[Update: Galaxy J5 Prime too] Latest Galaxy J7 Prime update brings February security patch

Firmware
By 

Last updated: February 9th, 2017 at 10:40 UTC+01:00

Samsung is now rolling out a new firmware update for the Galaxy J7 Prime. The update brings the February 2017 security patch for this handset. It’s great timing when you consider the fact that the company officially detailed this security patch just yesterday. The new update is live now and rolling out for the Galaxy J7 Prime in India.

Galaxy J7 Prime owners will soon receive an OTA update notification informing them that firmware version G610FDDU1AQA2 is now available for their handset. It’s a minor update because it doesn’t include any new features or improvements. All it does is bump up the security patch version to the latest one.

This update is rolling out across India right now and should be live for all users in the near future. Those who can’t wait for it to arrive over-the-air can manually flash it on their handsets by downloading the update file. The latest Galaxy J7 Prime update is now available for download via our firmware section.

Update: The February security patch has also been released for the Galaxy J5 Prime via firmware version G570MUBU1AQA3.
