Apparently smartphone makers are planning to ship the Android 6.0 Marshmallow updates to their devices and these news are getting leaked. Yesterday we came across an alleged roadmap for Lenovo, and before that day HTC's plans also got out, and now according to a post by SamsungViet.vn, Samsung's plans are also leaked as well.


12 devices have been mentioned in that list and those are ones which will receive the update in Q1 2016, and with four more slated to receive the update in Q2 2016. We're not quite sure if this list is final and the devices mentioned in the list are the ones are the confirmed for now.



Anyway it lists devices like the Galaxy Note 5, Note Edge, Note 4, Note 4 Duos, S6 Edge+, S6 Edge, S6, S6 Duos, S5, S5 Neo, and the S5 LTE-A as being the handsets that will receive the update in Q1 2016. The Galaxy Alpha, Tab A, Tab S2 9.7, and the Tab S2 8.0 are supposed to receive the update in Q2 2016.


It's difficult to confirm the authenticity of the list but it does seem to be in accordance with another leaked plan from November. It is also in sync with an earlier report in August that said Samsung devices would get the update in 2016.

If you own a Galaxy Note Edge (unlocked) in Europe, the chances are that you will soon be notified about the much awaited Android M 6.0.1 update. According to Sam Mobile, the 1.4GB update will change your handset's firmware build number to N915FYXXU1DPE1, along with installing the SMR patches for May.


We also have good news for our readers in China because the Samsung Galaxy A9 just started receiving the upgrade to Marshmallow as well. The A9 is the first in Samsung's A-series to receive the update so far. After downloading and installing the file, you can check from settings to see the firmware version changed to A9000ZCU1BPE2 and the base Android version changed to 6.0.1 Marshmallow.


The Blackberry "Priv" may not have been a good name to be honest, but the manufacturer was certainly ahead of many greater and better names in the industry when it rolled out the Marshmallow update to the Priv before many. The latest update released is a humongous 1.8GB file that will upgrade the handset to Marshmallow beta. The STV100-1, STV100-3 and the STV100-4 models in the applicable geographical areas are eligible for the upgrade as of now.

HTC ONe mini

 

Few weeks ago, HTC has confirmed that HTC One mini 2 Android 5.0 Lollipop Update has been canceled due to performance issues. Today, HTC also confirmed via twitter that the Original HTC One mini won't be getting the Lollipop update.

 

 

The original One Mini was launched back in 2013 shortly after the original One M7. Considering the newer One Mini isn't getting the update, it's no surprise that the older one isn't either. However, this is rather unbecoming of a company to launch phones under the flagship brand name and then just leave them out in the cold later when it comes to updates.

 

VIA [Twitter]


 


HTC brought the One A9 to the world a month ago today and the company's America president, Jason Mackenzie, assured that the phone would get new Android update 15 days after Google's update is pushed to the Nexus devices.


After a few weeks from release, HTC has confirmed that this won't be applicable to only the new numbered versions of Android. They say that they're actually committed to get monthly security patches, just like Google's recent November update, pushed to U.S. unlocked A9s "within 15 business days of Google's first push to Nexus". Although it is a few days more than 15 days, the update to the latest Marshmallow can be considered timely.


A spokesperson from HTC gave the following official statement:


"We expect the software update with Google's November security patches to receive TA (Technical Acceptance) later today and roll out to customers immediately thereafter".


So if you own a U.S. unlocked HTC One A9, soon you'll get an OTA notification. Unfortunately, other versions of the A9 along with carrier-branded and unlocked European models won't enjoy the 15-day update as they are deployed on a different software track.


By the way, as per a tweet from HTC's Mo Versi, tonight the November security update and the updates for camera and battery will be rolled out.

If you are using a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 in Germany, we have good news for you because the Marshmallow update for unlocked versions of the Note 4 has just started to reach users throughout Germany. In case you have already been notified about the update reaching your Note 4, we recommend downloading it via a Wi-Fi connection as the update comes in an expectedly large package of 1.29GB. After you download and install it successfully, your base Android version will change to 6.0.1 Marshmallow.


