    Unlocked Galaxy Note 8 updated with November security patch in the US

    The unlocked Galaxy Note 8 is now receiving an update with the November 2019 security patch in the US, a week after the November update was released for the unlocked Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ in the country and two weeks after it hit the global Exynos-powered Galaxy Note 8. The new update includes only the latest security fixes and comes with software version N950U1UES7DSK1. 

    Some carriers are also likely to release the November update for the Galaxy Note 8 in the next couple of days, considering how important the update is. It fixes a vulnerability in the Android OS that allows malicious apps to access a device's camera without the user's consent and access their photos and videos. There have been no reports of this vulnerability being actively exploited, and now that it has been fixed, it should no longer be a concern. The November patch also fixes a slew of other vulnerabilities, which you can read about here.

    For getting the update over the air directly on your phone, you can tap the download option in the Software update menu of the Settings app. You may have to do this a few times before the update shows up. If it doesn't, you can upgrade your Note 8 by downloading the latest firmware from our firmware section and manually flashing it on the phone.
