Samsung starts distributing the August security patch for the Galaxy S6 edge+ in Europe

Following a successful rollout of the August security patch for the Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 edge and Galaxy Note 4, Samsung has today started rolling out an identical update for all unlocked models of the Galaxy S6 edge+ in Europe. The upgrade, which carries the firmware version XXS2BPH1, has been specifically designed to fix an issue that results in malware being installed on a handset if the SideSync application is activated before completing the Setup Wizard.

If you own an unlocked model of the Galaxy S6 edge+, reside in Europe and would like to see if the upgrade is ready for your device, simply head into Settings, followed by About Device, locate and select Software Update, then hit the Download Updates Manually button. Alternatively, you can wait until you receive a push notification prompting you to install the update from Samsung’s servers. However, you will need to have at least 50% of battery or be connected to an outlet to receive the alert.
