Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and Note Edge had been released by Samsung before three years but the devices have been the most successful among the Samsung Galaxy Note series of devices released from Samsung after the Note 5. The devices, although being from back in time have been keeping up pretty well for the lifetime of the devices and the company has seen many users of the device still using the smartphones. This is the reason Samsung has released the latest June security patch to the Galaxy Note 4 and the Note Edge. The June security patch is also the latest security patch released by Google and many of the devices are still not up to date with this version of the security patch so it is great to see three-year-old device from Samsung getting the update.
Samsung Galaxy Note 4 has the build number N910FXXS1DQE9, Samsung Galaxy Note Edge comes with build number N915FXXS1DQF1. They initially came with Android KitKat on board, however, later they were updated to Lollipop and then to Marshmallow. Sadly, they will remain on Marshmallow for their entire life, as they won’t get updated to Nougat. As is the case with any security patch, the update takes care of various security vulnerabilities and brings along fixes to existing bugs. You can also expect performance and stability improvements from the update.
Also, It is advisable to connect to a good Wi-Fi network before downloading the update and keep your handset charged as high as 50 percent while installing the update. If you haven’t received the update yet, you can check for it manually via the device settings. Go to Settings – About – Software updates. Also, we have already reported that the June security patch from Google has solved many of the security loopholes that were present in the previous version of Android so make sure to download the update as soon as it comes to your device.
