Galaxy A3 (2017) October 2018 security update is out


Last updated: October 29th, 2018 at 09:02 UTC+02:00

Samsung’s last compact mid-range Galaxy A smartphone is now getting an update with the latest Android security patch. The Galaxy A3 (2017) is being updated with the October 2018 security patch in Turkey, Morocco, and the UAE. The update comes with build number A320FXXS4CRJ1.

Galaxy A3 (2017) October security update released

The October 2018 security patch fixes a dozen critical Android OS vulnerabilities and 11 critical ones discovered in Samsung’s software. Does the update include anything other than the new security patch? We’re not sure, but it will hopefully fix any lingering issues users might have since the A3 (2017)’s Oreo update was released. Samsung has already patched the one major issue A3 (2017) owners had been facing after the Oreo update, which is random reboots.