Considering that India had already started receiving this update about four weeks ago (one week after its international release), some may consider this a bit late, but definitely not by much. If you are in Canada, we have good news for you too. The latest reports suggest that Telus is bringing Marshmallow to the carrier's Note 4 smartphones in Canada on May 16.


You can also check for the update from here: Settings> About device> Software update. If you do find that the update is available to you, just tap on Update now and follow the instructions. Once the process is completed, your Note 4 will become faster with better overall stability and you will be able to enjoy features such as controlling individual app permissions, better battery life (Doze) and a fresh look.

Samsung is keen to get the early adopters to try out virtual reality headsets for themselves. They're doing this by offering a pre-order bonus of a Gear VR headset with every purchase of a Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge. The pre-order must be in place before March 18 and can be ordered via a web form starting March 4.


Oculus is getting in on the act too (Gear VR actually comes from Oculus) with an additional offer of six Gear VR games bundled for free in the package. This has a retail value of $50. The games bundle will vary from mobile carrier to mobile carrier, but may include Land's End, Anshar Wars 2, and EVE: Gunjack.


For consumers who need a new phone and were also considering delving into some virtual reality, the cost of the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge comes close to just the cost of the Oculus Rift or HTC Vive alone. For buyers who move fast, they can enjoy perhaps their first taste of virtual reality with the Gear VR headset without paying more than the cost of the S7/S7 edge. These types of consumers may also find the separate cost of a high-end virtual reality headset from Oculus to be too expensive.

Samsung had earlier announced that customers in the US should start receiving safe replacements for their hazardous Note 7 smartphones by September 21 and they have kept their promise. Reports indicate that Samsung has already started to distribute the new batch of smartphones to the customers and resellers here in the US. We guess Tim Baxter (COO, Samsung Mobiles US) meant it when he proclaimed the aforementioned deadline in an official apology video, in which he also requested all customers to immediately power down their devices and contact Samsung for a replacement or a refund.



Apparently, Best Buy is one of the first resellers in the US to notify their customers about the replacements having arrived. Although we are not sure, but Best Buy is probably also the only reseller right now that's providing the replacement Galaxy note 7 smartphones to their customers. Nevertheless, we are pretty sure that the other resellers and carriers will pick up on it before September 21. Now that Samsung has guaranteed safety with their new batch of Note 7s, will you be opting to buy one or would you choose something else from what the competition has to offer?

After T-Mobile updated its version of the Samsung Galaxy S5 last week, Verizon has now decided to do the same. After downloading and installing the update, the flagship smartphone from 2014 will be upgraded to firmware version MMB29M.G900VVRU2DPD1 and base Android version 6.0.1 Marshmallow. Famous features like Google Now on Tap, customizable app permissions, Wi-Fi calling, revamped app icons, Ultra-High-Quality Audio, Doze and Android for Work are expected to make their way on to the Galaxy S5 with this update.



We found the Wi-Fi Calling facility to be particularly interesting which allows both incoming and outgoing calls over a Wi-Fi network when mobile networks cannot be reached. It needs to be activated from Settings> Advanced Calling> Activate Advanced Calling. After that, turn on HD Voice and Wi-Fi Calling, which you should be able to see on the same page once you Activate Advanced Calling.



If you have already seen the notification for this update, download and install it now, via a reliable Wi-Fi connection. If you have not seen any such notifications, don't worry as it always takes a while before an OTA update reaches all smartphones within the target area. Feel free to check manually from Settings> About device> Check for updates.

HTC M8

 

HTC's Vice President of Product Management Mo Versi has announced in a tweet that Android 4.4.3 is coming to Verizon's version of the HTC One M8 on Wednesday, September 10th. In addition to the higher release number, the over-the-air update will also include the long-awaited Extreme Power Saving mode.

