Galaxy Note 8 units in Kenya can now switch to July security patch level

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 July security update

It’s been over a week since Samsung Galaxy Note 8 users in Europe started receiving the latest July 2019 security update. And the same update is finally set to touch down the Kenyan shores carrying software version N950FXXS7DSG1.

It’s unclear if this same update also adds the QR code reading feature to the camera app, but given the Galaxy S8 and S8+ got this feature via the July security patch, it’s likely that the Galaxy Note 8 will also receive a similar treat via the new update.

This means that you’ll no longer require Bixby Vision or a third-party QR reader app for that matter in order to scan QR codes for Wi-Fi networks, website links, and even calendar events. Instead, the camera app will do the trick, but once the update is installed, you might need to enable the Scan QR codes feature from the camera settings in order to use it.

The firmware popped up online yesterday, which means Note 8 users in the country may have to wait until next week before the OTA download notification arrives. To check for the availability of the update, go to Settings > Software update > Download and install.
