Samsung has started to work closely with all the networks around the world to give the Android updates as well as security updates to their phones as quickly as possible. This is due to the fact that Samsung phones have always been criticized for not providing Android updates at all and if it comes, it is too late. Now, in a turn of events, the Samsung phones have been receiving regular updates from the company. Samsung is also pushing the network operators in U.S to provide Android updates and AT&T has already sent out updates to four Samsung phones at a time.
Samsung phones receiving the update are the Samsung Galaxy S6, S6 Edge, Galaxy S6 Edge+ and Note 5. All the phones are receiving the latest updates which will install the May security patches to their phones. The US-based carrier is rolling out the update Over the Air as software versions N920AUCS4EQE1, G928AUCS4EQE1, G925AUCS4EQE1 and G920AUCS4EQE1 for the Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6 Edge+, Galaxy S6 Edge and Galaxy S6, respectively.
The QE1 build applies the May security patch to the above mentioned devices and it seems to have just made it in time as the month end is already drawing to a close. The Nougat based updates also include the customary performance improvements which ensure that your device functions smoothly. The update also brings bug fixes and system stability improvements. The security patch on the other hand, protects your device and the user’s data from viruses threats and hackers. The updates are sized between 15MB to 50MB. Also, before you install the update, ensure that your device has at least 50% charge.
If you are not patient enough and you want the update on your phone as quickly as possible, go ahead and check for the update manually from Settings » Software update » Download updates manually.
