Chinese smartphone manufacturer Huawei has been making good on its promise to distribute Google’s monthly security updates for its flagship smartphones, and today has started rolling out February’s patches for the Mate 8. This upgrade’s objective is to fix a multitude of “critical bugs” present in the open-source operating system, which, if not dealt with, could have permitted devices to be remotely accessed by a simple text message. It also addresses users concerns regarding privilege escalation as it plasters over any previous holes exposing the resources that had the facility to brick a handset if tampered with.
As usual, the update is being distributed in stages. All unlocked Mate 8 units should receive the update within the next few days, whilst carrier-branded variants are expected to get it sometime next week — so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for that push notification prompting you to download and install the update. It’s worth noting, however, as this is a relatively large piece of firmware, you’ll probably want to connect to a Wi-Fi network prior to pulling it from the servers in order to ensure you don’t run over your data allotment and rack up a nasty bill with your service provider.
