After rolling out its January security patch to more of their recent phones, Samsung has now released the same for their good old Galaxy S6. What we don't understand is it took a while week for the company to release it after they rolled out the same security patch for the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus that was released along with the S6.
Getting its January security patch in the month of February sounds kind of funny but with the version number XXU5DQAG update for the S6 Samsung has proved its commitment to the 2015 flagship device. It's also the third consecutive update after the S6 got the November security patches on time.
Fixing Atkins 28 issues in Samsung's own firmware and another 67 among the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) under the Android Interface, the security patch has only been rolled out to the unlocked variants of the device. Users who have their device locked to a carrier might still have to wait longer.
Recently it was also announced that the Galaxy S6 would also be getting the Android 7.1.1 Nougat based LineageOS ROM and it's a rejoicing moment for the users of the device who might have thought the development for their phone might have been done for.
