Samsung has won the race to become the first OEM to release the June 2016 Android Security Updates for one of its handsets, with an update for the Galaxy Note 5 appearing on one of our review devices in the last day or so. Samsung are doing a pretty good job with the monthly security updates, which Google initiated to mitigate against significant security exploits like Stagefright which caused a bit of a fright not all that long ago.
If you’ve got an unlocked Galaxy Note 5, we recommend checking for the update, as it should be available to you very soon. We’re expecting the updates on other recent Samsung devices too, including the Galaxy S7 range, and probably the Galaxy S6 range (though that may take a little longer).
This is great news for anyone who bought an unlocked device, now we wait for the carriers to test and approve the updates so watch this space.
If you’ve got an update on your device or have some other news don’t forget to tip us.
