Samsung One UI 6: A Deep Dive into the Latest Features and Enhancements

In the November 2023 security patch, Samsung has included a new page in its official documentation. With this update, the company has introduced almost 54 fixes to bolster the security of Galaxy devices. These fixes are designed to make Galaxy devices more secure and protect them from potential vulnerabilities.

In the upcoming security update from Samsung, there will be a total of 49 fixes provided by Google and an additional 15 fixes implemented by Samsung. Here are the details of the CVE codes for the vulnerabilities that have been addressed:

Critical risk:

CVE-2023-24855, CVE-2023-28540, CVE-2023-33028, CVE-2023-4863, CVE-2023-40113.

So, in this case, these security fixes include both the updates made directly by Google in the Android operating system and the additional ones that Samsung included in the November patches. Samsung’s added fixes aim to address critical issues that could potentially allow malicious individuals to do things like install a different version of an app on a device, perform harmful actions from a remote location, and access the serial number of the CPU. These measures are essential for protecting users and their devices from potential threats.

One UI 6.0 Is About To Knock Galaxy Device Software Version

Samsung has already rolled out the November 2023 update for Galaxy S23 smartphones. However, at the moment, it’s only available for Android 14 users and certain devices that are running the One UI 6 beta version. The company plans to gradually make the update available to more smartphone users in the coming days. The release pattern is not fixed, so it could become available to any eligible smartphone, regardless of its price range or regional availability.

For devices that may not be eligible for major updates anymore, the security patch update might also include some improvements to enhance the device’s performance and functionality. This is good news for users who want to keep their devices secure and running smoothly, even if they are no longer receiving major software updates.

Last week, Samsung introduced the latest June 2024 security patch to many popular devices belonging to the flagship and midrange categories. Now the company has started expanding the update to budget-friendly devices, including the Galaxy M15 and Galaxy F15.

Notably, the Galaxy M15 device is spotted reviving the June 2024 security patch in India and Europe with the firmware version numbers M156BXXS2AXF3 and M156BXXS2AXF2, respectively. Meanwhile, the Galaxy F15 has received an update in India with the firmware version number E156BXXS2AXF1. 

The June 2024 security patch update is one of the normal device maintenance software updates that doesn’t bring any surprising features or major improvements, but it will provide some internal changes that will not provide direct benefit to the user but will provide indirect advantages as the device will get more protected against external threats. 

According to the official changelog, it doesn’t specify any important changes for the device, so we can assume that the update will only make some internal changes that will improve the system’s security and stability.

If you are using the Galaxy F15 and Galaxy M15 devices in the above-mentioned reaction, then you can now update your devices to the latest version just by going to the software update menu via system settings. If the new update hasn’t arrived for your device yet, then you have to wait a few more hours, as it may take some time to reach every unit.
