We are almost mid-way into October and came across a lot of firmware updates from Samsung. But there is no sign of latest security patches of October, not even of September security patch.Although firmware updates are mostly of September build and some of October build but security patches goes all the way back to August. Samsung is still rolling firmware for Blueborne vulnerability. Amidst all this, there are also a few Android OS platform updates being rolled out. Currently, Android 7.1.1 Nougat update for AT&T Galaxy Express Prime is rolling.
This update brings the firmware build number to the US variants of the T-mobile Samsung Galaxy Express Prime. The update brings the much expected Android Nougat update. This update weighs 1GB in size. It’s interesting to note that this update is a straight leap to 7.1.1 Nougat. There is no 7.0 Nougat. Apart from OS update, it brings other regular updates and system enhancements. The update is rolling in waves as OTA(over-the-air) update. So, it will take a while for the update to roll into your device. You can also directly download the firmware from Samsung servers. We have a complete tutorial for the same later in this post.
