Is Samsung making up for the delays its devices have seen with security updates in recent months? It sure looks like it. The mid-range Galaxy A5 (2016) was the first to receive the December security patch, the Galaxy Note 8 has been updated with the latest security fixes in at least one market, and so have the budget A3 (2017) and J3 (2017). Now, we’re seeing the Galaxy S6 also receiving an update with the December patch in India, Bangladesh, and Nepal. Of course, the delays could have been because of the major vulnerabilities that were discovered on Android in recent months, and we could be seeing things getting back to normal from December as long as another widespread vulnerability doesn’t rear its head.

December security patch arrives on the Galaxy S6

We were informed of the same by one of our readers yesterday, and the firmware for all the aforementioned markets is now available in our firmware database as well. If you own a Galaxy S6, you should be able to grab the update over the air by going into the settings menu, tapping Software update, followed by Download updates manually. We don’t know if the Galaxy S6 edge is getting the same update in these countries yet, but going by how things usually work, the December security patch for the curved S6 variant shouldn’t be too far behind. The update is also available for the Galaxy S6 edge.

See the new update on your Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge, or another device? Let us know in the comments if you do!
