November security update released for the Samsung Galaxy S5 (unlocked)

6 December, 2016 Samsung Updates

We are almost a week into December, but Samsung has only just released the November security update for its flagship smartphone from 2014. The OTA file has so far been reported to be available in the Netherlands, Germany and Poland. This particular update concerns only the unlocked versions of the Galaxy S5 and not the carrier specific ones. Even though it's late, we are quite happy to see that Samsung has not abandoned the S5 completely.

The security update comes in with the same multiple fixes as is the part of all the other November Security Maintenance Release (SMR) from Google, as well as the 14 fixes from Samsung for the month. Even if it has not arrived in your region, don‘t worry as it will eventually reach all regions as always. In the meanwhile, Google has already released the final version of the Android OS 7.1.1 and the December SMR on the same date. Samsung on the other hand, is still testing out Android 7.0 on its flagships from this year (Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge) under the Galaxy Beta Program.

Head over to to find all the latest updates for your smartphone.
