Samsung Galaxy S5 receives a security update

If you have a Samsung Galaxy S5, this story interests you, because the Samsung company has just launched a security update for all devices that are in Europe. And of course in Spain.

The data package in question would be the one that corresponds to the security package that Google launched last February , but in reality, it would be the most recent one that exists for the Samsung Galaxy S5.

Users who have a Samsung Galaxy S5 and are in the Old Continent should keep an eye on their phone for the next few hours, because they will most likely receive a notification. The firmware version that is being distributed has the following code: G900FXXS1CQB5, so if you receive an update proposal, we recommend that you pay attention to this information.

Apparently, it is a minor update (here we do not have to wait for a version change), but it is before a data package that should be installed soon, because it brings corrections to dozens of vulnerabilities that Google has located in Android operating system. In addition, and as is usual in these cases, Samsung would also have added a good number of corrections that would affect only this device.

The Samsung Galayx S5 will continue to work until the end of its useful life with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow , the latest version that is operational for this phone, so there will be no possibility of moving to Android 7.0 Nougat.

If you have a Samsung Galaxy S5 you can access the Settings section > About the device> Updates> Update now to check if the data package is available. If not, don't worry, you should receive the notice shortly.

Remember that before updating the mobile via FOTA (Firmware Over The Air) or without cables, first you will have to have the battery well charged (at least 50% of its capacity) and be connected to a WiFi network that can guarantee you a minimum of stability. In this way you will not waste unnecessary data either.
