Samsung brings March security update for Android to Galaxy S5 in Europe

Samsung released the Galaxy S5 just under three years ago, but the ageing flagship is now being brought up to date with the latest security patches from Google.

The new security update has been spotted on the S5 in several European countries and is roughly 68MB in size. Google released the March security update three weeks ago, bringing patches and fixes for dozens of vulnerabilities and other issues in Android.

Last week, the company published its Android Security Year in Review report for 2016, in which it acknowledged that half of all Android devices in use last year didn't receive a single security update. It said that it was working closely with its manufacturer and carrier partners to improve that state of affairs.

However, given the age of the Galaxy S5, it seems unlikely that Samsung will continue to support it with many more security updates beyond this one.
