With age taking over Samsung Galaxy Note 4, performance issues might start creeping in. Even though most of the attention may now be focused on the new Galaxy Note 7, Galaxy S7 Edge the standard Galaxy S7, Samsung has not given up on this 2014 phablet.
Just so as to ensure that the device remains in the best shape possible as far as performance is concerned, the tech giant has been keeping tabs on the phone by rolling out monthly security updates to take care of bugs that crop up every now and then. The latest version to be rolled out comes with this month’s Android security patch, but it is currently limited to unlocked models.
It gets even more disappointing as Samsung has only opened up the rollout process for those in Europe. But with the process underway, expect to receive the same update on your Samsung Galaxy Note 4 very soon. According to Samsung, this update packs a series of optimizations and fixes, with the latter most notably coming in to take care of the three major QuadRooter issues.
The updated Galaxy Note 4 will now sport firmware version XXS1DPH1, which not only includes Google’s security updates, but also others from Samsung, which are highlighted on the company’s blog. One huge flaw that the update fixes on the Galaxy Note 4 is one that could allow the installation of malware whenever SideSync app is enabled before Setup Wizard.
The update will hit your Galaxy Note 4 as an OTA, which means not all units will receive the update at once. Given that it is only rolling out in Europe at the moment, those in other areas who wish to check for the availability of the firmware manually can go to the phone’s Settings>About phone>Software update>Check for updates. This will let you manually download and install the new software on your Note 4.
