The Samsung Galaxy A8s was one of the good looking smartphones from Samsung, released back in December 2018. It’s also known as Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro (2019) in South Korea. It runs on Android 9.0 Pie over One UI out of the box. Now, if you’re one of the Samsung Galaxy A8s users then you should enjoy as the company has finally released the latest Android 10 stable update. That means Samsung Galaxy A8s One UI 2.0 (Android 10) update is now live.
Though the One UI 2.0 update for the Galaxy A8s is only available in China, the update will soon arrive on all the Galaxy A8s units in other regions as well. Samsung always pushes out firmware updates to its eligible devices in batches via OTA and it will take a few days or so. You will recommend you to keep checking the OTA update via Settings – About device – Software update – Update now. It brings a new build number G8870ZCU3CTB2 along with a bunch of One UI 2.0 and Android 10 features.
Now, talking about some of the native features of Android 10, users will get system-wide dark mode, navigation gestures, improved app icons, enhanced app permissions, improved location privacy, and more. However, the firmware update comes with an outdated December 2019 Android Security Patchset.
But it’s expected that other region users may get an updated security patch version later this month. It’s worth mentioning that the Galaxy A8s (SM-G8870) users can use Samsung firmware downloader tools like the Frija tool to easily download and install the latest firmware update.
There is no firmware download link available yet for the Galaxy A8s model. We may have to wait for it. Till then, keep visiting the blog.
