Galaxy J5 (2016) update brings October security patch

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.

And I can’t understand why the Galaxy Note 4 already got Marshmallow and Galaxy Alpha still haven’t. Both devices are quite similar…

My sister has the Alpha and I told her last year she’d get 5.1.1. Now I’m telling her she’s gonna get it before or at the beginning of the new year. She’s not happy… I don’t even know if it will get 6.0.1, but I really hope so.

I do not understand why last year’s flagship devices are not priority anymore, my S6 edge+ is still on September and honestly only recently did receive the September patch.

Don’t worry. The October patch is already rolling out for S6’s. We just need patients because you know Samsung is slow with rolling out updates.
