It has been another busy week for the most popular Android OEM in the world, rolling out dozens of updates. After releasing the September security patch from Google which finally fixes the QuadRooter vulnerability for good, Samsung is moving on to other devices. The latest batch of Samsung firmware updates is out this week, for a plethora of devices in its line-up. While most of these updates are regulatory and bring nothing more than bug fixes and optimizations, there are some exceptions. Samsung firmware updates for Galaxy A3 in regions such as Singapore and Italy is finally bringing Android 6.0 Marshmallow. While the Marshmallow update for Galaxy A5 has been out for a month, it is finally reaching regions like Uruguay.
