Samsung has pushed surprise updates for its more than five years old Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy S6 Edge+ & Note 5 devices. It is really surprising for many users as they never thought Samsung will provide new updates for their five-year-old devices. The last major update for the Galaxy S6 Series & Note 5 was released in 2018, and later the company announced to stop regular security updates for them. Since the last two years, 2015’s flagship Galaxy S6 & Note 5 models never received any updates. Now, the firmware version N920SKSS2DTJ2 is rolling out for the Galaxy Note 5 in the home country.
The Galaxy S6, S6 Edge & S6 Edge+ are receiving firmware version G92*FXXS6ETI6. Despite the fact, Samsung released a new piece of code for these smartphones, they will still run on Android Nougat’s security patches. The Galaxy S6 series is still on June 2018 security patch, and Note 5 runs on the August 2018 security patch. The changelog only mentions that the new version comes with enhanced security and provides stability to the devices. It is better to use the device before comment on the new versions.
This month, Samsung has also provided the latest security updates for the Galaxy S7 & S7 Edge. At the beginning of this year, Samsung has also released new firmware for the five-year-old Gear S2 smartwatch, but it didn’t reach every user. In the market, Samsung has introduced Galaxy Note 20 & Note 20 Ultra models, but it is good that the company hasn’t forgotten their previous devices. The latest firmware for Galaxy S6 Series & Note 5 has released in South Korea. You can check for updates from the phone settings if you are still using the phones.
