Having detailed it earlier this week, Samsung has now started rolling out the April 2018 security patch. The company has developed a habit recently to kick off the launch of a new security patch with low-end and mid-range devices and it’s sticking to the script this month as well. The Galaxy J1 mini prime is a low-end device that has only been released in a handful of markets and it’s now the first device that’s officially receiving the April patch.

We say that it’s officially the first device to get the April 2018 security patch because Samsung actually released the latest security update for one device even before Google made the details of this patch public. It released the April 2018 security patch for the Galaxy J3 (2017) in the Netherlands and Luxembourg last week.

The security patch for the month of April 2018 fixes seven critical vulnerabilities that were discovered in the Android operating system alongside fixes for dozens of high and moderate-risk vulnerabilities. The latest patch also has fixes for eight vulnerabilities that are exclusive to Samsung’s software.

The company is now rolling out firmware version J106FJVU0ARC4 for the Galaxy J1 mini prime in Russia. The firmware update is rolling out over-the-air so users in the country should expect to get it soon. It’s also available for download from our firmware section.

As previously mentioned, Samsung has yet again released the latest security patch for a low-end device first. This makes it highly likely that the next device to get the April 2018 security patch will be one from Samsung’s mid-range Galaxy A lineup.

Some devices that are still being supported by Samsung haven’t received the March patch as yet. They will most likely skip straight to the April patch as this is something that we have seen happen many times before. Don’t fret if you didn’t get last month’s patch, you will most likely get the one for April in the coming weeks.
