T-Mobile Galaxy S8 and S8+ receiving security updates


Time for you Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ owners to update!

T-Mobile is now pushing software updates to its Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ models. Galaxy S8 owners should look out for version G950USQU2BQK5 which weighs in at 417.68MB, while Galaxy S8+ owners will be getting version G955USQU2BQK5 that weighs in at 151.98MB.

As for what’s included, the big addition are the November 2017 Android security patches. T-Mobile says that there are “various system improvements” included as well, but there’s no mention of exactly what those improvements might be.

If you’ve got a Galaxy S8 or S8+ and haven’t yet updated, you can either wait for the OTA update to arrive or manually check for it by going to Settings > Software update > Download updates manually.

Thanks, Juan!

    Old news. I got the update a few days ago.

      He uses Internet Explorer, so his delay is understandable…

      I saw Verizon users reporting they got the update a couple of days ago, but I got it this morning. What I want to know is why the S8 update is so significantly larger than the S8+ update…hmm

        It’s not. It’s about 415MB. The article is incorrect.

    Odd my S8+ update from T-mobile is clocking in @ 415.03 MB. 955USQU1AQJ8. Bizarre, but glad to see that Samsung is doing a better job with updates with this model.

    I got it early Saturday morning

    I just want Oreo already. 8.1 is out and we’re still stuck in 7.0. I’d try the beta but the option doesn’t show up on my Samsung+ app.

      If you want the latest version of Android, you might as well get the Google Pixel 2. Mine had Android 8.0 out of the box in late October. Got the 8.1 update with December security patch last week. Samsungs and other OEMs will always be behind in terms of Android version.
