Samsung Galaxy Note5 and S6 variants on Verizon getting security update

The Verizon models of some of the Samsung’s newest flagship smartphones – including the Galaxy Note5 and Galaxy S6, S6 edge, as well as S6 edge+ – are receiving a new update.

While there isn’t much detail on what exactly the update brings (the change-list for all the devices just mentions Android security patches), it does come shortly after Samsung promised regular (about once per month) security updates for its devices in the wake of Stagefright.

The update is currently rolling out, and should hit your device soon (if it hasn’t already). Meanwhile, you can also manually check for it by heading to Settings > About device > Software update on your phone.
