More than half a month has passed since Google released the October security update for its devices. While the Samsung October security patch swiftly follows under usual circumstances, the updates have been delayed this time around.

While the flagship devices such as the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge would usually receive the security bump first, this time, the mid-rangers are the first in line. The Galaxy A8, Galaxy J7 Prime, and the Galaxy Core Prime are surprisingly the first devices to receive the Samsung October security patch.

You can find the build.prop files of all the three devices below, which highlight the security level is now updated to October 1. The updates seem to be incremental and if you haven’t received it on your Galaxy A8, J7 Prime, or Core Prime already, expect it in the upcoming days.
