Korean tech giant Samsung announced its first smartphone powered by Android Go in the shape of Galaxy J2 Core, which was released about two months back with July 2018 security patch. In the latest development, Samsung is now rolling out October 2018 security patch to it. Samsung aims to release such security updates on a quarterly basis and considering that Galaxy J2 Core is considered to be an entry-level offering, this security update rollout schedule isn’t bad at all.
Galaxy J2 Core is available in India, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Malaysia, and Thailand, which would be receiving this update that weighs in at 170MB which is quite considerable for a security patch. The update would be received via OTA and you’d get a notification for it once it's there though you could always check out its availability manually by heading over to System >> Software update menu to see if it’s available yet or not.
