It is the season of updates and every day we are seeing some or the other company releasing an update be it march security update patch or the Android 7.0 Nougat update to the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 or the Android 7.1.1 Nougat update to the ZTE Axon 7, this time we have got one familiar company which is not so familiar on providing fast updates to its phones but this time, its quite different. Samsung has started to update all its phones to the latest March Security Update as soon as possible after Google released it on March 1, 2017.
Now Samsung has turned its attention towards three more devices- Galaxy J5 2016, J2 Prime and Galaxy C5. These three smartphones are receiving a new firmware update which installs the latest monthly security patch on them.
Galaxy J2 Prime is receiving the update as build number G532GDDU1AQC2. The update comes with March security patch. The Marshmallow based device got launched in a new market, Bangladesh last month after making its debut in November last year with mid-range specs.
The other Samsung device getting the March security patch update is Galaxy J5 2016 which is being rolled out as build number J510MNUBU2AQC1. On the other hand, the update is hitting out at Galaxy C5 units as build C5000ZCU1AQC1.
Samsung is pushing the new firmware update to the three devices over the air. As such, it might take some time to arrive on your handset. If you want to check for it manually, you can do so. Go to Settings > About device > System update.
Another think to always keep in mind is to get your handsets at least 80 percent charged and connected to a WiFi network before hitting the download button. It would be ideal if the phone is plugged in to a charger and connected to a strong WiFi network while updating.
Samsung is facing many new rivals from the likes of Chinese OEMs like Xiaomi and Lenovo and OnePlus but the one department where Samsung could set itself apart is to provide quality support to its customers.