 

HTC M8

 

This update will land a week after the feature arrived, ironically, on Verizon's version of the HTC One M7. With this OTA, a feature that debuted with the global launch of the M8 will have managed to hit every other version of the handset and last year's flagship before making it to Verizon's. Even for the Big Red, that's something to be proud of.

The update to Android Nougat 7.0 for the LG G5 is now being rolled out as you read this. It was expected as an Australian carrier named Optus had revealed earlier that the OS was being tested on the G5 and is almost at the verge of being ready for a final release. However, as of now, we have reports which state that the update is only available in South Korea. As confirmed by LG, it will also be hitting models all around the world in the next few weeks and more information will become available on the package locally, in respect to the geographical region concerned.
In the official statement at a press conference, this is what LG pointed out;


"At LG, we know our customers want the best, most up-to-date mobile experience,"


"Getting software updates to our users faster than the competition is our way of demonstrating that LG is committed to supporting our products and customers to ensure they have a positive ownership experience."


We must admit that we are seeing a much faster approach to providing updates to their flagship smartphones from the big boys such as Samsung and LG this time around. Don't forget that beta-testing of Android 7.0 will begin for the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge from November 9 as well, and the final build could be hitting the two devices all over the world by the end of 2016 or early 2017.

Lollipop

 

LG announced its plans on Updating its Latest flagship LG G3 to Android 5.0 Lollipop. LG German Facebook account has revealed that they will be looking to get the update out at some point in the fourth quarter, which is just another way to say by the End of 2014, which hints to a late December release.

 

Of course, that doesn't mean anyone and everyone will have the upgrade by then. This is likely the estimate for unlocked versions of the handset. Carrier-specific models will no doubt be subject to a bit of a delay and might stretch the timeline for many of you into 2015.

 

LG also confirmed plans to bring the upgrade to the LG G2, though they didn't have a solid date or window of time to commit to you'll simply be getting it "later" than the G3 crowd. We haven't gotten a taste of what Lollipop life on LG's handsets would be like but we imagine we'll have a better look as we inch toward the end of the calendar year.

According to a report by GSMArena, the Moto Z Droid and Moto Z Force Droid have started to receive the latest Android 7.0 Nougat update on Verizon. It has not yet been officially declared by the carrier, but reports are being received from reliable sources which confirm the authenticity of this news.


If your Moto Z Droid or Moto Z Force Droid is being prompted for the update, connect to your Wi-Fi and prepare for the download as it's a huge one at around 1.5GB. Once you have downloaded and upgraded the package successfully, the firmware version on the Moto Z Droid should change to NCL25.86-11, while on the Moto Z Force Droid, it should show NCL26.86-11.



Although the installation should only take about twenty minutes on its own, the downloading time will of course vary, depending on the speed of the connection. The upgrade will bring multiple improvements, as well as new features to the two Moto devices, namely the App Quick-Switch and the Split-Screen mode. As always, Lenovo Moto becomes one of the first manufacturers to provide the latest version of the Android OS officially.

We reported yesterday that the Galaxy S6 Edge + in Europe has started to receive the October patch and today we have even more good news for our readers in Europe as the S6 Edge has now also started to receive the same. The update will only be available on unlocked versions of the S6 Edge in Europe as you already know, so if you have a contract with a carrier, you will have to wait till a carrier specific version of the October patch arrives on your handset.


The update will fix 68 bugs/susceptibilities found on all Android 6.0.1 powered handsets, along with Samsung's own unique set of fixes for bugs exclusive to the range. The only thing we really know about the unique fixes which Samsung will bring with this update is the fact that it will solve an issue which causes the S6 Edge to hang at times while attempting to switch from one app to another. The rest of it is largely undisclosed in order to stop the hackers and cyber criminals from exploiting those gaps in security on the units that have not yet been updated.

The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge have finally started to receive the monthly security updates from Samsung for September. The update had hit this year's flagships, the S7 and S7 Edge earlier in the month. As far as we know, the security patch is currently only available for the unlocked versions in Europe and comes in at a size of 141MB. As expected, it will bring in both the Android and Samsung security patches for the month, but its availability will depend on where you are located and you carrier.


