Galaxy Note 5 gets update with December security patch

Samsung has started rolling out an update to the Galaxy Note 5 that brings Android’s December security patch to the company’s elusive fifth-generation Galaxy Note flagship. This is the same update that came to the Galaxy S6 family earlier this week; for the first time, we’re seeing a software update that hasn’t rolled out to both the Galaxy Note 5 and S6 edge+ at the same time.

Samsung has already detailed what the December version of the security patch entails, and the changelog also mentions improved voice call quality. It’s the same changelog as the previous update, which means enhanced security is the major draw. The latter is expected to be the main feature of most updates in the future as well, thanks to the new policy manufacturers are following to keep their devices up-to-date following the Stagefright scare that marred Android’s name recently.

For now, the update is rolling out in India, with firmware version N920GDDU2AOL1 and a download size of 71.15 MB. Expect it in all the regions where the Note 5 is available over the next few days, and if you haven’t received a notification for the update yet, hop into the Settings » About device » Software update menu to make it show up. The full firmware is available from our firmware section for a manual upgrade, and connecting your phone to a PC and firing up Smart Switch is another way of getting the new update.

Build date Thu, 17 Dec 2015 07:22:32 +0000

If you want faster software updates + long time updation of device then never buy samsung ( even flagships ) just buy android one ( available in some regions ) or nexus phones … in past samsung phones were famous for excellent hardware and software features … but nowadays other companies providing almost all of them in half or less price…
At last if you want all features 99.99% – then samsung
If you are satisfied by almost all features means 50-99% – then buy others
The main problem is samsung is focusing on hardware rather then software optimisation … but the software features like multi window, one handed operation etc no other phones have !
The other problem is google is taking away the exclusive features of sammy so its bad for sammy users … i hope you can get my words …
At last again the question is what you need the most – faster updates, best hardware, cheap smartphone … so we can not take decisions for other people as diff. People will have diff. Needs…
But who buy the note 4 note 5 or s6 for just only show off 1st … after some month he realize updates not coming … but if you wanted the updates then why did u choose it ! Some people like my neighbour or relative bought it…my classmates have ut..so i must buy it even if i do not need it…just for status..!
There are many crapple available for show off status of your money..buy it if u want 2 show off only of ur status..
But buying phone with great purposes + usability and choosing the right phone is an art … we cant say anything to sammy as we choosed sammy…and i m sure that the company who neglect customer will get diminished but samsung is doing it in lower percentage as of now…lets see what the features of s7 or note 6 will have that make unique them from any other smartphone in global market…

Since when did people start to get hungry over updates? I remember the days where you’ll just buy a phone and use it til end of its life without even worrying about updates. Now some people won’t get an update in 2 or 3 months and it looks like it’s gonna be the end of the world already.

Why doesn’t other versions of flagship get security updates? 928C S6 Edge Plus still in November build WITH LOCKSCREEN FREEZE BUG EXISTS, N920C Note 5 still a month behind. Don’t they need updates?

@HARINSHETH – That’s a bogus statement. They only mentioned Marsmallow update, where did you find “all security updates” in LG devices?

December update should be in december. January update should be in january. Common sense, it’s called logical thinking.

December patch made in december…but OTA will come after approvation by google…and for note 4 google is not approving any update as i think..or samsung stopped making updates for it !

My father’s Galaxy E7 also got the December security patch. E7 already got the 5.1.1. But wife’s A5 didn’t get neither the 5.1.1 nor the security patch.

As if Android 6.0 is cure for Ebola.

No but it’s a good cure for battery life. Doze works very good. The standby drain in Lollipop is too damn high.
