Samsung has improved a lot over the years in supporting its smartphones and tablets with the latest software updates. The company promised three major Android OS updates for its high-end and some mid-range smartphones last year. It also pledged to release security updates for four years to its Galaxy devices. Now, the company has updated a three-year-old smartphone with a new security patch.

The Galaxy A6+ has started getting a new software update in Mexico. It comes with firmware version A605GNUBU8CUI1 and includes the September 2021 security patch. Samsung had mentioned last month that the September 2021 patch fixes more than 40 vulnerabilities related to privacy and security. The update could also include some bug fixes and device stability improvements.

This new update could expand to more markets in the coming weeks. If you are a Galaxy A6+ user in Mexico and haven’t received this update yet, you can check for it manually by navigating to Settings » Software update and tapping on Download and install. You can also download the latest firmware file from our firmware database and flash it manually using a Windows computer.

Samsung had launched the Galaxy A6+ in mid-2018 with Android 8.0 Oreo on board. The device received the Android 9-based One UI update in 2019 and the Android 10-based One UI 2.0 update in 2020.
