Sprint Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus get update with June security patch and bug fixes

with 0 Comment

Sprint is rolling out a new software update to its Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ handsets which installs the June security patch on both the handsets. The OTA is arriving with the following builds:

  • Sprint Galaxy S8: G950USQU1AQFJ
  • Sprint Galaxy S8+: G955USQU1AQFJ

Sprint is admittedly pretty late to roll out the June security patch especially when most of the mid-range handsets from Samsung are already on the latest security patch — July.

Nevertheless, as the saying goes, it’s “better late than never.” For those of you who are wondering about specifics of the new update, it brings along with it several fixes alongside the June 2017 security patch.

Speaking of which, the issues surrounding the Find My Mobile have been fixed with the new update. There’s a fix for the LTE Roaming issues as well as SMS fix for “(/5)Ok.”

As is the case with all the OTA updates, it might take a while for the notification to pop up on your screen. If you can’t wait, however, go to Settings > About phone > System updates to check for the update manually.

For the unaware, the HTC U11 was announced a couple of months ago. It, ever since, has received positive reviews for the most part from critics and public alike.

And if we were to add, it really is a pretty good Android handset with top-notch specs and latest Android OS (that is if you can afford it). Of course, it doesn’t come with a bezel-less display like Galaxy S8 or the LG G6, but it’s a stellar phone nonetheless.

We are exactly a month away from the official launch of the Galaxy Note 8 and the leaks seem to have picked up the pace. The latest one to join the rumor mill reveals the color choices for Galaxy Note 8.

Although there hasn’t been any image of the Galaxy Note 8 posted to back up the claims, Roland Quandt, a renowned leakster, reveals on Twitter that the upcoming smartphone will be offered in Black, Orchid Grey, and new Deep Blue colors.

His exact tweet read “Samsung Galaxy Note 8 coming in Black, Orchid Grey and a new Deep Blue. At least.” Of course, there will be other colors as well, that’s what the above tweet suggests too.

Samsung had only yesterday confirmed that the Note 8 will be unveiled on August 23.

The smartphone is expected to feature a huge display which has always been the case with Note series phones. Only this time, the overall footprint will be a bit small, thanks to the near bezel-less Infinity Display.

Other rumored features include a Snapdragon 836 SoC, either 64GB or 128GB storagedual speaker setup, and more.

It’s nearly been a couple of months since Andy Rubin unveiled the Essential Phone promising that the handset will ship within 30 days. Well, the date came and went and yet there’s been no word from the company regarding the same.

He said that the Essential Phone is currently “going through certification and testing with multiple US and international carriers.” So, once the testing is done, the product should arrive at the doorsteps of folks who have registered for the product already.
