Samsung Galaxy S8 officially retired

The first time it launched four years ago, today Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ are officially retired because they have received their last security update. Samsung Galaxy S8 is a success story for Samsung, launching in the spring of 2017 with a bold design that drew attention from battery problems with Galaxy Note 7.


The S8 series marked a design shift for Galaxy devices, with a wider-aspect edge-to-edge screen with minimal bezels that made it one of the best-looking phones on the market. It offered excellent hardware and a great camera, combined with a remarkably restrained software implementation. Best of all, the batteries did not catch fire.

While the S8 and S8 Plus have reached the end of that support period, the S8 Active is still on the schedule for quarterly updates and the S8 Lite is on the biannual schedule.
