In the midst of updating its Galaxy smartphones with the May Android security patches, Samsung has pushed out a new firmware for its new Galaxy flagship smartphones, S8 and S8+.

While the update bundles the usual stability and performance improvements along with bug fixes like other usual firmware updates, the significance of this rollout is that it fixes the Bluetooth connectivity issue. It also fixes a bug that led the handset to reboot when controlling the music player through a wireless speaker, reports Sammobile.

According to users, the update is seeding in the United Arab Emirates and Germany, with fixes for SD card and May Android security patches. As detailed in its Security blog, Samsung addressed a total of 54 common vulnerabilities and exposures (CVE), in addition to 11 patches designed for Galaxy smartphones.

The May Android Security patches, as a separate update, have already been seeding for the S8 duos.

The latest update also updates camera firmware. It should eventually hit other markets too. To check out the availability of the update head over to Settings>> Software Update then press Download Updates manually.
