First security update now arriving on the Galaxy A3 (2017)

Home / News / First security update now arriving on the Galaxy A3 (2017)

The Galaxy A3 (2017) is receiving its first security maintenance update in Europe. From what we can tell, the upgrade bundles all of the changes included in May’s release — 54 patches provided by Google and 11 from Samsung — alongside a number of other performance and stability enhancements.

It’s a little disappointing that Samsung wasn’t able to roll out this month’s maintenance update for the Galaxy A3 (2017), but we aren’t going to complain as it’s still nice to see the firm rolling out somewhat timely quarterly upgrades for its mid-range devices, even if they aren’t the latest patches.

You can check to see if the OTA is available for your handset by navigating into Settings, hitting Software Update, then tapping Download Updates Manually. If it’s ready, you’ll be prompted to download and install it, but if it isn’t, don’t panic. You’ll receive a push notification when it reaches your unit.

Normal her incompetence with Google’s security patches.
Only the Galaxy A5 series has a decent treatment on its part.
An example: Galaxy Grand Prime VE with TV (SM-G531BT) received the April patch in Brazil, while the model without TV (SM-G531H) continues with the January patch in the same country. Even the Galaxy Grand Prime (SM-G530H) in Panama has the latest patch (February 2017) as its successor in Brazil.

J5 (2015) (J500F) could receive Nougat in the first week of november but this smartphone is mysteriously appearing and disappearing from the list of devices that will be updated so I think the upadate is unlikely.
