Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge November Security Update Available


Owners of Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge devices that use T-Mobile as a network carrier should be happy to hear that the carrier finally started rolling out the November security updates. The firmware build number of the two devices will be changed to G920TUVU5EPK5 for the Galaxy S6 and to G925TUVU5EPK for the Edge variant.

We have to wait for T-Mobile to update their support website with the full update log before we can check if there are other updates included alongside the November security updates. T-Mobile’s timing isn’t quite on point since Google is already working on releasing the December security updates, but nonetheless it’s better late than never. Let’s just hope the next security update will come at the right time, and not one month late.

User security is very important and Google knows that too well because they are rolling out new security updates every month. This way the hackers will have a hard time trying to steal someone’s data or install malware software, but what is more important is that the Android user feels more secure every time a new security patch is rolled out. Regarding the security patch content, we don’t know what security breaches the patch fixes because Google has yet to release the complete patch notes. The reason why Google upholds information about their monthly security patches is that not all of Android powered devices receive the updates at the same time and listing all the security breaches might make devices that didn’t receive the update vulnerable. Right now, residents of the U.S. that own T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge devices should keep their eyes peeled to the notification panel and be ready to install the update as soon as it becomes available.
