Samsung is the first company to release the April security patch

It happens that the April security patch is now rolling out to a particular Samsung smartphone that's that's been released less than a year ago, the Galaxy J3 (2017). For whatever reasons, Samsung picked this entry-level smartphone to be the first device to receive the April security patch.
Unfortunately, we don't know yet what changes the security patch contains since there's no changelog. Every security patch released by Google each month comes with detailed changelog and the same goes for Samsung.
For the time being, the update is available in a couple of European countries like Luxembourg and the Netherlands, but it's likely to spread to other regions in the coming days.

remember... this doesnt matter because their phones aren't on 8.1 so this is garbage fragmentation!

Phonearena is wrong. Xiaomi is the first company to release april patch. Mi A1 got it few days back already.

It wouldn’t have mattered if the phones were on 8.1 but the security updates were outdated. Why does 8.1 matter anyways as they are not defended on vanilla android for functionalities and features. SE does that work.

My Singapore version Sony Xperia XZ Premium just received its March 2018 security patch. It's a huge jump from January 2018 patch to March 2018 patch. According to Xperiablog.net, Sony does provide monthly security update every month dated on 10th-15th , but I don't understand why my device receives the update every few months. I think my next update is on May or June, but I believe I can live without it
