November Security Update Lands on the Galaxy Note 5

17 November, 2017 Samsung Updates

Anyone following Samsung's latest update schedule knows that they have been quite unpredictable lately. After skipping the September patch altogether in favor of patching the BlueBorne threat, Samsung decided to roll out the October security update in mid-November for even flagship handsets such as the Galaxy S8 and S8+. Just as we had started to think they might skip the November patch as well, the OEM proved us wrong by releasing the November security patch for a number of its smartphone and tablets. The Galaxy Note 5 happens to be the latest of the lucky handsets that are getting the OTA November security updates, but instead of starting in Europe like these usually do, the roll out was seen first in Taiwan according to SamMobile.

You probably know this already, but just in case you don't, here are the major fixes included in this patch.

·        Fixes for 61 vulnerabilities in the base Android OS

·        Six fixes for Samsung's own overlying UI

·        fix for the KRACK Wi-Fi threat

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