The Galaxy Note 8 gets its first “major” update ahead of its official launch


The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 was announced last month, and wasn’t supposed to be available until September 15th, but we know that many of our readers have already received their pre-orders. It’s likely that Samsung is not sleeping at the wheel either, as the company has pushed its first big update to the device.

This update, with build number N950FXXU1AQI1 brings along with it some camera improvements, along with the August Android security patch. A few days ago, Samsung published all of the different patches that were implemented with the latest update, which goes hand-in-hand with Google’s security patch.

As for what updates have been made to the camera, there is no specific mention regarding what has been changed, so we’ll just have to hang tight to see what’s in store. Surprisingly, Samsung provided no description in the software update changelog, so these may just be minor changes that won’t be truly found until using the camera on a regular basis.

As a reminder, the Galaxy Note 8 is set to launch this Friday through all four major carriers, and will also be available from Best Buy and Amazon. If you have already received your Galaxy Note 8 and the update, feel free to give us a shout to let us know of anything different that has been included.
