Samsung Galaxy A3 (2016) gets November security update

Vlad, 21 November 2016

Samsung has started pushing the November security update to another of its devices. Last week we saw the Galaxy A5 (2016) getting the latest security patches, and today it's the Galaxy A3 (2016)'s turn to have the exact same fate.

The update has started rolling out in Europe to A3 (2016) units that have been sold unlocked and unbranded. It's unclear when carrier-specific models are to expect the update to arrive on them.

The new firmware version is XXU2BPK2. It brings with it 60 different security fixes from Google, as well as 14 Samsung-specific software improvements. As always, if you haven't received the update notification yet, you can head over to Settings > About Device > Software Update and tap the Update Now option - you might just get lucky. If not, all you can do is wait, since the rollout is staged as usual.
