Verizon which is one of the largest carriers in the US has released a new update to the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ from Samsung which were released earlier this year. Talking about the handsets, the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ are the latest flagship smartphones from Samsung and the smartphones have been launched as the successors to the last year’s successful Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. Talking about the flagship phones from Samsung, the handsets were released by Samsung in all the markets around the world as well as on all the major carriers in the US including the Verizon network.
Now, the carrier is releasing a new update to the Galaxy S8 and S8+ devices which are operating on its network. As far as the update is concerned, the build number of the Galaxy S8 is G950USQU1AQG4 whereas the Galaxy S8+ gets the update with the build number G955USQU1AQG4. As far as the update’s changes are concerned, the major inclusion in the update is that the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ will now support Daydream VR headsets. The Daydream VR headsets were released by Google last year and the headsets supported very few devices at launch and the headsets have been gaining support for other devices now.
Talking about the rollout of the update, the carrier has already released the OTA updates with the above-mentioned build numbers and the updates should be available on your device very soon. However, do note that the rollout of the OTA update has to be done in patches so it may take time for your device to receive the update now but the update should definitely be coming to your device in the coming days. Make sure to download and install the update to get Daydream VR headset support if you own one.
