AT&T releasing updates for Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8 Plus

U.S. network provider AT&T is reportedly rolling out its first software update for the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus smartphones.

According to a fresh report by the Android Soul, the 5.8-inch new smartphone has started receiving the firmware build G950USQU1AQD9, while the bigger 6.2-inch device is set to get the firmware build G955USQU1AQD9.

The updates are being distributed over-the-air (OTA) and AT&T has plans to roll out the updates in stages. Thus, the mobile network provider will likely need multiple days to complete the rollout. The updates are approximately 300MB in size each.

While the contents of the new updates are presently unknown, experts believe that AT&T is likely distributing new security patches to the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus smartphones.
