Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, launched in early 2017 to much acclaim, received their final update in May 2021. The company has now issued another update for both smartphones.

  • According to a report, the changelog for the G95*FXXUCDVG4 firmware says “GPS stability has been improved” and that’s about it. That doesn’t sound like enough to account for the 420MB download size, but if there are any other fixes, they’re not important enough to mention.
  • The GPS fix looks like the one sent to Galaxy J7 phones in Asia. The J7 has been around since 2015. Also, it may not be the only older phone to get the update, GSM Arena reports.
  • Samsung has extended support for its flagship smartphones to provide four major OS updates and five years of security patches, but the company’s new commitment only covers handsets launched in or after 2021.
  • Older devices, including the S10 series, and those from the Galaxy A and M series are getting 4 years of security updates, based on the company’s update policy.
