i got the alert on my S8 unlocked (Verizon) this morning as well. Haven't had a chance to install yet - any big changes?

as a constant samsung pay user I'm guessing I shouldn't update?

I would hold off. It's been working fine and just yesterday I went to use it in a store and my fingerprints wouldn't work. I've contacted Samsung Pay and I'm hoping to hear back soon.

I've had to disable "Software Update" to prevent OS updates and make the phone stick on Android 7, so it's presumably not going to detect this nor download it.

Is there any way to install this directly without allowing the phone to update the operating system?

Thinking of, say, Windows where individual DLLs and components are updated: it doesn't reinstall the entire operating system just to patch one or two components.

I'm interested in this as well, if possible...
