August security update now making the rounds for the Galaxy S5 Neo
Samsung has started rolling out a maintenance update for the Galaxy S5 Neo in Europe. The upgrade bundles all of the changes baked into last month’s Security Maintenance Release, which includes patches for twenty-eight Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures in the Android operating system and twelve in Samsung’s in-house firmware, as well as a number of much-needed bug fixes.
Unfortunately, there’s still no word on the long-awaited Android 7.0 Nougat update for the Galaxy S5 Neo in the continent. It’s already arrived on the factory unlocked variant of the handset in Canada, leading us to believe it’s on the way to Europe. We just don’t know when exactly it will arrive, but we’ve contacted Samsung in an attempt to find out.
To check to see if the upgrade—G903FXXS1BQH1—is available for your Galaxy S5 Neo, open up Settings, select About Device, then tap Download Updates Manually. If you don’t, however, feel like going down that route, you can always wait until you receive an alert instructing you install the OTA, but, as we’ve said in the past, it typically takes a little longer to reach your device.
