Galaxy Note 8 January 2018 security patch update rolling out

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.

Galaxy Note 8 January 2018 security patch

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.

Have you received the new update on your Galaxy Note 8?

I like Samsung and I love my Note4 but if Samsung wasn’t a greedy company but a trustworthy consumer-conscious-caring one, they’d go out of their way, the extra mile to put all resources into drive to make sure the Note8 launched with Oreo from day 1 to match both model and software numbers to prove to loyal fans that they care.

What a wonderful, pleasing sight that would be to everyone that maybe even iPhone users would actually be un-brainwashed from buying junk again.

My South African variant also got it.

If they are pushing such an update now, seems unlikely we will be getting Oreo before end of the month.

Oreo for the Note 8 probably isn’t gonna come for a couple of weeks after the S8 gets it anyway.

Lol! I remember I started buying unlocked models because they were getting the updates months ahead of carriers. and as soon as I do; carriers start pushing updates first and unlocked phones are left behind. Never been so brassed off!

Why they don’t provide version number in changelog like in the past ?

Possibly because they now have a dedicated page for the update details here: doc.samsungmobile.com/SM-N950F/INS/doc.html
