Galaxy J6 Plus and Galaxy J4 get December 2018 security patch

Samsung is rolling out firmware version J610FXXU1ARL1 for the Galaxy J6+in Nepal and Sri Lanka. It is an Android 8.1 Oreo based update and bumps only the monthly security patch on the device. The update is being rolled out over the air and may take some time to reach your region and device. However, if you don’t want to wait for the OTA firmware, you can download it from our database as well.

For the Galaxy J4, Samsung is rolling out firmware version J400FPUU2ARK6 in Russia which brings the December 2018 security patch. Users will get a notification when it’s available for their device. You can also manually check for updates by clicking the Download updates manually option under Software Update in the Settings app. Alternatively, you can also download the latest firmware from our database.

The December 2018 security patch is an important one as it fixes a vulnerability which allowed unauthenticated access to the Secure Folder app and the Gallery app. More Galaxy devices should get the update in the coming days.
