December security update T-Mobile Galaxy S8 Active & unlocked S8/S9/Note 8 up for grabs

Samsung adorns the pole position when it comes to global smartphone market share. Although the budget sensitive arena tells you a whole another story, the South Korean MNC has managed to climb the top of the ladder with their flagship offerings.

In the past, buyers used to care only about major operating system updates. But times have changed now. You can now see people coming out with their concerns on different social platforms and asking why the latest security patch hasn’t hit their devices.

As you might know, security updates safeguard your handset from periodically rising vulnerabilities. That brings us to a long list of devices Samsung rolled out December update for. The first in the list is T-Mobile Galaxy S8 Active.
