Samsung’s first handset to receive the latest patches neither S8 nor Note8. Instead, for the third time in a row, Samsung has chosen the mid-range (and quite old by mobile world standards) Galaxy A5 (2016) for that role.
The December update is already out for this device in the Netherlands – if you bought yours unlocked and unbranded.
These are devices that were not purchased from a provider. If your device can download it, it will start automatically with it. Of course you can also check yourself if you go to Software Update via Settings . Then tap Download updates manually , and your phone will immediately look for the update.
If you have an A5 (2016) and got the update notification, expect a 196MB download. After installing the new software, you’ll be on build A510FXXU4CQL1 and the December 1 security patch level.
