Samsung has finally started releasing the July Security Patch update for several flagship smartphones. The OEM has started rolling out an update that is having all of the patches included in this month's security release, as well as a couple of additional bug fixes and stability improvements, for the Galaxy S6 Edge and S6 Edge+ devices in Europe.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge and S6 Edge+ have already reached the end of their two-year support period, so it's great to see that Samsung is still releasing regular maintenance updates for them. However, it is still unknown on how long the tech giant is planning to keep pushing out the update.

The update for the Galaxy S6 Edge is currently rolling out to unlocked units in the Netherlands as build G925FXXS5EQG1. The update is also said to make its way to other European countries soon.

On the other hand, for the Galaxy S6 Edge+ only the Vodafone-branded model is receiving the new update at the moment. The update for this flagship is coming with the new build number being G928FXXS3CQG8, as reported by GSM Arena.

The latest July security update from Samsung includes 65 separate fixes from Google and 16 patches from Samsung for its own software additions on top of Android. As always, it's strongly recommended to apply such updates as soon as possible to your Galaxy S6 Edge and S6 Edge+ devices,  Android Hits reported.

To check to see if the upgrade is ready for your Galaxy S6 Edge and S6 Edge+, open up Settings; tap Software Update, then press Download Updates Manually. Otherwise, the user can wait until he/she receive an alert prompting to download and install the OTA. The Galaxy S7, which comes in between the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S8, has already been upgraded with the July Security Patch level to July couple of days ago.
