Galaxy J5 (2016) update brings October security patch

Firmware
By 

Last updated: October 26th, 2016 at 11:27 UTC+01:00

Samsung has started rolling out a minor update for the Galaxy J5 (2016) in Europe. The handset already runs on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow so it’s not like the update will bring any major changes to the Galaxy J5 (2016). What it does bring is the October security patch which contains patches for 68 crucial bugs identified by Google and 7 patches for vulnerabilities identified by Samsung.

Software version MMB29M.J510FNXXU1APJ3 is now being rolled out for the Galaxy J5 (2016) model number SM-J510FN in the Netherlands. It’s only a matter of time before this update is also rolled out to other countries across Europe. Samsung is rolling out this update over-the-air in the country so it might take some time to go live for everybody. Users can head over to Settings > About Device > Software Update > Update Now to check if the update is available for their handset. Those who are okay with manually flashing firmware on their handsets can also download this update from our firmware section.
