Galaxy J5 (2017) now receiving BlueBorne security update in Europe


Last updated: October 27th, 2017 at 11:30 UTC+02:00

Samsung has started distributing a new update—J530FXXU1AQI3—for the Galaxy J5 (2017) in Europe, following a rollout of a near-identical upgrade for the Galaxy J7 (2017) last week. The release bundles all 40 patches included in August’s security release, in addition to some measures to protect the handset from the BlueBorne exploit.

There aren’t any new features to play around with

There isn’t a whole lot to say about the update, because let’s be honest: there aren’t any new features to play around with. To check to see if the upgrade is available for your Galaxy J5 (2017) navigate into Settings, tap About Device, then select Download Updates Manually. We’d recommend installing it over a Wi-Fi connection, though.
