One good thing is that the company also considered its two-year-old flagships from the S and the Note line are also getting. So, a tremendously wonderful job by Samsung right there. Along with standard�security issues, this will also fix the Blueborne vulnerability which has been a major deal for the last couple of months.

Like always if you haven’t received the notification yet, just go to Settings >About Phone > System software updates, to monitor their arrival manually. Also, you need to make sure that your device has 60% or more battery left, to successfully install this update, or else it will fail in the middle of the process. Other than that download it over WiFi rather than mobile data.
