T-Mobile Galaxy Note 5, S6 edge+ receiving security-focused updates

Days after the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge began receiving software updates, it’s time for the Galaxy Note 5 and S6 edge+ to get updates of their own.

T-Mobile has announced updates for both its Note 5 and its S6 edge+. The changelogs for the two updates are the same, touting the June and July security patches, Google security fixes, and “various system improvements.”

The Galaxy Note 5’s update bumps the phone to baseband version N920TUVU3DPG1, while the Galaxy S6 edge+’s update will bring the phone to baseband version G928TUVU3DPG1.

Security improvements are always welcome, and it’s good to see that these updates include the latest July security patches rather than only the June fixes. If you’ve got a Note 5 or S6 edge+ and haven’t yet updated, you can check for your update manually by opening your Settings app, tapping “About device,” and then selecting “Software update.”

Thanks, Jean Carlos!

    Just loaded it….so far phone seems smoother. Could be because it rebuilds the AppCache right after the update.

    Phone does feel a little….zippier.

      I would agree, my LTE speeds in particular have been abnormally fast, but that could just be the time of day, I’ll see what happens later tonight when LTE speeds on T-mobile tend to drop a bit in my area (Nothing bad, but noticeable in my area)
      or it could be a modem update if their is one in this update.
