Samsung continues with the wave of security updates in order to ensure the protection of their devices and their users. The monthly security patches from Google are a very good opportunity to cover all those vulnerabilities that can very seriously affect your device. We talked about the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 of course, the patch of the month of December. The update of this new security patch has already begun to deploy in different countries.

Not only does it include the December security patch, which fixes different vulnerabilities and protects against others. It also receives a new, more secure VPN function. As well as new settings in the Live Focus function. This function is what has translated into Spanish as Dynamic Focus. The one serves to create blur effects in the image. As expected, this update does not include Android 8.0 Oreo, although the update has already leaked, and can download unofficially.

The update is coming little by little to users in France. Most likely, in the coming days or weeks, the update will be available to all users. If you have activated the automatic update option, you only have to connect to a stable Wi-Fi network, and wait for the update to skip. Otherwise, you must go to Settings and System Update. There, check if there is any new update available for download. As always, remember to have a minimum of 50 percent battery. You can also leave it loading during the download and installation. On the other hand, have enough space in the internal storage to be able to apply the download. Although it is not a very large update, it is also advisable to make a backup copy. The device will need to restart and you may lose your data.

How to install Android 8.0 Oreo already on the Samsung Galaxy Note 8

It is a matter of patience, because it will come eventually, if you are impatient to be able to try the latest version of Android on your Samsung terminal. A user has hung up how to install a beta version of Android 8 Oreo on his Galaxy Note 8. It is an OTA (Over the Air). These are the fastest and easiest updates. They downloaded directly from a server via Wi-Fi. Of course, they require the download of specific software and some computer knowledge.

Two ways to download

The user recommends two ways to download, one from a link to Google Drive then from a second direct link. In order to do so, you must first have downloaded the BQK2 version of the ODIN software. Specially designed to perform these types of downloads. We recommend continuing with this operation only to users who are already familiar with these systems as a first-timer can be a big complication. The one who warns is not a traitor. Keep in mind that the version you download is not the official one confirmed by Samsung. Even so, users who have downloaded it have been able to confirm some of the new features that it introduces.
