Update: The Samsung Galaxy S6 edge has also started getting the October security patch. Arriving as firmware version G925FXXU5EQI8, the update is currently hitting units in the UK.
Original story follows:
Samsung has started pushing out a new update to the Galaxy Note8 smartphone. Currently 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.
Specifically, Chinese and Hong Kong variants (SM-N9508 and SM-N9500) of the phone are getting the update. There's currently no information on what other changes (if any) the update includes.
As is usually the case with OTA roll outs, it may take some time before the notification pops up on your device (if it hasn't already). For those outside of China and Hong Kong, it should be a matter of time before the update arrives in your region.
