Galaxy Note 8 January 2018 security patch update rolling out


Last updated: January 29th, 2018 at 13:15 UTC+02:00

The Galaxy Note 8, despite being the latest and greatest Samsung has to offer, doesn’t receive the latest updates as quickly as one would expect. Even the January 2018 security patch has made its way to budget phones and older flagships before the Note 8, but thankfully, Samsung isn’t making Note 8 owners wait too long this time around. An update that bundles the latest security patch is now rolling out to the Note 8 in France.

At 707 MB, one would expect the update to pack more than just security fixes, but that doesn’t seem to be the case according to the official changelog. As for the January patch, it fixes six critical Android vulnerabilities and 13 exploits in Samsung’s software, along with various other minor exploits, details of which can be found at Samsung’s official website for security patch information. As with previous patches, many vulnerabilities remain undisclosed so that devices are protected in the time the update takes to reach all users.

How soon the Note 8 update will make its way to other regions remains to be seen, but if you have a Galaxy Note 8 in France, you can download the update in the Settings » Software update menu. Or you could just wait for it to pop up as a notification in the coming days, although that can take a while.
