Earlier this year, Samsung removed the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ from its software support list. However, the company surprised everyone by releasing a new security update for smartphones in September 2021. Now, the South Korean company has released another software update for its five-year-old phones.

Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ get new updates with firmware release G95xFXXUCDUK1. The update has been released in France and may roll out to other markets over the next few days. It brings the November 2021 security patch which fixes dozens of privacy and security related vulnerabilities.

If you are a Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+ user in France, you may have already received a notification of the new update. If you haven’t received the update yet, you can check for the update manually by going to Settings » Software update and tapping on Download and install.
