Samsung Galaxy A8 and Galaxy J5 (2016) get February security patches for Android

The Galaxy S7 and S7 edge are the only devices that Samsung has so far upgraded to Android 7.0 Nougat - but while the wait continues for its other devices to finally be able to move on from Marshmallow, the Korean tech giant is at least keeping many of them up to date with the latest security patches.

Along with the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge, and Galaxy A3 (2016), Samsung has also begun rolling out the February security updates for Android to the Galaxy A8 and Galaxy J5 (2016). The February patches already made their way to the Galaxy J5 Prime and J7 Prime last week.

The new patches are rolling out as over-the-air updates, bumping the A8's build number up to A810FXXU1AQA2, and that of the J5 (2016) to J510MNUBU2AQA5.

But while the updates do include some additional stability fixes and performance improvements for both handsets, don't expect any new features.
