The Four-Year-Old Samsung Galaxy S8, S8+ gets the latest security patch update


Samsung Galaxy S8, S8+ aren’t even running on 2019’s Android 10 OS. However, the company is not giving up on the Quarterly update cycle for the 2017 flagships. Accordingly, the devices have received a new update.

Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8+ with model numbers SM-G950F and SM-G955F respectively are getting a new update. As per the Sammobile report, the S8 is getting the firmware version G950FXXSBDUA3 and S8+ G955FXXSBDUA3 across Latin America(Exynos models).

Back in February 2019, Samsung rolled out the One UI update for the Galaxy S8-Series delivering the promise of extending the One UI to older Android versions(pie). However, they haven’t received any major updates after that. In fact, the company pushed them to the Quarterly cycle last year.

Considering it’s been four years since the official launch, it is appreciative of Samsung to at least roll out the security patches for those who are clinging on to their devices. Speaking of which, Samsung Galaxy S8’s IP68 and GPS locator have saved lives in the past. The devices, which were a solid offering of their time, might still be living to see another day for some even today.


Hence, if you are someone who is having one of these devices, we suggest you update it to the latest security patch ASAP(as soon as possible). You can do it by navigating to Settings->Software Update->Download and Install.

Coming back, the update doesn’t have any other changes apart from the January 2021 security patch

. And this OTA(over-the-air) should extend to all the other regions and versions soon so if you haven’t received it yet, don’t panic.
