T-Mobile Galaxy S8 getting new update as LG V30 Pie update begins rolling out over the air


Following the Galaxy S9 update that came out yesterday, T-Mobile is now updating the Galaxy S8, too.

The Galaxy S8 and S8+ are receiving updates to versions G950USQU6DSH8 and G955USQU6DSH8, respectively. They include stability improvements for the Camera app and a QR code reader for the Camera app.

Strangely, the changelog also says “The security of your device has been improved,” but the security patch level still says August 1, 2019, which is the same level as the last Galaxy S8 update that came out in late August.

These updates are now rolling out over the air, and TmoNews reader Curt already got the update on their Galaxy S8. You can check for the update manually by going into Settings > Software update > Download updates manually.

Also of note is that it appears that T-Mobile is now pushing the LG V30’s Android Pie update out over the air. The update was available through LG’s Bridge software on the PC at the start of this week, but now T-Mobile LG V30 owners are reporting that the update is now popping up on their devices, which saves you the trouble of installing LG Bridge on your computer and plugging your phone into it so that you can update.

TmoNews reader Stephen got the update to version H93230d on their T-Mobile LG V30, bringing Android 9 Pie and the August 1, 2019 security patches. The update is 1812.6MB, but Stephen says the update requires around 2.5GB of free storage on your phone to begin downloading, so you may have to free up some space on your device before you can update.


Thanks, Curt and Stephen!
