[Update: Also the S6 edge] Galaxy S6 November update rolling out now

Home / News / [Update: Also the S6 edge] Galaxy S6 November update rolling out now

Samsung detailed the November 2017 security patch last week and has since been rolling it out. The patch has been released for the Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A7 (2017). It has also landed on the Galaxy J1 (2016). It’s now being rolled out for the Galaxy S6.

Since it’s a minor security update that only brings security fixes, Galaxy S6 users shouldn’t expect much in the way of new features or tweaks. The November update does fix a crucial Wi-Fi vulnerability, though.

Galaxy S6 November update

The November 2017 security patch fixes the Krack Wi-Fi vulnerability. It’s a security flaw in the WPA Wi-Fi security protocol so any device that supports Wi-Fi is likely affected by it.

Attackers can use the vulnerability to eavesdrop on traffic between access points and connected devices. There haven’t been any reports of widespread exploitation of this vulnerability so at least people can find some solace in that.

Firmware version G920FXXU5EQK4 is now being rolled out for the Galaxy S6 SM-G920F. It’s out now for the SFR-branded version of the handset in France. The update file is available for download from our firmware section.

It’s only a matter of time before the Galaxy S6 November update is released in other markets.

Update: The Galaxy S6 edge is also receiving the same update in France. The firmware is available from our firmware section.

Samsung better come up with a killer update for S8/S8+ users for having us hanging with August’s security patch. Next update should at least grant my S8 the ability to make me a nice espresso coffee in the morning after my work alarm goes off.

EDIT: For those who’re interested, I’m a S8 (SM-G950F) user and just received a 3330MB update via Smart Switch. It didn’t specify what the update brought. As soon as it is finished installing I will update back.

It is nice to see, that Samsung supports older phones with security updates (J1 2016, S6) and middle series like A5 2017 and A7 2017, but WTF where is the support for the highend Galaxy Note 8 950F??? We are still on August security update! It would be nice, if editor from sammobile could write an article (maybe in cooperation with Samsung?) how is the update policy in Samsung. It does not make sense for me…

You will get it… someday. If you want a decent support policy, buy something else. Samsung’s has been the same for years, and it’s not getting any better, despite rising prices.
