Canadian Galaxy S6, S6 edge, and S6 edge+ get November security update


Last updated: November 20th, 2017 at 12:47 UTC+02:00

It’s raining November security patches for all but the latest Samsung flagships, with the latest devices to get the newest security update being the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge, and Galaxy S6 edge+ in Canada. The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge started receiving the November update almost a week ago, and it is now being rolled out by Canadian carriers including Bell, Telus, SaskTel, and Virgin Mobile to all three Galaxy S6 flagships. For the Galaxy S6 edge+, this is the first update with the November patch, but it should reach other markets in the coming days.

Galaxy S6, S6 edge, and S6 edge+ November security update available in Canada

The firmware files for the update are available for download from our firmware database (here for the Galaxy S6, here for the S6 edge, and here for the S6 edge+). As usual, you can download the update over the air from the Settings » Software update menu as well. Don’t expect to see any new features or changes other than the November security patch, which fixes 61 Android vulnerabilities, six Samsung ones, and the KRACK Wi-Fi exploit that has affected almost every Wi-Fi-enabled device out there. After updating, your Galaxy S6 or S6 edge will be on build number G920W8VLS5DQK1 while the Galaxy S6 edge+ will go up to G928W8VLS4CQK1.
