Samsung Galaxy S8+ Reportedly Receiving Firmware Update, Includes June Security Patch

As latest reports would have it, Samsung has begun pushing out a firmware update to its Galaxy S8+ handset in select markets. The new firmware update reportedly packs the June Android security patch that was recently launched by Google.

According to one report, the new update is now available in India aside from the European market. Samsung Galaxy S8+ consumers should start receiving the OTA notification for the update.

For those that are yet to get an update notification can manually check for the update via Settings > About Phone > System Update.

The update is about 450MB in size and reportedly brings a software build named G955FXXU1AQF7/ G955FOXM1AQF7/ G955FXXU1AQF7 with the tendency to differ – depending on the region.

The new update for the Samsung Galaxy S8+ also brings some minor changes where icons can be added to the left-hand side of the navigation bar, automatically offering more room to users without any form of blockage by the bar.

What’s more, the default number of available background colors in navigation bar also saw a change after the update.

Even better, the update also brought an improved quality of panorama images from Camera. As promised by Google, earlier this month, the June Android security update, which is included in the new firmware update, reportedly resolved about 100 issues.


Samsung Galaxy S8+ and Galaxy S8 handsets had earlier received a firmware upgrade that came with a fix for the red tint display issue that many users had reported.
