The owners of the Nokia 8 in Vietnam reported that the January security patch is available for their phone. The update is 87.4 MB large and just brings the security patch. I am not sure if the update is available globally, or it is released in phases, and that is where you can help the rest to save their nerves and screen. Do tell us if the update is available for your so the rest could know.
The update tracker is also updated with the Nokia 8 being added to the list.
