Samsung may have already detailed the contents on the February security update a week ago, but the update is taking longer than usual. While the current flagship devices, Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are yet to receive the security update, low-tier Galaxy devices like the Galaxy J5 Prime and Galaxy J7 Prime are already receiving the update.

If you are among the Galaxy J5 Prime and J7 Prime users, expect OTA updates with build numbers G610FDDU1AQA2 and G570MUBU1AQA3 head your way. The update is currently rolling out across the Indian subcontinent and is expected to bring no significant improvement or new features to the devices.

T-Mobile releases February security update for Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Tab 3

Apart from the Galaxy J5 Prime and J7 Prime, two relatively old Galaxy devices – Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Tab 3 are the first ones to receive the February security update. While still running on Android 4.4 KitKat, T-Mobile continues to support the two devices even after more than 4 years of being released.

However, the Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Tab 3 will never see an official major software update ever. Since the last update that these two devices received was almost 2 years ago, there is good chance that the February security update could be a parting gift from T-Mobile.

If you own a Galaxy Tab 3 or a Galaxy S4 device with T-Mobile, expect an OTA update carrying firmware versions M919UVSFQA1 and T217TUVSBQA1 to hit your devices soon. You can also go ahead and check for the update manually through Settings->About phone->Software update->Check for updates.
