The January Security Update Arrives for the Galaxy Note 5

23 January, 2018 Samsung Updates

We reported yesterday that the Note 8 had started receiving this month's security update and now another one of Samsung's Note devices are up on the list for the same. The Galaxy Note 5 is still one of the best Note devices in Samsung's arsenal and firmware version N920CXXS4CRA1 is all set to make it more secure than ever before.

In case you are wondering which regions are getting the update, it's a mouthful! Nevertheless, they happen to be mostly African and Middle-Eastern countries such as the UAE, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Nigeria, etc. The only South Asian country reported to get the January security update for the Galaxy Note 5 (SM-920C) is Pakistan. Wherever you are though, if the update is released in your region, you should be getting a prompt anytime now.

The update will fix six critical Android OS related security issues and multiple other less threatening vulnerabilities in the OS. As always, Samsung has also bundled in some of their own fixes, which happens to be 13 at the moment. Do check out today's daily firmware updates list if you want to manually flash the update without having to wait for the OTA push.
