Support for the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy Note 5 series ended a few years ago, and given their age, most users are probably upgraded by now. But that hasn’t stopped Samsung from introducing new firmware updates for these devices, extending their life a bit longer.
SamMobile on Tuesday said that Samsung is starting to release firmware updates for Galaxy Note 5 (firmware version N920SKSS2DTJ2) and Galaxy S6 (firmware versions firmware versions G92xSKSS3ETJ1 and G928SKSS3DTJ3). The initial distribution took place in South Korea, with wider distribution occurring in Europe and Latin America.
SamMobile said the list of changes mentioned the inclusion of a security-related stabilization code. However, the devices will continue to run on top of Android 7.0 Nougat and the security patch from September 201
This isn’t the first time Samsung has unveiled a surprising update to the Galaxy S6. Early last year, the company released a January 2019 security update for the Galaxy S6 series variants in the UAE, after a seemingly vulnerability was discovered.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 series and Galaxy Note 5 were released in 2015 and since then we have seen several new flagship devices from Samsung. Meanwhile, Google is now up to Android 11, so the market has progressed a lot since these devices were introduced. Probably most hard Samsung fans have upgraded their device in the last two years. But in case you haven’t, your old phone will live a little longer with the new firmware update.
