Verizon outs January security updates for Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy Note Edge and Galaxy S5

Verizon is keeping up with Android security patches by updating some of Samsung's older high-end devices – the Galaxy Note 4, the Galaxy Note Edge, and the Galaxy S5. Owners of these handsets on Verizon's network should be receiving the MMB29M.N910VVRS2CQA1 (Note 4), MMB29M.N915VVRS2CQA1 (Note Edge) and MMB29M.G900VVRS2DQA1 (S5) firmwares.

The security patches contain fixes for 67 Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) in Android, along with 28 security patches for the Galaxy phones. You can read about the latter in full detail at Samsung's Mobile Security Blog.

To update, make sure your device is connected to a Wi-Fi network or has good data signal, and has its battery charged up. The updates weigh in at around 30MB.

Even if it's not the latest version of android it is nice to see VZW at least maintain the security patches.

+1

The GS5 is approaching 3 years old and the Note 4 and Edge are close to 2.5 years old. Nice to see some phones getting security updates longer into their lifespans.
