Galaxy A5 (2017) and Galaxy A7 (2017) now receiving June security patch in India

Samsung has started rolling out this month’s security update, which transports 96 fixes for Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) in the Android operating system and 23 patches for Galaxy-branded smartphones, for the Galaxy A5 (2017) and Galaxy A7 (2017) in India.

For those who haven’t been following SamMobile closely over the course of the past few days, the June Security Maintenance Release (SMR) arrived on the Galaxy J5 (2017), Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge earlier today, and started making its way to the Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ at the start of the week.

If you own a Galaxy A5 (2017) or Galaxy A7 (2017), are feeling impatient and want to check to see if the upgrade is ready for your handset, open up Settings, tap Software Update, then hit Download Updates Manually. You shouldn’t need to follow these steps though, as you’ll receive an alert when the OTA is available.
