The Galaxy S8+ had started to receive the June Security Patch in Europe a few hours ago and now a new report has confirmed that the same update has also started to land on the Indian variant. It is just a maintenance update but it is quite a significant one for a number of reasons. Firstly, the monthly SMR for June actually addresses 96 vulnerabilities in the base Android OS; which is in itself quite a large hole to fill! Add to that the fact that it also carries a few of Samsung's own updates to the UI and it suddenly begins to seem like quite a significant update.
Apparently, the most prominent change which this update brings to the S8+ are new colors for the navigation bar background. Given all that it is carrying, the 453.72MB size is quite understandable. Did you start to receive the update in your location yet? If you did and you don't live in Europe or India, please let us know in the comments.
