If you are using a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 in Germany, we have good news for you because the Marshmallow update for unlocked versions of the Note 4 has just started to reach users throughout Germany. In case you have already been notified about the update reaching your Note 4, we recommend downloading it via a Wi-Fi connection as the update comes in an expectedly large package of 1.29GB. After you download and install it successfully, your base Android version will change to 6.0.1 Marshmallow.

Considering that India had already started receiving this update about four weeks ago (one week after its international release), some may consider this a bit late, but definitely not by much. If you are in Canada, we have good news for you too. The latest reports suggest that Telus is bringing Marshmallow to the carrier's Note 4 smartphones in Canada on May 16.

You can also check for the update from here: Settings> About device> Software update. If you do find that the update is available to you, just tap on Update now and follow the instructions. Once the process is completed, your Note 4 will become faster with better overall stability and you will be able to enjoy features such as controlling individual app permissions, better battery life (Doze) and a fresh look.

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.

If you own a Galaxy Note 4, we have good news for you. Samsung has now officially started to roll out the January security update for the older Note. Keep in mind that this update is only out for the unlocked variants and as of now, Germany is the first country to receive it. If Samsung follows its usual routes, then Netherlands will receive the security patch next. From there on, Poland and UK could be next in line.

The update will come in with the same 67 patches and fixes which are part of all Android January SMR updates. Additionally, 28 of Samsung's own custom fixes should also make their way onto your Galaxy Note 4, post the updating process. Check the details here on the official changelog. You should automatically be prompted to download and install it once it arrives on your phone, but feel free to check for the update manually from Settings > About device > Software updates, if you wish.

Unlike in most other regions, updates from Samsung have been reaching unlocked variants of its range of Galaxy smartphones later than the carrier-locked versions. This was a cause for frustration and contempt for those who bought unlocked flagship devices like the S7 and S7 Edge at a premium price. Although they did get less bloatware and the obvious freedom of switching to any network they want, most updates ended up being infrequent and later than even their carrier counterparts. Once you consider that Android 7.0 Nougat has not yet landed on the unlocked S7 and S7 Edge in the US, while all major carrier versions have received it, the reasons for those frustrations become apparent.

All that is about to change, according to a conversation between ZDNet and Samsung Mobile Security. It is to be noted that this reply is the same as the one received by one of the site's readers earlier to a similar query (screenshot above).

"Due to various circumstances, we have been releasing security updates for unlocked (open) Galaxy devices in the U.S. on a quarterly basis. However, we have now resolved the challenges; and we are committed to releasing security updates for those devices on a monthly basis."

At this time, it expected that the soon to be released March security update for the unlocked S7 and S7 Edge will come with the belated Nougat upgrade package. Let's hope what we are reading here is true and Samsung is able to follow up on that promise. In the meanwhile, head over to our firmware section to find all the latest available updates for your Samsung smartphones.

Would you believe it? The unlocked version of the S7 Edge is finally getting its first taste of Nougat! Although it has been more than four months since all carrier versions of the two devices first started to receive Android N, the unlocked version was kept out of the loop for some unknown reason. Theoretically, the update should have actually arrived faster on the unlocked version like it does everywhere else, but that doesn't happen to Samsung phones in America quite clearly.

The good news is that it's finally out there, heading towards your unfortunate and outdated S7 Edge as you read this, in the form of a massive OTA update. The bad news is that it's late enough to be too early for an update to Android O! Considering these are 2016 flagships from Samsung that we are talking about, it would be safe to say that if you plan to buy the Galaxy S8 in the US and get updates too, you better pledge your allegiance to one of the networks. By the way, if you are wondering why the S7 isn't mentioned on this list, then that's because Samsung hasn't released the Nougat 7.0 update for the flat screen variant yet...

Contrary to every other place in the world, the United States of America is not a good place to buy an unlocked Samsung device if you want fast updates! In the last few years, it has been established that carrier versions will always receive the latest updates before unlocked versions in the country. We are not sure if it's a business decision, but it isn't an unlikely explanation. Nevertheless, the good news is that the unlocked S8 and the S8 + have finally started to receive the latest security patch from the OEM.

In case you are wondering, the same patch was already released previously on all major carriers which include AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, USC and Virgin Mobile USA. The 600+ MB package will arrive via OTA and the firmware version on it will be G950U1UEU1AQH3. Check to see if it has already arrived from Settings > Software Update. If it isn't there yet, just wait for a few hours and try again.

If you happen to own a Galaxy Note 8 in the US without contract, we have good news for you because as per a report by PhoneArena, the latest flagship handset from Samsung just started receiving the November security update via OTA in the United States. The update fixes 6 of Samsung's own bugs and vulnerabilities in the User Interface, along with 61 problems common to all Android OS powered smartphones and tablets. The fix for the KRACK Wi-Fi security threat is also included.

The Verizon versions of the Galaxy Note 8 also started receiving an OTA update, but as it turns out, it does not contain the November security patch, but only the update for October; talk about being late! Even the Verizon update includes the KRACK patch though. What the this update from Verizon does have however, are modifications and improvements on the camera app. The details of which, you can check out below.

·         Bright yellow background for the Live Focus feature

·         Addition of "+" and "-" buttons for adjusting background blur

While Samsung has already finished rolling out the Android 8.0 Oreo update in most regions across the world, the unfortunate users of the unlocked smartphone in the US had not yet received the same. The good news is that has changed now because multiple reports have confirmed that the unlocked Galaxy S8 and S8+ have finally started receiving the elusive update in the United States.

As it is the tradition in the country, the carrier versions always get the update before the unlocked variants, although, it should technically be the other way around. Clearly, this is more a business decision than anything else, but even then, it's a decision that users can do little about. Nevertheless, seeing that the update has arrived only after a short time since it was first being rolled out to the carrier variants, we would say it's an improvement over previous records. In case you own any of the two handsets, firmware version G950U1UEU2CRB9 (S8) or G955U1UEU2CRB9 (S8+) will be making its way onto your device anytime now, via OTA. Both updates should have a size of around 1.3GB roughly.
