Samsung might not be planning to roll out an update to Android 7.0 Nougat for users of the 2014 Galaxy Note 4, but this doesn’t mean the Korean company has forgotten all about the last true Note.
The phone is now getting a new security patch for the month of August for model number SM-N910F, carrying software version XXS1DQH8 and weighing almost 200MB. This update improves the security of the aging phone as well as adds battery usage optimizations, stability as well as enhanced memory management.
Despite all the additions, the most important thing that Samsung Galaxy Note 4 users should be looking forward is the security patch. For a phone that will no longer be receiving any major OS upgrade, it’s a good thing that Samsung still takes care of it, especially now that the Galaxy Note 8 is here. In the update, you’ll find more than 50 fixes from both Google and Samsung, with 12 of them aimed at Samsung’s own customizations to the OS.
So far, this update is only available in Europe, but it should also hit Galaxy Note 4 devices in other markets as well. Since it’s an OTA update, you don’t have to do anything in order to get it, instead, simply sit back and wait for the notification to download the update. If you can’t wait, you can check for the availability of the update manually through Settings>About phone and download it.
Either way, you end up with a crucial update on your Galaxy Note 4 – an update that’ll ensure you are safe and the device still performs to the best levels possible.
