Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus Receiving the August Security Update

14 August, 2017 Samsung Updates

Although the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus are usually the first ones to receive the latest security patches from Samsung, they were beaten to the August security patch by the Galaxy J7 Prime this month. Nevertheless, the two flagship handsets have now started to receive the August SMR from the OEM yesterday. As of now, SamMobile Reports that only UAE, Turkey and Germany are receiving the update, but it's only a matter of days before Samsung's respective departments in every other region also starts sending out the same update via OTA to the S8 and S8 Plus.

The August patch is a really heavy one at 600.35 MB, so you better fire up your Wi-Fi before downloading this one. You can check out the firmware version and other change details in the screenshot above if you want. Just like all other security patches from Samsung, this one also has 12 of Samsung's own fixes and patches for its own overlaying UI, in addition to the 28 Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures present in the base Android OS.

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