November security update released for the Samsung Galaxy A3 (2016)

25 November, 2016 Samsung Updates

Security update for the month of November has finally arrived for the Galaxy A3 (2016) in Europe. The update is only available to the unlocked versions of course, as carrier versions usually get their updates a little later than the unlocked ones. The package contains all the 60 improvements and bug fixes found in the Google Android Security Maintenance Release for the month of November. Additionally, there are also 14 unique patches and fixes from Samsung, catered specifically for their own handsets.

Other regions should also start receiving the security package via OTA soon, but the exact timeline isn't clear at the moment. If you are in Europe however, you should get an OTA prompt to update your device very soon, if you have not already. Just to make sure, go to Settings > About device > Software Update and search for it manually. When it does arrive on your A3 (2016), the firmware version will change to XXU2BPK2, post the download and installation process. OTA updates are rolled out in batches, so it might take a week or so for it to reach all devices within the eligible region.
