Google’s monthly Android security have always been something a large number of Android users look forward to every month. Usually, this update begins rolling out around the 5th or 6th of every month and comes to the Pixel and Nexus devices. However at times other brands too get to update their phones before these Google made devices. The ZTE Blade V8 Pro has become the first phone to get the October 2017 Android Security Patch.

This October 2017 Android Security Patch is dated 1st October 2017. The patch comes out at a size of 91 MB and brings in a number of fixes from Google as well as ZTE specific fixes. The October 2017 Android Security Patch for ZTE Blade V8 Pro brings one of the most awaited fixes to the phone – that of the BlueBorne vulnerability.

The BlueBorne vulnerability allowed hackers to gain access to a user’s device by as much as coming near the Bluetooth range of a user without even pairing the phone. This is perhaps the first time that a ZTE smartphone is getting an Android Security Patch before any other device, even Google Pixel and Nexus devices.

ZTE is really stepping up their game this year and are trying hard to set a global footprint. The company has been coming out with a number of new features and improvements. The ZTE Blade V8 Pro is also expected to be among the first ZTE smartphones to get the Android 8.0 Oreo OS update.

With the October 2017 Android Security Patch for the ZTE Blade V8 Pro, the company has shown that they too are capable of going toe to toe with the best brands in the world of smartphone industry such as Google, Samsung and other major players on the top of the table.
