The November Security Patch is Finally Making Its Way to the Galaxy S8

23 November, 2017 Samsung Updates

The Galaxy S8 was actually one of the last handsets in Samsung's elite line-up to receive the security patch for October, so we were not sure when the handset would be receiving the November patch. The good news is that the update is now rolling out to the S8 and S8+ handsets across Netherlands.

If you own a Galaxy S8, firmware version G950FXXU1AQK7 should be heading for your S8 any time now, provided you are in the Netherlands or at least in Europe! The Galaxy S8+ is also receiving the same update in the region, but in the form of firmware version G955FXXXU1AQK7. Both updates are quite big as it turns out and weigh in at roughly 545MB. Aside from the usual 61 fixes that this month's Google patch brings to all devices running on Android, this update will also address the Krack W-Fi vulnerability and make Bluetooth connections with device more stable. In case you are wondering when the S8 will start receiving the same update in your location, it's probably going to take a week at most.

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