Galaxy J3 2016

We have seen a trend from all the smartphone manufacturers from the last month to provide fast updates for the security patches released by Google. Last month we saw all the major brands releasing March security update patch to their phones. Samsung was espescially quick with releasing all its major phone’s updates within 10 days of the release of security patch. This time, Samsung has gone one step further in its speed and has released the April security patch from Google in just 1 day from being released. This update is for the Samsung J3 2016 smartphone based in Europe.

Samsung has started rolling out a new firmware update to Galaxy J3 2016 in Europe. The update brings April security patch and is being rolled out over the air. Arriving as build number J320FXXU0AQC3, the firmware updates the security patch on Galaxy J3 2016 to April 1st, 2017. It also brings in some regular bug fixes and device optimizations. This has been done by Google to ensure that the devices with the April security patch are not encountering a major bug after getting the security patch so a bug-patch is alway accompanied with the security patch.

Samsung has already showcased all the device manufacturers including Chinese companies of its abilities to rollout the update in such a quick time. The interesting thing to see is that which company would come out to compete with Samsung in this department. You can check for the update manually by heading to Settings > About device > System updates if you feel that the update should have arrived on your phone. But before downloading it, ensure that your device is at least 50 percent charged and connected to a WiFi network. This step above is most important to ensure stable process at the time of updating the phone with any updates be it software or security patch.
