September security updates begin to arrive on the Samsung Galaxy A8

29 September, 2016 Samsung Updates

Just the last day, we heard about the September security updates from Samsung and Google are arriving on the S6 and S6 Edge and today we have similar good news for owners of the Galaxy A8. According to GSM Arena, A8 model number SM-A800F is now getting upgraded with the latest security patches by the September security update.

The 295MB patch includes fixes from Google against 66 bugs and security threats, along with a few of Samsung's own tweaks to further stabilize and secure the overlying TouchWiz UI. After downloading and installing the patch, your A8's Build Number should change to MMB29K.A800FXXU1BP12. Apart from bringing in multiple underlying improvements, the user should also be able to experience better voice calls, slightly improved battery life, efficient RAM management and an overall upgrade in terms of performance. If you have the same model as the one mentioned above, you should be prompted to update your Galaxy A8 soon, though it might take a while to arrive on each and every device.
