Following the rolling out of June Android security updates on Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+, Verizon has now turned attention to 2014’s Samsung Galaxy Note 4.
The giant American wireless carrier has been busy with rolling out updates in the recent past. While it still lags behind in the Android Marshmallow bandwagon, the carrier has really stepped up its game with respect Samsung-based devices’ monthly security updates.
The update comes about a week after Samsung made it official for all unlocked variants of the Galaxy Note 4. Google had pushed out the update towards the end of May, with this year’s Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge topping the list of Sammy devices to be updated with the June security patch. Even though it seems a little bit late for Verizon to jump in with an update just days before the July Android security patch is released, it is better late than never.
If you own a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 with model number SM-N910V, Verizon Wireless has already availed an update for you. The new June Android security patch will take the Note 4’s firmware version number to MMB29M.N910VVRU2CPF3, packing it with the most up to date security features. Since the update is rolling out as an OTA, it might take time before reaching out to all Verizon users. If you haven’t seen the OTA notification yet, you have the option of waiting for it to show up, which should be in the next few days or so.
In case you can’t wait, there is an option to check out for the availability of the update manually. This can be done by going to the Settings of your Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and hit the About device option. This will open up another page where you can select “Software update.” If the update is ready, you will see the option to “Update now” appear, otherwise, you may still have to wait for the OTA notification to show up. You can also keep up with these manual checkups just in case the download file is availed for your device.
