We have good news for our readers in India because Samsung has decided to bring Android Marshmallow to even the entry level Galaxy J5 Original this year. In fact, the 874.17MB update has been rolled out to the J5 even before the J7 Original, which will receive the update soon as well.



Once you download and install the update (preferably via Wi-Fi), the build number on your phone should change to J500FXXU1BPF and the base Android version should now show 6.0.1 Marshmallow. You will need to take a good look at the change log to see all the changes that you will see on your J5, post the upgrade. We think that the "New TouchWiz" should be particularly interesting to experience for the first time. You can also expect features common to the Android M OS to now become a part of your smartphone, like customizable app permissions, better battery life with Doze, Google Now on Tap, etc.


The update will take time to reach every smartphone in the country via OTA, but you can always check for it from Settings > About Device > Software update on your device. Did you expect your J5 to receive the Marshmallow treatment? They did take their sweet time with it, but considering the fact that Samsung isn't really known for providing major updates to its older entry level phones, this is good news indeed.

It has been just a week or so since the first build of the beta went live for the S7 and S7 Edge in Europe and they have already released the second build in Europe! This package will come to the eligible smartphones as an OTA update, just like the first build. The changes that the 92MB file brings to the basic build are mainly improvements in stability, performance and minor bug fixes, rather than any significant new features that are worth mentioning.



Incidentally, today also marks the date when the first version of the Nougat beta build went live in China for eligible users of the Galaxy Beta Program. South Korea is yet to receive the second build from Samsung, even though it was the first country to receive the initial beta build. Nevertheless, irrespective of your device's location, if it has been selected for the Galaxy Beta Program, all builds of the beta Nougat program will come to your S7 or S7 Edge eventually.

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo users are eagerly waiting on fire for their Lollipop update, the Original Note 3 has already been updated a while ago. YouMobile is trying to gather all info about this Note 3 Neo updates for its readers. Here's what we got so far.

 

 

 

 

SamsungNederland confirmed via twitter a week ago that Galaxy Note 3 Neo update will roll-out in "phases", like any other update it will be a staged roll-out that will be available region-by-region / carrier-by-carrier. However, Samsung Nederland still doesn't have any release date on when the update will start rolling-out yet.

 

Note 3 Neo

 

2 days ago, Samsung published an official Firmware update for the Galaxy Note 3 Neo (SM-N750) with Android build 4.4.2 KitKat to India (INS), the update has a very fresh build date (April,8 2015) which is exactly one month ago. This release is a Preparation update for the Lollipop release, in some cases Samsung tends to release a minor update before a major one as a preparation, this means that Samsung's development team is working on the Note 3 Neo firmware developments.

 

Galaxy Note 3 Neo Firmware Details (Minor):

Just as a reminder, Samsung France has already confirmed the update on twitter before, also didn't specify a release date, just said that it's coming "Later this year".


When Lollipop is Coming ?

 

The Android 5.0 Lollipop update for the Galaxy Note 3 Neo is expected to be released by [Late June - Early July] and it's currently "In-development".


Where to get the update ?

 

As we said above, the update is a staged roll-out, means it will take a long time (few weeks) to reach all users. We will publish the Lollipop firmwares on the Note 3 Neo YouFirmware Section as soon as it gets released so you can flash it manually and don't have to wait.

 

VIA 1, VIA 2



The year 2016 is coming to an end and Samsung has just detailed everything about the final patch of the year. Google had released the December SMR a few days ago, along with Android 7.1.1 Nougat for select devices and had given OEM companies access to the firmware. If you are wondering when your Samsung phone is going to get Nougat version 7.1.1, we have no clue, because Samsung is still far from releasing the final, stable version of Nougat 7.0 yet.


The December patch however, is definitely coming to all the recent smartphones from the company's arsenal, as well as a few of the old ones. Apart from the multiple fixes and performance improvements from Google itself, the patch will also address 15 issues that are unique to Samsung smartphones. Fortunately, it will solve a problem that I have personally been bogged down with. The mobile Wi-Fi hotspot would turn on automatically sometimes on my phone and the password would simply be presented in the log!



