Samsung starts rolling out Oct Security patch to Galaxy Note 8

When it comes to Google's yearly Android updates, it is usually hard to predict how soon third-party phone makers will begin rolling it out for their respective flagships. I am using the Galaxy Note 8 Exynos variant in India and haven't received any notification update for the new security update.

Rollouts for new Android updates are typically staggered, as first the smartphone manufacturer needs to work on the OS and then, networks will often get their own input depending on the country.

Now rolling out to units in a couple of Asian markets, it's a security update that brings along Android fixes for the month of October. The October Security update was recently released for some Samsung handsets, including the widely popular Galaxy S8. These devices will be prioritised ahead of older ones, like the Galaxy S7.

Samsung Turkey has revealed on its official portal that the company has started working on the Android 8.0 Oreo update and that it's going to be released for the company's smartphones in the beginning of 2018.

You can manually check for the update by heading to Settings About Device Software Update, on your smartphone.
