T-Mobile updating Galaxy S8, S8 Active, and LG G7 ThinQ with new security patches


T-Mobile is now pushing out the November 2019 security patches to a handful of Android phones.

First up, T-Mo says that it’s updating the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ to versions G950USQS7DSK2 and G955USQS7DSK2, respectively. The only item on the changelogs is the November 2019 security update.

Also being updated is the T-Mobile flavor of the Samsung Galaxy S8 Active. This update is version G892USQS6CSK1 and it, too, is only listed as including the November 1, 2019 security patches.


Finally, T-Mobile’s LG G7 ThinQ is receiving an update. It’s getting bumped up to version G710TM20f and, like the trio of aforementioned Samsung phones, the LG G7 is receiving the November 2019 security update.


These updates are now rolling out over the air, so if you haven’t gotten them already, you should soon. Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Active owners can manually check for their updates by launching the Settings app and selecting “Software update” followed by “Download updates manually”, while LG G7 owners can launch the Settings app and tap on the “General” tab followed by “Update center”, “System update”, and then touching “Check for update”.

Thanks, Chuck and Brent!
