    Recently my Samsung J2 Pro got the latest security patch. Now it is running the 1-Aug-2018 security patch on Kernel version 3.10.65-14587778. But after this security patch I noticed some additional software which were installed without my permission or without giving me a choice to reject the applications. These applications were
    1) UC Browser
    2) PhonePe
    3) PayTm
    4) some 4-5 Other mobile apps.

    So my question is that has anybody seen such type of behaviour recently on their Samsung mobile phones?

    Welcome to Android Central! There's no way that those particular apps would come with an official over-the-air Samsung system update. Was it pushed over-the-air, or did you download it yourself from the web and manually install it?

    Are you able to uninstall those apps?

    It was pushed over the air. I did not install any of these apps by going to Play Store and clicking on them. I was able to uninstall these apps.
