Verizon releases security patches for multiple Android flagships

HTC 10 Android flagship on Verizon Wireless gets a new security patch

This major US carrier closed last year by releasing security patches for no less than 11 flagships on its network, including older devices like the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and the Galaxy S5.

When it comes to software updates, Verizon Wireless is a carrier that seems to care even for older handsets. For example, the Samsung Galaxy S5 flagship that arrived on the market loaded with the now ancient Android 4.4 KitKat is one of the 11 devices that received security patches at the end of last week.

The handsets below are the ones that received the updates from Verizon, next to the latest software version now available: 

Unfortunately, none of the devices above got anything else than minor security patches, so those eager to receive new features should wait for a while. Anyway, be sure we will report such important updates as soon as they arrive, so stay tuned.
