Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge Gets the BlueBorne Patch in Europe

2 October, 2017 Samsung Updates

After patching quite a few other models, Samsung has now turned its attention to the flagship handsets from the year 2015; the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge. If you live in the European region, your S6 or S6 Edge should be prompted for an OTA update soon enough. If you have the regular S6, the build version should be G920FXXU5EQI6, while if you have the S6 Edge, you should see build number G925FXXU5EQI6 making its way onto your smartphone.

Just like all the other BlueBorne patches released by Samsung so far, this one doesn't have the September patch from Google either. This essentially means that Samsung has actually skipped the September patch altogether in favor of rolling out the BlueBorne security update. We will now have to wait for the October update to arrive for all Samsung devices.

Just in case you are not aware what BlueBorne is, know that it is the latest hack that's threatening security across all the three major platforms; Android, iOS and Windows. All it needs is a Bluetooth connection (not even permission to connect is required) and hackers can access your device and all data in it. Better download the update fast!

Head over to our firmware section to find all the latest available updates for your Samsung smartphones and tablets.