Samsung themselves have included fixes for nine issues into the patch, in addition to the 66 fixes that Google has incorporated into the update for the base Android 6.0.1 OS running on the two smartphones. If you have not seen the notification prompting you to update your device yet, you should see it soon. Post the upgrade, your smartphone's Base Band version should change to XXU4DPIL (unlocked European versions). If you are using a carrier-locked device though, it will take a bit longer as it usually does.

If you own a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 from T-Mobile, your device's update to Android Marshmallow in on its way. T-Mobile is the last major carrier in the US to update the Galaxy Note 4 as all others (including Verizon) had already released the same a while ago.
The update comes in at a hefty package of 1.5GB and therefore, we recommend the use of Wi-Fi for downloading it. After you download and install it on your SM-N910T, the build number should change to N910TUVU2EPE3 and the base Android version should upgrade to Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.



Even though T-Mobile took its sweet time in updating the Note 4, we were disappointed to see that the latest Android security patches were not included (or so it appears). Nevertheless, it is definitely an improvement over the Note 4's now dated Android version and User Interface. Although you should automatically be notified about the update as soon as it arrives on your smartphone via OTA, feel free to check it out manually from Settings > About device > Software update. Even if you don't see it now, you should see it within the next few days.

Samsung had just recently rolled out Android M to the Galaxy A7 (2016) in Russia and now it's time for the A5 (2016) to get the same treatment. After you download and install the hefty update, your PDA (build version) should change to A510FXXU2BPF9 and your CSC (sales code) should change to A510FOXY2BPF9. Also, you should now be able to see Android Marshmallow 6.0.1 as you base Android version.



As is the case with all Android Marshmallow updates, features such as Doze mode for a better battery life, Google Now on Tap and the ability to control app permissions individually are all expected to arrive to the A5 with this update. If you are in Russia, you should be receiving a notification prompting you to update your A5 any moment (if you haven't already). But if you want to check for yourself, go to Settings > About device > Software update and give it a try. If you do not see any available updates, do not worry because it will take a bit of time before all devices in Russia receive the package.

The Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are now receiving the November patch from T-Mobile. To be honest, we were a little surprised as it's not often that a Samsung phone receives the monthly security patch this early. In fact, T-Mobile has not even listed the OTA update on its website yet. Therefore, feel free to check manually from Settings > About device > Software update, but do not be disappointed if you cannot see it being available for you phone right now.


The update comes in an OTA package of about 82MB for both the S7 and the S7 Edge. Post the download and installation, the S7's firmware version will change to G930TUVU4PK1 and that of the S7 Edge to G935TUVU4APK1. Even though there isn't any concrete document to confirm it, this update could also make the S7 and S7 Edge compatible with 256 QAM and 64 QAM for improved download speeds. We will surely get to know more in the next few days, in the meanwhile, we just hope that the manufacturers and the carriers continue to work together and provide their customers with such timely updates!

Just like plenty of other regions around the world, the Galaxy S7s in India have also started to receive their November security update since yesterday. If you own an S7 Edge however, you will have to wait a while longer. Like always, the security update includes Google’s monthly security patches for the Android OS in general (6.0.1 Marshmallow), as well as fixes for 14 vulnerabilities unique to the Samsung smartphones. Overall improvements in terms of stability and performance were also mentioned in the changelog, but nothing else was pointed out specifically.


Head over to Settings > About device > Software update on your S7 and search for the November patch manually. If it hasn’t arrived on your phone yet, just wait a while longer as OTA updates never reach all phones in an area at the same time. If it’s already there however, connect to your Wi-Fi, download the 64.42MB file and install it. The Build Number of your S7 should show G930FXXU1BPJJ after the update is complete.

