Galaxy S5 February security patch being rolled out in Europe

Firmware

Last updated: March 2nd, 2017 at 13:55 UTC+02:00

Galaxy S5 owners in Europe should keep an eye out for a new firmware update today. Samsung is now rolling out the February security update for this handset across the continent. It’s a minor update which doesn’t bring much in the way of new features but at least it’s going to patch up the dozens of vulnerabilities that Google found in Android OS and some that Samsung found in its software.

Firmware version G900FXXS1CQB5 is now being rolled out for the Galaxy S5 which is almost three years old now. It’s safe to say that this handset won’t be receiving any major Android updates so it will stick with Android 6.0.1. If you own one and would like a taste of Nougat, you’re better off spending some money on a newer model.

Samsung has started rolling out this update over-the-air so it’s going to take a couple of days before it goes live for everybody. Those who are up for manually flashing it can find the file in our firmware section.
