Galaxy J4 starts receiving July 2019 security patch

Samsung has started rolling out the July 2019 security patch to the Galaxy J4, making it the third device from its stable to receive the latest monthly update. The company kickstarted the July patch rollout a couple of days back, beginning with the Galaxy S8 and S8+.

The Galaxy J4 update is currently available only in India and bumps the software version to J400FODM4BSF3 when installed. The release doesn’t seem to bring any new features to the budget device from last year and includes just the security fixes detailed in Samsung’s July security bulletin. It contains Google’s patches for ten critical and over a dozen high-risk vulnerabilities in Android and fixes from Samsung for 13 vulnerabilities that are specific to its devices.

To check for the update, go to Settings, select Software Update, and tap on the Download updates manually option. Doing so should trigger the update if its available to your device in your region. Alternatively, you can also download the latest firmware for your device from our database and manually flash it.
