Galaxy S8 and S8+ Finally Receiving the October Security Update in India

13 November, 2017 Samsung Updates

Samsung has not exactly been very orderly with their updates recently and if their schedule for rolling out last month's security patch is any sign of things to come, then the company might be reverting back to their old infamous routine where they released security patches and Android updates later than a top tier manufacturer should. Nevertheless, you should check your Galaxy S8 and S8+ if you live in India for the October security patch because starting 13 November, it did start rolling out to the two models in the region. Firmware version for the update is G955FXXU1AQJ5 for the Galaxy S8+ and G950FXXU1AQJ5 for the Galaxy S8. Both are exactly 492.74MB in size so get ready to hook it up to your Wi-Fi!

This delay comes in right after Samsung decided to skip the September security patch altogether. Although it's worth remembering that they did patch the BlueBorne security threat in time, which was probably the reason why they could not release the September security patch. Nevertheless, that still doesn't explain why Samsung's flagship handsets are receiving the October patch in the middle of November!

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