New Samsung Galaxy Note8 update brings security improvements

Himanshu, 02 February 2018

Shortly after rolling out the January security patch to the Galaxy Note8, Samsung has started pushing out a new update to its flagship smartphone. Carrying the build number of N950FXXU3BRA8, the update is currently hitting units in Brazil and France.

The change-log only mentions "improved security." It's quite possible that the update includes fixes for the Meltdown and Spectre security vulnerabilities, as Verizon Note8 recently received these fixes through an update.

Have you received the update? If you noticed any changes let us know in comments below.