When exactly your smartphone will receive the December patch depends on your location, carrier and of course, the model that you are using. Nevertheless, it shouldn't be too long now.

Although we are already into the second week of March, not all smartphones are fortunate enough to expect the March SMR package from OEMs and carriers yet. In fact, most older and budget devices have not even received the January security patch. If you own a Galaxy Note 4 or a Galaxy J5 Original though, you are in luck as T-mobile and Samsung respectively have released the January security patch for them.



The unlocked versions and even certain carrier variants of the Note 4 had started to receive the February patch a few days ago in Europe, so it is a bit disappointing to see T-Mobile taking so much time in rolling out even the dated updates in the US. Nevertheless, the 60.54MB package with build number MMB29M.N910TUVS2EQB1 should arrive via OTA on your Note 4 anytime now.



On the Galaxy J5 original, the January update arrives with the build number MMB29M.J500FNXXU1BQA3. This one comes straight from Samsung and not a carrier. Just as with all other January security updates from Samsung, this one will address 67 potential security issues common to all Android devices and 28 of Samsung's own custom fixes for vulnerabilities exclusive to Samsung smartphones.

It is now official; the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge smartphones are now receiving Android Nougat 7.0 in Europe. The news comes in roughly when it was expected to, so kudos to Samsung for maintaining the schedule (more or less!). Also, we must thank The Android Soul for bringing forth the news, along with screenshots.



The S6 is getting Nougat 7.0 with the firmware version G920FXXU5EQBG, in a 1.4GB OTA file. The S6 Edge is also receiving a 1.4GB file with the same OS upgrade, but with the firmware version G925FXXU5EQBG. Remember that depending on the country, the firmware version may differ slightly. Carrier versions in the region have not started receiving Nougat yet though.


According to reports, the updates include almost all the improvements we saw on the S7 and S7 Edge builds, with the exception of the Performance mode and the option to change display resolutions like a Windows device. Then again, we were not expecting those features to make it to the S6 and S6 Edge anyway.

As you probably know already, Samsung have been facing quite a few issues since the Galaxy S8's launch and although none of them are as large as what happened with the Note 7 (fortunately!), they are there nonetheless. The red tint problem have been bugging a few early adopters of the S8 and S8+ in certain sections of the world and Samsung started to address the problem a few days back when they released a fix for it in South Korea. They have now started to release the same update to its European customers.


The so called fix is however more of a "do-it-yourself" update than a patch really. After installing the update, users will now be able to control the RGB balance of the main panel, in addition to the edges (screen edge colour balance) where it reportedly looked more reddish than anywhere else on the display. There will also be a new option to make your phone look warmer or cooler, depending on your preference. Now we are just waiting for Samsung to address the more serious Galaxy S8 restart problem that some customers are complaining about. Have you faced any of these issues on your Galaxy S8 or S8+ yet?

We are no longer surprised these days to see Samsung's latest flagship handsets being updated after low-mid range handsets form the company, because that's the route which the OEM had followed lately. However, we do not blame the company for this. As far as I can tell, it's simpler, faster and easier to roll out these security updates for the lower-end handsets and Samsung has decided that they will not hold up critical security updates for any of their devices, just for the sake of updating the costlier sets first. If that is truly the case then it's a noble approach and I can respect that. Keep in mind that this is speculation only and not exactly a fact!


As per the latest report by SamMobile, the update is only rolling out in France at the moment and the size of the file is huge! It's a 707MB update so make sure that you are connected to your Wi-Fi before starting the download. This almost makes you wonder what that patch brings alongside the 13 Samsung exclusive fixes and multiple Android OS related vulnerabilities. Interestingly, the source reports that the changelog doesn't mention anything about that at all, strangely enough! Do keep us updated if you see the January security patch making its way on devices outside France as well.
