T-Mobile’s Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge start getting January Android Security Patch

Samsung S6 and S6 Edge

A day after Google started rolling out the latest Android security patch for the month of February, Samsung went ahead to detail the same security patch for its compatible devices.

In fact, this month’s Android security patch is already rolling out to some Samsung devices, including the Galaxy J7 Prime, but it is only now that T-Mobile has started rolling out last month’s security patch to the 2015 Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. This is not anything unusual as carrier-branded Sammy phones are always among the last to be updated with any software, be it major or minor.

Those using Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge handsets carried by T-Mobile can expect to receive OTA notifications for January’s Android security patch anytime from now. The update comes with software version G920TUVS5EQA2 for the standard Galaxy S6 and G925TUVS5EQA2 for the curved Galaxy S6 Edge. Looking at the size of the update, which is just 30MB, don’t get your hopes too high as far as new features are concerned, instead, this update only comes in with a few bug fixes, stability and performance improvements as well the new security patch level for the month of January.

The T-Mobile update is rolling out over the air and as such, it won’t hit all Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge handsets all at once. Instead, the process will be gradual, so don’t be surprised if you find yourself seated next to a person whose S6 Edge has already received this January Android security patch ahead of you. On the brighter side, the update won’t take long before it comes your way, probably a few days or so. But if you can’t wait, you can always check for the update’s availability manually by heading to either phone’s Settings>About phone.

Given that T-Mobile has just started rolling out January’s Android security patch to Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, don’t expect this month’s update to come anytime soon. In fact, it is possible that the latest version could be rolled out next month, just like it is happening right now with last month’s update, but hopefully, this won’t be the case.
