August Security Patch Finally Begins Rolling Out for Unlocked Versions of the Galaxy S8 and S8+ in the US

31 August, 2017 Samsung Updates

Contrary to every other place in the world, the United States of America is not a good place to buy an unlocked Samsung device if you want fast updates! In the last few years, it has been established that carrier versions will always receive the latest updates before unlocked versions in the country. We are not sure if it's a business decision, but it isn't an unlikely explanation. Nevertheless, the good news is that the unlocked S8 and the S8 + have finally started to receive the latest security patch from the OEM.

In case you are wondering, the same patch was already released previously on all major carriers which include AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, USC and Virgin Mobile USA. The 600+ MB package will arrive via OTA and the firmware version on it will be G950U1UEU1AQH3. Check to see if it has already arrived from Settings > Software Update. If it isn't there yet, just wait for a few hours and try again.

Head over to our firmware section to find all the latest available updates for your Samsung smartphones and tablets.
