Samsung distributes January security patch for the Galaxy Grand Neo and Galaxy J2 Prime


Last updated: February 17th, 2017 at 10:31 UTC+01:00

Samsung is in the midst of distributing this month’s security patch for the factory unlocked variant of the Galaxy Grand Neo and Galaxy J2 Prime, reveals GSMArena. For those unaware, the upgrade addresses a total of 67 Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) in the Android OS and bundles an additional 28 fixes for the firm’s latest smartphones.

As you’d expect, the update is being pushed out in stages — so it may take a while to receive a push notification prompting you to download and install the OTA. If you’re feeling impatient and would like to manually scan for it, simply open up the Settings menu on your device and select the relevant option from the Software Update section under the About Device subheading.
