Samsung is rolling out a new software update for the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+. The update is primarily meant to update the device to the latest Android security patch for the month of July 2018. This is actually the first flagship smartphone from Samsung to receive the latest security maintenance release.

Samsung has released this software update for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ in Brazil so far. It was previously released for Verizon’s variant in the United States as well. It may only be a matter of time before the update is also released for the aforementioned devices in other markets across the globe as well.

Not only does this update bring the latest security patch, it also includes camera improvements and enhances Bluetooth stability. The changelog for this update doesn’t specify what particular camera improvements have been made with this software update but I guess we’ll just have to take Samsung’s word for it.

The software update version G950FXXS3CRG1 and G955FXXS3CRG1 is being rolled out for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ in Brazil, respectively. The update is being rolled out in the country over-the-air and should go live for all users who haven’t received the update notification on their handsets just yet.
