The June 2018 security patch for Google Android 7.0 Nougat has been rolled out for Galaxy Note5 devices in the Philippines. This patch will bring several fixes and improvements, including those that specifically affect Samsung devices.
In its monthly Android Security Update, Samsung identified three Samsung Vulnerabilities and Exposures (SVE) that uniquely affect Samsung devices powered by Android 6.0 Marshmallow, 7.0 Nougat, and the latest 8.0 Oreo.
Two of these vulnerabilities were listed as critical. One was a buffer overflow and the other a keymaster design flaw, and both affect devices running with Android 7.0.Advertisement
The latest update also includes security patches from Google that will fix at least five critical vulnerabilities, namely, CVE-2018-3580, CVE-2018-9341, CVE-2018-5146, CVE-2018-9355, and CVE-2018-9356, according to Samsung.
You should be able to receive a notification that said your Note5 phone is ready for an update. Otherwise, you can manually upgrade by going to Settings >>> Software update >>> Download updates manually.
The June 2018 patch weighs just 26.59MB and bears version N920CXXS4CRF7/N920COJV4CRB3/N920CXXU4CRB2. This wouldn’t take you long to complete the installation.
Now as far as the news about an Android 8.0 Oreo upgrade for the Galaxy Note5 is concerned, nothing has been set in stone yet, except for some alleged screenshots and confirmation coming from mobile telecommunications company, T-Mobile.> RELATED: Google sends out survey for Pixel 2
Based on a screenshot of a support page from the U.S. firm, it was stated that “T-Mobile and the device manufacturer have agreed to support a new software update,” which is Android 8.0, for the Note5, TheAndroidSoul reported. And it’s obvious who the device manufacturer is: S-A-M-S-U-N-G.
What is more, the development phase for the Android Oreo update was said to be complete. No more homework!
While this is good news, the problem is that this was still in February, and we’re now approaching the fifth month. No word has also come out from the digital wild that a Galaxy Note5 has really received the Android 8.0 or an official statement on the update’s specific release window.
But that said, we wouldn’t say ahead that these rumors will turn out to be complete fallacy because, who knows, Samsung might really open the floodgates of Android Oreo when they release their next phablet flagship, the Galaxy Note9. Besides, this was taken from a support page.
It’s not only the Galaxy Note5 that is going to receive Android 8.0 goodies. Samsung has also allegedly agreed to give the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge an upgrade, too. So, we’re crossing our fingers.
