New Galaxy Note 8 update includes the December security patch

It looks like the Galaxy Note 8 is on track for timely updates after a few months of neglect, at least in France. The unbranded Galaxy Note 8 received an update in the country yesterday, bringing some of the missing features that we saw in the November update for Taiwan and some carrier-locked versions in the US. These features, including the Secure Wi-Fi VPN functionality and tweaks to the camera’s Live Focus feature, weren’t made available for most regions.

December security patch now on a Samsung flagship

It looks like Samsung could be pushing a new update to make up for excluding those features in the previous update and has decided to include the December 2017 security patch. Of course, there’s no telling the same update that is rolling out in France would be made available in other markets. We certainly wish it does, however, so the Galaxy Note 8 doesn’t keep lagging in terms of security updates. Also, while we’re not sure if the Live Focus tweaks are included, but they should be considering the size of the update is similar to the one that rolled out in Taiwan.

Have you received the update on your Galaxy Note 8 in France? Seeing the same update in another country? Do let us know by leaving a comment.
