    Earlier today, Samsung started rolling out an update with the January 2018 security patch to the Galaxy Note 8, but devices like the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S7 were updated with the latest security fixes ahead of the company's latest flagship. Now, another old flagship is receiving the January 2018 security patch, and that's the Galaxy S6 edge+, the 5.7-inch successor to the Galaxy S6 edge.