The December security update for the Samsung Galaxy A5 (2016) is now rolling out to handsets all around Europe. Hopefully other regions should start getting them very soon as well. The OTA file comes in at a surprisingly slim package of only 10.63MB with firmware version XXS3BPLA. The small package makes us curious as to if there are any changes or fixes from Samsung at all in this one. We know that the file contains the SMR from Google for the month of December, but not too many of Samsung's own customized improvements apparently.



However, strangely enough, some users are reporting that their units have been prompted for a 169MB update in the same region. It is unclear at the moment as to what's going on here. What do you see? You can check right now by going to Settings > About phone > Software update. Let us know the size of the file that you are prompted to download in the comments. Just in case you don't see any updates for your phone yet, don't worry, as the batches tend to take a while before reaching all the smartphones in an area.

If you own a Galaxy Note 4, we have good news for you. Samsung has now officially started to roll out the January security update for the older Note. Keep in mind that this update is only out for the unlocked variants and as of now, Germany is the first country to receive it. If Samsung follows its usual routes, then Netherlands will receive the security patch next. From there on, Poland and UK could be next in line.



The update will come in with the same 67 patches and fixes which are part of all Android January SMR updates. Additionally, 28 of Samsung's own custom fixes should also make their way onto your Galaxy Note 4, post the updating process. Check the details here on the official changelog. You should automatically be prompted to download and install it once it arrives on your phone, but feel free to check for the update manually from Settings > About device > Software updates, if you wish.

Thanks to Sammobile who have taken the time to accumulate names of all the Samsung devices that are confirmed to get updated to Nougat v7.0 or above, we have this list for you today. Keep in mind that there might be other names on this list as the year moves forward. Also, names of Samsung devices which will launch with the latest version of Android right out of the box are not included.

Galaxy S6 Edge
Galaxy S6 Edge+
Galaxy S6 Active
Galaxy S7
Galaxy S7 Edge
Galaxy S7 Active
Galaxy Note 5
Galaxy A3 (2016)
Galaxy A3 (2017)

After UAE, now Malaysia and France have begun to receive Samsung's Nougat 7.0 update for the Galaxy S7 Edge. Compared to the speed at which Samsung was rolling Marshmallow to the Galaxy S6 line-up in 2016, it has been admittedly faster this year. In France, Orange (local carrier) was reported to roll out the OTA update to the S7 Edges, starting from 25th January. Unfortunately, the regular Galaxy S7 has not been so lucky in these regions so far.


You can always check manually from the About device section of your phone to see if the update has arrived on your phone. In case it hasn't arrived yet, don't worry as these updates are rolled out in batches and that's why it often takes a bit of time before reaching every eligible handset. However, if you are impatient, then check our firmware section to find the right files for your version of the S7 Edge. If you are new to this, do check the tutorial as well before flashing the ROM files though.

It was just yesterday that we reported about the Galaxy J2 Prime being updated by Samsung with the latest security patch for 2017 and now we already have news about the Galaxy J5 Prime receiving the same update. The J5 Prime was released near the end of the third quarter of 2016 and even though it is fairly new, chances of the mid-range handset being updated to Nougat isn't that great. However, Samsung has changed its strategy when it comes to delivering updates to its budget smartphones, so let's just hope that we are wrong about this.


You can check manually for the update if you wish, but you should get the prompt automatically when the January security update reaches your smartphone. The firmware version coming with this patch is G570FXXU1AQA2.


If you can't wait for the latest updates which may or may not be officially rolled out by Samsung, or you would simply like to try something else on your device, head over to our firmware section and check out the hundreds of firmware packages we have for you. Just make sure to go through the tutorial first and download the package that matches with your device's name and model number.

The January security patch has now officially started to roll out to the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy S6 Edge+ and the Galaxy Note 5 on Verizon. One may argue that it's already February but it's better late than never. Surprisingly, it was the Galaxy S5, the Galaxy Note 4 and the Galaxy Note Edge which had received the SMR update a few days earlier than their newer counter parts. The firmware versions have been listed below respectively.


