Verizon brings April security patch for Android to Samsung Galaxy Note5 and Galaxy S6 edge+

A couple of weeks ago, Verizon finally began upgrading Samsung's Galaxy Note5 and Galaxy S6 edge+ to Android 7.0 Nougat, eight months after that version of the OS was released by Google. Now, the carrier is updating both handsets with a new set of Android security patches.

The latest firmware bumps the Note5 up to build number N920VVRS3CQD1, while the Galaxy S6 edge+ will see its build number rise to G928VVRS3CQD1.

The update brings the April security patches for Android, which includes fixes for dozens of vulnerabilities and other issues in the OS, along with some patches specific to Samsung's Galaxy devices. As The Android Soul reports, the update also includes unspecified "bug fixes and system improvements".

While Verizon is only now bringing the April security update to these handsets, Google has already released the newest May security patches.
