Verizon Wireless is rolling out OTA updates to Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ and the LG G Pad 7.0 LTE tablet as at the time of this writing.
The update brings the latest Android security patch for the month of February to both devices. Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ users can expect to receive a software update with version number G928VVRS3BQB1 and since it’s coming in over the air, the process will be gradual. It means that not all devices will be able to receive the OTA updates at the same time.
Many Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ users are expecting to receive the latest Android 7.0 Nougat very soon, but the time is not now. This small update only comes with a few system performance enhancements as well as bug fixes to issues in the previous build version.
As for the LG G Pad 7.0 LTE, the story is not different, with the update coming with build number VK41025A. However, unlike Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ where the latest February Android security patch is based on Android Marshmallow, the LG G Pad 7.0 LTE is still running on the older Android Lollipop. The tablet was unveiled in 2014 and as such, don’t expect any other major software update to come its way, if Marshmallow hasn’t done so already.
As for Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+, it was unveiled in 2015 alongside the Galaxy Note 5 and as such, it still qualifies for one last update, but the specific date as to when this will be happening is not yet known. In case you own either of these two devices and the February Android security patch OTA notification has not come your way, there’s room to go the manual way. This includes heading to Settings>About device>System updates and then proceed by checking for updates.
Both devices are also expected to be updated with the upcoming March Android security patch, which should be available starting this week, but as usual, it’ll start with Google devices.
