Big carrier Verizon just released a changelog for a new Samsung Galaxy Note 8 update. While it doesn’t bring too many new features, the update is supposed to fix some important security and software issues. First, Verizon notes that the update provides the January security patch, which includes fixes for the dreaded Meltdown and Specter exploits. Other than that, the update is intended to fix an issue that freezes the screen during incoming calls.
Some force close bugs that appeared while unlocking the device or when the user tried to change the device screen lock method from settings have also been fixed.
Finally, as the title suggests, the small update adds the bokeh camera effect when using Live Focus, so be sure to check it out after downloading the new firmware version (NMF26X.N950USQU3BRA5) .
Samsung Galaxy Note 8 owners can download the update over Wi-Fi or using Verizon’s network. Make sure, however, that your battery is fully charged before starting the update.
