New Galaxy S8 update brings Bluetooth and NFC improvements

Samsung has started pushing out a new update to its Galaxy S8/S8+ flagship smartphones. The update, which is currently hitting international Exynos variants, is around 465MB in size. As for changes, it brings along several improvements, including those related to Bluetooth, NFC, as well as device stability.


So as you can see, Bluetooth connectivity and stability has been improved. And same goes for device stability and the NFC feature. As is usually the case, there are some bug fixes as well. And finally, the update also includes a new security patch, presumably the March one.

Over in the US, carrier Sprint has also started rolling out a new update to Galaxy S8 units on its network. Although the size of the update is over 200MB, the change-log just says it is aimed at improving the security of the device.
