T-Mobile Galaxy S8 and S8+, Note 8, and Note 10+ 5G receiving new updates


Last weekend T-Mobile updated the Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra with standalone 5G support and some other improvements. Now some former Samsung flagships are getting updates from T-Mo, too.

T-Mobile has released new updates for the Galaxy S8 and S8+ that bump the phones up to version G950USQS8DTJ2 and G955USQS8DTJ2, respectively. Both updates include the October 1, 2020 security patches.


The Galaxy Note 8 is getting an October 2020 security update, too. After installation, you Note 8 owners should find yourselves on version N950USQS8DTJ1.


An update for T-Mobile’s Galaxy Note 10+ 5G recently began rolling out that includes camera stability improvements, better Wi-Fi connectivity and stability, and improved touchscreen stability. This update is version N976USQU3CTJ2.

And finally, the Galaxy S10 5G was recently updated to version G977TUVU5DTJ2. This update includes the October 2020 security patches plus an upgrade to One UI 2.5, which brings Pro Video features like support for recording 8K video at 24 frames per second and video capture using the 21:9 aspect ratio. You can use Samsung DeX to wirelessly connect to a smart TV with this update, too, and you can also easily share a Wi-Fi password with a nearby Galaxy device.

If you’re rocking one of these Galaxy devices and haven’t gotten your new update yet, you can check for it by launching the Settings app, tapping on “Software update”, then selecting “Download updates manually”.

Thanks Alexander and Chuck!

    Not bad for a phone that’s almost 4 years old

      Even the S7 series was supposed to get an update, but not sure if or when it will happen from Tmo. Must’ve been a major security issue for Samsung to push one out.

        No-one is sure if the S7 series was updated because we all traded in our S7’s for the S20 FE

        • Sayahh

          Well, an update was released in Europe and Canada, so not sure if or when it is going to make it to the US and Tmo. How do you like your S20FE? Any issues?

          It is my daughter’s. She traded in the S7. It works very well especially considering the price. Turning it off is a bit awkward, since it doesn’t use a button. Camera is only 12 megapixels but compared to S7 much better photos in differing light conditions. She likes it.
