Samsung begins pushing out August security patch to Galaxy Note 8

Samsung begins pushing out August security patch to Galaxy Note 8
On the third day of August, Samsung began pushing out the newest Android security patch to both the Galaxy S8 and S8+. This was a pretty impressive move by the company considering Google had yet to reveal what the patch even contained at that point. And, demonstrating its ability once again to update smartphones in a timely manner when it wishes to, the August 2018 security patch is now also rolling out to the Galaxy Note 8.

In actual fact, Samsung began pushing out the August security patch to the Galaxy Note 8 last week. However, due to multiple bugs that were seemingly present in the software, the South Korean giant has opted to release yet another update that presumably fixes any previous flaws. In terms of the changelog, it simply lists security improvements. However, modifications to the performance of the smartphone are often bundled in too in the hope of bettering the overall software experience, while the previous release also included improvements to Samsung's Game Launcher app.

Currently, the latest software version appears to have been released in the United Arab Emirates, although other markets should begin receiving the security patch in the near future too. Additionally, it’s worth noting that the update is rolling out OTA so users should receive a notification when it’s available to download. However, those who want the software as soon as possible can manually check the availability in the Software Update menu that can be found within the Settings app.
