October Security Patch Hits the Galaxy J3 (2017) in US

1 November, 2017 Samsung Updates

If you own the Galaxy J3 (2017) and you live in the US, we have good news for you. Although it's already November, Samsung has finally managed to release the October security patch for the handset. As long as you own the model SM-J327U, you should be seeing the update arrive anytime now.

Firmware version J327UUEU1AQJ1 will patch about 215 common vulnerabilities and bugs in the base Android OS, in addition to the six that's common to only Samsung handsets. In case you are wondering why you did not receive the September patch, know that no Samsung handset did! The OEM was too busy patching up the infamous BlueBorne threat on all its models to release the September patch. As to why the October patch arrived this late, that's just how Samsung works; they were never known for delivering timely updates every month in the first place!

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