AT&T Releases new update for the Galaxy Note 8 devices


The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 from AT&T is receiving a new software update which seems to bring various fixes while improving both the system stability and network performance. Additionally, the latest software release includes the Android security patch for the month of October, as well as a couple of additional fixes for the BlueBorne and KRACK Wi-Fi vulnerabilities.

The entire package weighs up to 386MB and in order to be eligible for the update, the device must be running one of the two previous builds – “N950USQU1AQH7” or “N950USQU1AQIA.”  The current update is identified by the build number “N950USQU2BQJA” and unsurprisingly, AT&T is distributing the new software in a gradual manner. The rollout should be carried over the course of the next few days, prompting an increasing number of Samsung Galaxy Note 8 owners to be greeted by an update notification.

Otherwise, eligible customers can attempt to trigger the update by heading down to ‘Settings’ > ‘Software update’ and hitting the ‘Check for updates’ button.
