The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 received the Pie update in certain regions last month and Samsung is also now sending the March security to those models. Note 9 users in certain markets are also getting the security patch, interestingly, even ahead of the new Galaxy S10 phones.

Samsung looks to be getting better with software updates over the past six months or so. The company has released the stable Pie update to most of its phones, and users of the Galaxy Note 8 across Europe received the OTA last month. The last-gen flagship is now also receiving the March security patch in those regions.

The security update is reportedly available in Taiwan, Romania, Switzerland, Bulgaria, and a host of other European countries with the software version N950FXXS5DSB4. As usual, European Samsung models get updates way before US models, so we don’t expect users of the Note 8 in the United States to get this update for a while yet, especially since they haven’t even received the stable Pie update.

Interestingly, the Note 8 is the first Samsung flagship to receive the March security update, even ahead of even the new S10 phones. The Note 9 is also receiving the update in a few regions. We expect the new S10 trio to follow suit soon.
