Verizon releases security patches for multiple Android flagships

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.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
