Samsung is rolling out a long-awaited maintenance update for Galaxy Note Edge devices. The update is hitting unlocked models in Europe.
The firmware is similar to the one that Samsung released for the Note 4 last month for users in Europe, with an array of bug fixes and stability improvements. Other key elements of the firmware for Note Edge are battery optimisation, improvement over performance through RAM management and enhancements for core features.
The firmware also bundles October security update, which includes patches from both Google and Samsung. Along with Google's patches, Samsung has addressed as many as seven vulnerabilities. Although, Samsung has not provided details about all the Samsung Vulnerabilities and Exposures (SVE) elements, a couple of items listed in its Android Security Updates page suggest they pose medium risk.
The firmware is likely to be the last maintenance update for the Note Edge as the handset is nearing the end of the two- year support period offered by Samsung, reports Sammobile. If you belong to the firmware-supported region, keep checking for the new firmware, which is available as an over-the-air update.
Upon installation of the update, you should notice the build version of the handset has increased to XXU1DPJ1. To get the update manually, go to Settings>> About phone>> Download updates manually.
