Did Samsung make a New Year’s resolution of bringing security updates to budget devices before mid-range and flagship ones in 2018? It would certainly seem so, as the January 2018 security patch is now making its way to the Galaxy J1 mini Prime (SM-J106B), a phone that sits at the very bottom of the price ladder in Samsung’s galactic smartphone lineup. Just a week ago, the latest security patch made its debut on the Galaxy Tab A (2016), another low-end Samsung device.

January 2018 security patch available for the Galaxy J1 mini Prime

The update that bundles the January 2018 security patch is rolling out for the J1 mini Prime in Trinidad and Tobago, with firmware version J106BUBU0ARA1. Security fixes are likely to be the only thing on offer, which isn’t a bad thing given how exploits targeting mobile devices are becoming extremely commonplace. The January 2018 patch fixes five critical Android vulnerabilities and 13 that affect Samsung’s version of the OS, details of which can be found at this link.

You can check if the update is available on your Galaxy J1 mini Prime from the Settings app; you can download the full firmware from our database should the update not yet be available over the air.
