The Galaxy A5 (2016) has started to get a new update from Samsung, and with the size on this newbie, we doubt if it brings much on board. The new update arrives the device with a firmware version of XXS3BPLA and comes in at a size of under 11MB.
From what we have heard, this would pack on board the security fixes for the month of December. Even though the month is nearly over, and this means that the same unit could be getting the security fix for January late, we will take comfort in the saying of “better late than never”
The update is currently being rolled out in Europe, and we expect it to hit other markets where the device was launched soon. If you have yours registered to a carrier network, you would have to look towards your carrier for the time when you’ll be getting yours. As with all OTA updates, this might take a while before it starts to hit your device so we advise that you sit tight and get ready to press that update soft button.
