Verizon’s now distributing the January security patch for the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge, Galaxy S6 edge+ and Galaxy Note 5


Last updated: February 2nd, 2017 at 11:48 UTC+01:00

Following its rollout for the Galaxy Note Edge, Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy S5 earlier this week, Verizon has today started pushing out this month’s security patch for its carrier-locked variants of the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge, Galaxy S6 edge+ and Galaxy Note 5 currently located in the United States.

The upgrade — which is arriving as software version G920VVRS4CQA3, G928VVRS3BQA1, G925VVRS4CQA3, and N920VVRS3BQA1, respectively — introduces fixes for 67 Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) in the Android operating system (OS), as well as 28 exclusive patches for Galaxy handsets.

As usual, the firmware is being distributed over-the-air (OTA), so it could take a little time to show up on your device. To see if it’s ready, head into Settings » About Device » Download Updates Manually. Alternatively, you can wait until the software package is available from our database for flashing.
