Samsung starts rolling out January security update


Inline with its August 2015 commitment of providing monthly security updates, Samsung has now announced the roll-out of this month’s Android security patch.

As always, the company said the update is for “major flagship models,” but didn’t list any specific handsets. FYI, previous months’ updates rolled out to the Galaxy Note5 as well as the Galaxy S6 family, among others.

The update includes patches – including those for several critical issues – from both Google as well as the South Korean company. While Samsung provided details on several publicly known issues, it didn’t disclose any information on some, presumably citing security reasons.
