December security update starts hitting Samsung Galaxy A5 (2016)

Himanshu, 31 December 2016

Samsung has started pushing out a new security update to its Galaxy A5 (2016) smartphone. Weighing in at under 11MB and arriving as firmware version XXS3BPLA, the update brings along Android security patches for the month of December.

The update is currently hitting units in Europe, although other regions should get it soon as well.

If you are a Galaxy A5 (2016) user in Europe, and haven't received the update yet, be patient, as OTA toll outs are usually staged. Alternatively, you can also check for the update by heading to your handset's Settings menu.