Galaxy S6 - G920VVRS4CQA3
Galaxy S6 Edge - G928VVRS3BQA1
Galaxy Edge+ - G925VVRS4CQA3
Galaxy Note 5 - N920VVRS3BQA1


Wait till you get a notification or search manually for the update from your settings menu, but it may take a few days before it reaches every device in the US, that's being carried by Verizon. The ROM files are not yet available for download, but you can always check out our firmware section for the latest updates that are available anytime you want.

The Galaxy S4 and the Galaxy Tab 3 from Samsung may be old, but they have not yet been forgotten. While an OS upgrade to even Lollipop is not exactly on the cards (at least not officially that is) for the two aged devices, T-Mobile is currently rolling out the latest February security patch to them. It is always good to see carriers and OEMs remembering their old devices once in a while.


If you are still using any of the two legacy devices on T-Mobile, the OTA update should hit your phone or tablet any time now. Firmware version M919UVSFQA1 comes in for the Galaxy S4, while the Galaxy Tab 3 gets updated to T217TUVSBQA1.


In the meanwhile, if you have an old smartphone that you want to update but Samsung isn't really likely to roll one out for you anytime soon, head over to our firmware section for a wide list of custom ROM updates.

The February security patch has been reaching Samsung handsets pretty fast and the company has shipped them out to even some of the ancient ones, like the Galaxy S4 on T-Mobile. The Galaxy A8 and the Galaxy J5 (2016) has just started to receive the monthly patch as well. The firmware version released this month for the A8 and the J5 (2016) is A810FXXU1AQA2 and J510MNUBU2AQA5 respectively. The J5 Prime and the J7 Prime had already received the update a few days ago. As always, feel free to cheek from Settings > About device > System updates for the OTA file, if you haven't received a notification yet.


In the meanwhile, if you have a smartphone that had received its last official update ages ago, check out our firmware section for all firmware versions released for Samsung smartphones. You will find custom ROMs and official updates over there, but before you try to flash anything onto your phone manually, just go through our tutorial on how to use Odin3.

Just when everyone was starting to think that the S5 Mini was forgotten and abandoned by Samsung, the device has started to receive Android v6.0.1 Marshmallow. This is good news for S5 Mini owners across Europe and if you are in the region and yet have not been prompted for the OTA update yet, don't worry, you will be soon enough. You can also check manually from Settings > About device > Software update to verify as always.


The particular model number of the S5 Mini currently being upgraded to Marshmallow is SM-G800F and the firmware version is G800FXXU1CQA1. In addition to the OS upgrade, the package also contains the SMR release for the month of January, as expected. We know that a Nougat update is what most handset owners are looking forward to nowadays, but that's never going to happen for the Galaxy S5 Mini, at least not officially anyway. Nevertheless, you should see a lot of positive changes on your device after the update like added features, better security, improvements in stability and a better battery life.

It has been a while now since Samsung released the Nougat 7.0 update for the S7 and S7 Edge. T-Mobile and AT&T had already started with rolling out the carrier versions and now Sprint just joined them. As of now, reports suggest that only the handsets which were enrolled into the Galaxy Beta Program are getting the update, but other users should be receiving the stable build very soon as well.


Although the actual size of the full Android Nougat v7.0 update is supposed to be more than 1.2GB, the one that's currently rolling out to the beta testers who already have Nougat installed, is just a 167MB file. To find the update manually, head over to Settings > About device > Software update. If it's not there yet, just wait a few days and you should be prompted to update your S7 or S7 Edge automatically.

Reports have been coming in to confirm that the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge in Germany, Belgium and Netherlands are now receiving the much awaited Nougat 7.0 update. The update is currently live for the unlocked variants of the two smartphones with the model numbers SM-G930F (S7) and SM-G935F (S7 Edge). The 1.3GB OTA upgrade package will arrive with all the usual bells and whistles that accompany Android v7.0 Nougat and a few patches.


