Samsung Details May Android Security Patch Bulletin ahead of Release

Samsung May Android Security Update

Just after Google Pixel and Nexus devices started getting the new Android security update for the month of May, Samsung has just confirmed that the likes of Galaxy S8, Galaxy S7, Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 devices will also be joining the party really soon.

The South Korean tech giant has just updated its official website with details of what the upcoming May Android security patch brings to the array of Samsung Galaxy phones that will receive the update. Of course, the update will come to more than just the few flagship devices the tech giant has in the market, but also to the likes of Samsung Galaxy A, Galaxy C, Galaxy J as well as a series of Galaxy tablets.

In addition to carrying the latest monthly security patch, Samsung has also included a bunch of bug fixes as well as stability and performance enhancements. Apparently, this is a crucial update for all eligible Sammy devices as it comes with patches for up to 11 security vulnerabilities identified by the Korean company as well as Google’s own fixes.

As expected, the unlocked variants will be the first to receive the update and later on followed by the carrier versions. In total, this month’s Android security update comes with patches for up to 14 vulnerabilities and exposures labeled as “critical”, 25 labeled as “high”, 14 labeled as “moderate” and a single vulnerability labeled as “low.”

At the moment, we don’t have dates as to when this update will start rolling out, but it shouldn’t be long before the likes of Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S7 start receiving the OTA notifications to download the security patch.
