Galaxy S8 and S8+ Receives Major Camera Improvement and Security Update

19 April, 2018 Samsung Updates

The Galaxy S8 and S8+ have just started to receive the April security patch in Germany, but we wouldn't be surprised if you are seeing the same update arrive for you in some other region as well. The security update patches in eight bugs in Samsung's own software and multiple other security threats to the Android OS that's running underneath. If you own the Galaxy S8, you should see the update arrive as firmware version G950FXXU1CRD7, while firmware version G955FXXU1CRD7 is making its way to the Galaxy S8+ owners in Germany (and hopefully all the other regions soon). The update is roughly 570MB in size as per reports.

More interestingly, both the updates are expected to bring improvements to the cameras of the two smartphones. Since the improvements are described only as "stability," it's hard to tell if it really improves anything noticeably. I will add though that ever since the Oreo upgrade, my Galaxy S8 has not been producing images as sharp as it used to, so I am hoping that this will change that for the better. Additionally, the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth functionalities will also be improved by the update and I can personally vouch for the fact that at least the S8 I won definitely needs an improvement on both fronts!
