Samsung Galaxy S6 getting an update with November security patch

Samsung is seeding a new software update for the Galaxy S6 smartphone which brings the latest Android security patch and other improvements to the phone.

The build number for the new update is G920FXXU5EQK4 and it is currently available as an over-the-air download. As is with OTA updates, you may have to wait a few days to receive the update, if you haven’t already. You can manually check for the update by heading to Settings > About > Software.

The update doesn’t bring any new features as such, but does install the November Android security patch. That’s pretty good, as only a couple of phones have got the latest patch from Google. Samsung recently released a similar update for the Galaxy A5(2017). The Galaxy S6 Active also received a security update earlier this week.

Apart from the November patch, you can also expect some bug fixes and improved system stability with the new update. The Galaxy S6 is currently running Android 7.0 Nougat, but will not receive an upgrade to Android Oreo. You may want to upgrade your smartphone to a newer device if you want to enjoy the goodness of Oreo.
