October security patch now arriving on the Galaxy S6 in Europe

So there we have it, folks. Samsung has finally started rolling out October’s security patch for the unlocked variant of the Galaxy S6 in Europe. The rollout comes less than a week after the firmware started making the rounds for the Galaxy S6 edge and Galaxy S6 edge+ in the region.

The upgrade — firmware version XXU4DPJD — 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. It also bundles several miscellaneous stability improvements and speed optimizations.

As we’ve come to expect, this specific update is being pushed out in stages. If you own an unlocked model of the Galaxy S6 that was purchased in Europe and would like to see if the OTA is ready for your unit, head into Settings » About Device » Download Updates Manually. Alternatively, you can always wait until you receive a notification prompting you to upgrade.

It’s being installed.

I had checked a few hours ago, and it wasn’t yet there.

No October security patch for S7 series in Singapore yet so S6 series wait even longer.

It seems there is a huge difference between the patches that samsung says it sends and what we actually receive. My S7 edge unlocked is still on August patch despite the announces here past weeks.
