Time and again Samsung has proved that its reliability in providing device support and firmware updates is unmatched. And providing firmware updates for a device that has not even released globally yet in all regions, itself proves how much Samsung gives importance to aspects like security updates and device’s stability management. Samsung is probably one such device that has continuously provided OS upgrades and other firmware updates for a number of devices since early last month. All these devices range from older flagships to newest flagship entries. Yet again, proving the worth of its reliability, Samsung has rolled out the Galaxy Note 8 August 2017 Security Update. This update is rolling from the European region as OTA (over-the-air) update. This OTA update weighs around 600 MB. So, it’s advisable if You are to download the OTA, better hook up to a strong Wi-Fi network.
This update brings the firmware build number N950FXXU1AQI1 for European variants of the Galaxy Note 8. The update aims to fix camera stability issues and device stability enhancements. Also, it brings forth an update for improving the stability of wireless charging. This update is based on Android 7.1.1 Nougat. As the update is rolled out Over-The-Air, so, it will take some time to reach your device. Alternatively, You can also download and install the firmware update directly from the Samsung’s server. We have a detailed guide later in this post that will help You in downloading and installing the latest update.
