The October 2019 security patch is now rolling out for the Galaxy A30 and Galaxy J2 Core, specifically the model numbers SM-A305GT and SM-J260G, respectively. Google has yet to detail the changes brought forth by the latest Android security patch and it’s unclear if Samsung introduced any new features along with the latest software release.

What’s interesting about this launch is that the Galaxy A30 also received the September 2019 security patch, even though the device is on to the quarterly security update schedule – same as the Galaxy J2 Core.

October 2019 security patch out for the Galaxy A30 and J2 Core

Case in point, the Galaxy A50 also received the October 2019 security update this week, but it previously skipped the September release. It’s not uncommon, though, perhaps an important fix needed to be sent out for the device. We will know for certain once the patch gets detailed in a couple of days.

At the time of writing, the October 2019 security patch is available for the Galaxy A30 in Brazil and Peru, and for the Galaxy J2 Core in Nepal. As usual, availability will gradually expand and reach more model numbers over the next few days and weeks. If the software package is already available in your region, you can download it over the air by tapping the notification on your phone. You can also check our firmware pages for the SM-A305GT and SM-J260G, and install it manually.
