    Yet another flagship Galaxy device is getting an update with the latest security patch in tow. The Galaxy Note Fan Edition has been updated in Malaysia with the August 2018 security patch. The update comes with build number N935FXXU3BRG4 and is the fourth such update for the device in Malaysia. It shows how Samsung hasn't taken the Galaxy Note FE lightly in terms of security updates. And as a device for fans, it makes sense for the company to be putting some work into keeping it up-to-date.

    Galaxy Note Fan Edition update

    We don't know if the new Galaxy Note FE update brings anything other the latest security fixes. With Samsung having released the August update for so many of its flagships so quickly, it's possible this update also introduces some changes to the Game Launcher app, which is also part of the update for the Galaxy S9, Galaxy Note 8, and the Galaxy S8. As for the security patch, it comes with fixes for four critical Android OS vulnerabilities and 11 vulnerabilities that only affect Samsung's software.

    To see if the update is available for you, go into the Software update menu in the Settings app on your phone and tap Download updates manually. Alternatively, you can update by using the latest firmware from our firmware database.
