Galaxy A5 (2017) receives January update in the Netherlands

Samsung has just released the January security update for the unbranded Galaxy A5 (2017) in the Netherlands. The company’s A series phones have been the first to receive the newest security patches for months in a row, but that streak has finally broken as the January patch debuted on the company’s budget devices. As expected, Samsung is yet to release the January patch for any of its flagship handsets.

Galaxy A5 (2017) security update

The December update we saw for this device was rather hefty. It bolstered a suite of new camera features for both 2017 Galaxy A devices including Selfie Focus, a single camera play on Samsung’s flagship feature Selective Focus, in addition to Snapchat-esque augmented reality stickers and stamps.

This update is rather miniscule weighing in at 22MB and updating the firmware to version A520FXXU4BRA8. The always improving security patch for this month includes 91 Google fixes for the Android OS itself, as well 13 fixes coming directly from Samsung for the Samsung Experience OS.

As previously stated the update is available for unbranded devices, meaning non-carrier branded models. If you’re currently rocking a Galaxy A5 (2017), you can check to see if the update is available for your phone by going into the Settings app, then tapping the Download updates manually option in the Software update menu. It’s going to be a while before it becomes available in all markets.
