Samsung just started gradually rolling out an OTA update for last year’s Galaxy Note8 and it’s an important one. Reportedly, the first stop is France, but we expect it hit other markets soon enough.
The patch weighs in at around 712MB, has a build number N950FXXU5CRHA and carries two new exciting features that weren’t previously available to the handset – AR Emoji and Super Slow-Motion video capture. Both are pretty self-explanatory and have been made available for the Galaxy S9-series and the new Galaxy Note9 since launch.
However, the Galaxy S9 and S9+ received an OTA update back in July enabling a manual [email protected] video recording for 0.4 seconds but it remains unclear for now whether the Note8 will be having this option or will settle just for the [email protected] recording for 0.2 seconds.
In addition to the new features, the update applies the latest Android security patch for September 2018 along with the usual bug fixes, under the hood performance tweaks and stability improvements.
