-2019 Samsung flagships are getting the December security update this week in the US. Samsung has released the December update for the Galaxy S8/S8+, Galaxy S9/S9+, and the Galaxy Note 8 in the country. The software versions for the Galaxy S8/S8+, Galaxy S9/S9+ and Galaxy Note 8 updates are G95*U1UES7DSL2, G96*U1UEU7CSK1 and N950U1UES7DSK5 […]
Android 10 isn’t on the cards for the Galaxy S8 (and S8+), but Samsung is continuing to release regular security updates for its 2017 flagship. Less than a month back, Samsung rolled out the November 2019 security patch to the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ in various markets, and the company is now bumping the […]
