Last updated: May 12th, 2021 at 05:45 UTC+02:00

Samsung is crushing it right now in terms of software updates. Three weeks ago, the company started releasing the May 2021 security patch to its high-end and mid-range Galaxy devices. Now, the company has diverted its attention to smartphones that were launched three or four years ago.

The Galaxy J5 Pro (a.k.a Galaxy J5 2017) is now receiving a new software update bearing firmware version J530LKLU7CUD2. The new update, which has been released in South Korea, includes the April 2021 security patch. This update includes fixes for various critical privacy and security related issues. As per official documentation, the April 2021 update includes 23 fixes from Google and 30 fixes from Samsung.

If you are a Galaxy J5 Pro user in South Korea, you might have received a new software update notification. If not, you can manually check for the update on your smartphone by navigating to Settings » Software update and tapping on Download and install. If you are an advanced user, you can download the latest firmware file for the Galaxy J5 Pro from our firmware database and flash it manually.

Samsung had launched the Galaxy J5 Pro in mid-2017 with Android 7.0 on board. It received the Android 8.0 update in Q3 of 2018 and the Android 9 update in Q3 of 2018. Right now, the smartphone is listed under the biannual update schedule on Samsung’s website, but it could soon stop receiving software updates.