The good news is that even if you own a carrier locked variant of the S7 or the S7 Edge, you will probably get a notification prompting you to download the update. The thing is that carriers in Europe have already started to roll out Nougat to the two Galaxy devices about two weeks ago. Those that didn't roll out the update previously, will start doing so from today. Let us know if any OTA update has hit your device yet in the comments. Also, head over to our firmware section to get access to all the latest ROM update files.

It always feels good to see an old device getting support from the OEM and although Samsung wasn't previously famous for doing that, 2016 - 17 has seen that scenario change. Reports have now confirmed that the Galaxy S5 is indeed receiving an update in Europe. The 127 MB file contains the February security patch but that's not all. It contains some of Samsung's own little tweaks for improving the performance of its flagship device from 2014. Post the update, the firmware version on the S5 will change to G900FXXS1CQB5.We do not have info about carrier locked versions yet.



If you are still using the 3 year old device, you should be prompted to download the update anytime now, provided you are in the initial release zone. Even if you are not in Europe, don't worry because it is very likely that all versions of the S5 will be getting the February security patch. Nevertheless, depending on your location, you might have to wait a bit more than others. In the meanwhile, head over to our firmware section to find all the latest available updates for your Samsung smartphone.

Unlike in most other regions, updates from Samsung have been reaching unlocked variants of its range of Galaxy smartphones later than the carrier-locked versions. This was a cause for frustration and contempt for those who bought unlocked flagship devices like the S7 and S7 Edge at a premium price. Although they did get less bloatware and the obvious freedom of switching to any network they want, most updates ended up being infrequent and later than even their carrier counterparts. Once you consider that Android 7.0 Nougat has not yet landed on the unlocked S7 and S7 Edge in the US, while all major carrier versions have received it, the reasons for those frustrations become apparent.



All that is about to change, according to a conversation between ZDNet and Samsung Mobile Security. It is to be noted that this reply is the same as the one received by one of the site's readers earlier to a similar query (screenshot above).


"Due to various circumstances, we have been releasing security updates for unlocked (open) Galaxy devices in the U.S. on a quarterly basis. However, we have now resolved the challenges; and we are committed to releasing security updates for those devices on a monthly basis."


At this time, it expected that the soon to be released March security update for the unlocked S7 and S7 Edge will come with the belated Nougat upgrade package. Let's hope what we are reading here is true and Samsung is able to follow up on that promise.

Security patch for the month of February has now started to reach the Galaxy A7 original. You may argue that it's already the middle of March, but hey! Better late than never. Besides, the Galaxy A7 original was released back in 2015 and it's a good thing that Samsung is still updating the device with regular patches. Then again, it has been the trend with Samsung recently to support even some of its older phones; a trend which we like very much.


The update comes in with the firmware version A700FXXU2BQB1 and should reach your region soon. In case you are wondering where this report originated from, know that the OTA file is currently being rolled out to the A7 handsets in the Netherlands. The report came to our attention, thanks to SamMobile and their sources.


If you have an older handset that you want to upgrade or if you want to flash the latest Nougat ROM on your Galaxy S7 or S6, head over to our firmware section and find all the latest available updates for your Samsung smartphones.

Yes it is true; Samsung's most neglected flagship has started to receive the Nougat update. However, just like it was with the Galaxy Note 5, the update is only live in Turkey as of now. According to the source, firmware version XXU3CQC7 is now live via OTA in the region. More European nations should be getting the update in the coming days. If you are in Europe, be on the lookout.


Just as with the Galaxy Note 5 package, the update will probably weigh in at roughly 1.3GB. Samsung may be a bit late on releasing the update though, because according to previously released information, the S6 Edge+ should have started to receive Nougat by March 14. Nevertheless, like I always say in case of firmware updates, better late than never!


According to the same roadmap, the Galaxy A3 (2016) and the Galaxy A8 should get Nougat next. Although we are pretty sure that it won't arrive on the exact date, it seems like you can expect the OTA rollout to begin by the end of April.
