It seems Samsung is dead sure to uproot the BlueBorne threat from all of its devices. So, it is pretty much on a scheduled spree of firmware updates to patch the same. Over the previous week, we saw a number of Samsung flagships received security updates to plug holes created by Blueborne. Continuing its effort Samsung yet again rolled out the Blueborne patch update for Galaxy S6 (edge) (plus). The update is now rolling in waves as an OTA(over-the-air) update. The rolling out has been initiated from the Netherlands and will be available elsewhere soon.

This update brings the firmware build number G928FXXU3CQI1 to the European variants of Galaxy S6 (edge) (plus). This update is based on Android 7.0 Nougat. This update is entirely dedicated to patching the ongoing threat of Blueborne vulnerability. You may download the update as OTA or directly download the firmware from Samsung servers and install it manually.
