Galaxy Note 8 November security update also rolling out in Europe

The newest update for the international Galaxy Note 8, which started rolling out earlier this week in Taiwan and the US, is now rolling out in a couple of countries in Europe as well. We have reports of the update being available in France for the unlocked variant and in Germany and Ireland for the Vodafone-branded Note 8, and we expect it to spread to a slew of other countries over the weekend.

Galaxy Note 8 November update out in Europe

Unfortunately, this is the same update as the one that rolled out in India earlier today, which means it doesn’t include the new Live Focus camera tweaks. Those seem to be reserved for the US variants and Taiwan for now. While the more feature-packed update could arrive in more countries, it looks like a lot of users are going to receive only the latest security patches. Whether the camera tweaks will arrive as part of a separate update or the one that includes the December security patch also remains to be seen.

If you have a Galaxy Note 8, you should see a notification for the update’s availability at some point in the next few days. Of course, you need not wait for that to happen and can manually pull the update from the Settings » Software update menu. Once you’ve updated, do let us know if you see any new features or changes that we may have missed.

Got tired of waiting for BTU update. Went back to O2U and it updated straight away to November patch. I always thought carriers updated after

Samsung still haven’t found a way to rollout update to includes security patches and software improvement or new features globally on the same day like Apple or Google so that everyone get the same version except for the local customzation, for a company that sold millions but when it come to software update, it is just behind others.

Strange… One from the UK saying they have it but another saying they don’t… I don’t have an update on my unlocked Note8 in the UK. :/

My handset was from three so is supposed to be unlocked but I flashed the BTU firmware last night as I was having problems with receiving all texts, so maybe its that ? eitherway it’s updated now with no problems and seems to be running the same as before, I’ve not noticed anything different
