Following the release of the November security update for Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge by T-Mobile, the latest device to receive a security update is Galaxy A5. However, the new update brings more than just that, as a Galaxy A5 critical flaw has been patched along with the November security update.While the changelog that has been reported by users does state that there is a patch for a “critical flaw”, nothing more is mentioned thereof. However, the relatively large OTA file size of 128MB rolling out for Galaxy A5 2016 version does hint towards something important.Samsung is yet to even detail the inclusions that will come to its long line of Galaxy devices with the December security update. Hence, you should not expect another security update after the Galaxy A5 critical flaw update anytime soon.The update is currently rolling across continental Europe and should cross over to other regions in the coming days. To manually check for the latest update, you can head over to Settings->About phone->Software update->Check for updates.However, if you are among the unfortunate who haven’t received the latest updates despite the same being released in other regions, there is a way around it.
