Galaxy S6 edge+ in Europe now receiving October security patch

Following its rollout for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge in Europe two weeks ago, Samsung is now in the midst of distributing this month’s security release for the Galaxy S6 edge+ in the region. The upgrade — firmware version XXU3BPJ3 — transports patches for a total of 68 Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) in the Android OS and 7 dedicated fixes for the firm’s latest smartphones.

As we’ve come to expect from all Security Maintenance Releases (SMR), the update is being pushed out in stages — so don’t worry if you haven’t received a notification just yet prompting you to install the release. That being said, if you own a Galaxy S6 edge+, reside in Europe and would like to see if the OTA is ready for your unit, head into Settings » About Device » Download Updates Manually.
