Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ gets software update, October 2016 security patch

Two weeks after the Galaxy S7 lineup received the new firmware in Europe, the Galaxy S6 Edge+ gets the same treatment. Sadly, this month's security update only hits the 5.7-inch Android phablet in Europe for the time being.

With October practically over, there are still handsets that have to receive this month's security updates. Samsung seems to be hard at work trying to keep its promises and now, two weeks after the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge got updated, the Galaxy S6 Edge+ receives the security update dated October, 2016 as well. For now, this only seems to happen in Europe.

The new firmware version is XXU3BPJ3 and integrates quite a few fixes - 68 Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVEs), as well as 7 patches for Samsung-only problems. Other than these, there are no new features to talk about. Unfortunately, although Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ has quite powerful hardware, the handset remains stuck with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow for now.

European users of this device should expect the update to roll out in stages, as usual. Those who want to check manually and start the update before the automatic notification shows up should go to Settings > About Device > Download Updates Manually, as usual.
