First up, the Samsung Galaxy S8 Active is now receiving a 99.38MB update to version G892USQS1ARA1. The update changelog only says “The security of your device has been improved”, and after updating, the About Phone screen shows that the GS8 Active is now on the January 1, 2018 Android security patch level.

T-Mobile’s support page says that this Galaxy S8 Active update also includes various bug fixes and security improvements.


The T-Mobile version of the LG G6 is also receiving a software update. This update bumps the G6 to software version H87211g and includes the December 1, 2017 Android security patch level. Also included are “software stability and bug fixes“.


If you’ve got the Samsung Galaxy S8 Active or LG G6 and haven’t updated your phone recently, be on the lookout for your phone’s update in the coming days.

Thanks, Phil and Bill!
