Verizon releases security patches for multiple Android flagships
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:
- Samsung Galaxy Note 4, N910VVRS2CPL1
- Samsung Galaxy Note 5, N920VVRS3BPL4
- Samsung Galaxy Note Edge, N915VVRS2CPL1
- Samsung Galaxy S5, G900VVRS2DPL1
- Samsung Galaxy S6, G920VVRS4CPL3
- Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, G925VVRS4CPL3
- Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+, G928VVRS3BPL4
- HTC 10, 1.85.605.9
- Lenovo Moto Z/Moto Z DROID, NCLS25.86-11-4
- Lenovo Moto Z Play, MCOS24.104-35-1-19
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.
