One of the biggest advantages of using a Samsung smartphone is the fact that you are always the first in line to get Google’s latest operating system updates. The perfect example of this is how Galaxy S8 which was released in 2017 is now getting a second Android 9.0 Pie update. Android 9.0 Pie is Google’s latest operating system update and it comes with lots of new features and software tweaks that help smartphones run faster than they usually do.
Second Android 9.0 Pie Update Available for Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 +
As previously mentioned, Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 + users should be happy to know that Google is releasing a new software update for them. The update sports the “G950FXXU4ZSAC” build number for Galaxy S8 and “G955FXXU4ZSAC” build number for Galaxy S8 +.
Although, we need to mention that the second Android 9.0 Pie update is being rolled out only to Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 + users who are enlisted in the Android beta program. Fortunately, enlisting in the beta program is super simple and the only thing that users need to do in return is to provide Google with serious feedback.
Bug Fix for Lock Screen Freeze
If there are any Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 + users who are wondering if this update is worth downloading, then they should know that this is actually a top priority download. The new update introduces a software fix that takes care of an annoying bug which caused the screens of Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 + to randomly freeze.
The lock screen freeze bug fix is not the only thing that the new update introduces. The update also helps the microSD card of Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 + by taking care of an issue which caused the music downloaded from External Sources to disappear.
