Verizon has just dropped a new software update today for the Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 edge+. The Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ are each getting software version VRU2BPD4, which does indeed include the latest Android security patches.
The Galaxy Note 5 also gets a fix for the false “no SIM card detected” error message and it improves audio routing for incoming video and voice calls. Users can now answer video calls as just a voice call on both handsets once they’ve been updated to the firmware, and when they do, the call audio will be routed to the earpiece by default.
If you do happen to download the update, let us know how you get on with it via the comments.
