Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ getting the October security patch in South Korea

Samsung’s focus on the Oreo beta may have delayed the rollout of the October security patch for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, so much so that it had us thinking Samsung will skip the update in many regions, especially those where the Oreo beta will go live. That doesn’t seem to be the case, however, and it looks like it was just a simple delay, as the update is now rolling out for the three major carriers in South Korea.

Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ October security patch now available in South Korea

These carriers include SK Telecom, Korea Telecom (KT), and LG Uplus, and we could see the October security patch hitting these flagships in other regions soon. Hopefully, the slow rollout of the October patch will not result in the November security update falling behind schedule, as it does fix a critical vulnerability that affects millions of Wi-Fi-enabled devices, both phones and otherwise. As for the October patch, it brings fixes for 215 exploits in Android and six found in Samsung’s software.

Have you gotten an update with the October security patch on your Galaxy S8 or S8+?
