Samsung is now shipping the September 2018 Android security patch for the Galaxy A8+, Galaxy A8 2016, and Galaxy C7 smartphones. The company had recently rolled out the same security patch for the high-end Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus as well.

The latest security patch update for Samsung Galaxy A8+ bumps software version to A730FXXU3BRI1 while the Galaxy A8 2016 is getting the version A810FXXU2CRH7 update, reports TheAndroidSoul. The update has also been shipped to one of the C series device as well. The Samsung Galaxy C7’s September 2018 security update comes with software version C7000ZCU3CRI1.

Reportedly, the updates rolling out to Galaxy A8+ and Galaxy C7 are based on Android 8.0 Oreo, while the Galaxy A8 2016 is still on Android 7.0 Nougat, except the Korean variant SM-A810S, which has already received Android 8.0 Oreo. The rollout has just begun and it is expected to ship OTA updates to all three devices over a week’s time.

Samsung released September security patch for both the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ this week, and the Note 8 update had come last week. Along with security update, it also brought support for AR Emoji and super slow-motion video recording option. Also, the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ update was also made available to the carrier locked variants in the U.S.

As for the latest Android 9 Pie update, Samsung hasn’t made its plans official as yet. The company has been really slow in updating its smartphones to Android Oreo. Some of the Samsung smartphones have recently started getting Android 8.1 Oreo, which is quite late by any standards.
