June 2018 Security Patch For Galaxy A8

Samsung has started releasing the June 2018 Security Patch For Galaxy A8 with model number SM-A530F. However, this update is based on Android Nougat 7.1.1 and not on Android Oreo and comes with build number A530FXXS2ARF3 and A530FXXS2AREG.

Users will have to wait a bit more to get Android Oreo update on the Galaxy A8 2018.

Right now, the update is being rolled-out only in selected regions which include Pakistan, Khazakstan, Libya, UAE, Tunisia, Saudi Arabia, Morrocco and some other countries in the Middle East and Africa.

The update is rolling out via OTA and as usual, it’ll take time to reach your phone if you are in the selected region. There is no information about the global roll-out of this update, but we can expect it coming in few days.
