Galaxy S5 Plus update brings January security patch


Last updated: February 9th, 2017 at 09:51 UTC+01:00

Some of you might not be aware that Samsung launched another variant of the Galaxy S5 back in 2014. It launched the Galaxy S5 Plus in Europe a few months after the Galaxy S5 was released. Both handsets looked very similar to each other as far as the design was concerned as the real difference was underneath the hood. Instead of the Galaxy S5’s Snapdragon 801 processor, the Galaxy S5 Plus was touting the latest Snapdragon 805 processor with the same 2GB of RAM. It also had support for LTE-Advanced for download speeds as high as 300Mbps.

Samsung is now sending out a new update for the Galaxy S5 Plus in Europe which brings the January security patch for this device. Firmware version G901FXXS1CQA7 is now being rolled out for the Galaxy S5 Plus. The security patch contains fixes for 67 issues in Android OS and 28 issues exclusive to Samsung’s software. The update is rolling out over-the-air right now and it’s also available for download via our firmware section.
