Galaxy Note 5 October Patch
The Security Maintenance Release for the month of October 2017 brings fixes for 215 vulnerabilities discovered in the core Android operating system. It includes fixes for six vulnerabilities discovered in Samsung’s software as well.
The October 2017 security patch has bumped up most devices from the August patch as Samsung essentially skipped the release for September. It was busy patching the Blueborne vulnerability so it put the monthly security patches on the back burner.
Samsung has rolled out this update for the single-SIM variant of the Galaxy Note 5 in India. The country did get a dual-SIM variant but the update hasn’t been rolled out for it as yet.
This firmware update for the Galaxy Note 5 is now rolling out over-the-air. It’s only going to be a matter of time before users in China and India get it on their handsets. The update is also available for download from our firmware section.
