The Galaxy Note 8 from last year is receiving a software update that adds the latest Android security patch from Google, the same package that was seeded to the Galaxy S8 lineup earlier this month. The update shifts the software version of the phone to version N950FXXU4CRH3 and has been currently released for users in the UAE with rollout to other regions to be processed in the coming days.
As reported by SamMobile, this is the second update to the Note 8 within a week as an earlier update appears to have had too many bugs which needed the South Korean giant to roll out fixes to the update that brought the latest security. Users who’re getting the August security patch from Google now, need not worry as this will be the only update they’ll be seeded.
The changelog reads “security improvements” but as always modifications to the performance could also be expected since the previous update included refinements to the Game Launcher app, which wasn’t stated on the changelog. While users will be prompted of an update if the same is being rolled out to them, they can also manually check for the same by heading over to Settings » Software update menu on their phone.
The Galaxy Note 8 is powered by the Exynos 8895 with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. There’s a 6.3-inch QuadHD+ AMOLED screen on the front with a resolution of 1440 x 2960 pixels and an 18.5:9 aspect ratio. The Note 8 flaunts a dual 12MP+12MP camera setup at the back with an 8MP front-facing selfie sensor. The device currently runs on Android 8.0 Oreo but being a flagship, it’s likely that Samsung will roll out an update to Android P when Google’s latest OS goes official.
