Earlier today, Samsung started rolling out an update with the January 2018 security patch to the Galaxy Note 8, but devices like the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S7 were updated with the latest security fixes ahead of the company’s latest flagship. Now, another old flagship is receiving the January 2018 security patch, and that’s the Galaxy S6 edge+, the 5.7-inch successor to the Galaxy S6 edge.

The update is rolling out to unlocked models in Mexico and should make its way to other regions soon. The build number carried by the update is G928GUBU4CRA1, and you can download the firmware from our database to flash manually using a PC or grab the update over the air from the Settings » Software update menu on your S6 edge+. As with all such security updates, don’t expect any new features or changes to how things work.
