Samsung is already rolling out the February 2024 security patch, but many Galaxy devices have yet to receive last month’s security patch. So now, the company has released the January 2024 security patch update to a few devices, including the Galaxy M13 5G and Galaxy M31s.
The latest update for Galaxy M13 5G is tagged with the firmware version M136BXXS6DXA1, and that for the Galaxy M31s comes with the firmware version M317FXXS5DXA1. It’s a minor update that’s currently rolling out in India and has a download size of just under 200MB.
The January 2024 security patch for Galaxy phones resolves around 70 vulnerabilities found in the previous software version. It also includes fixes related to the notifications service, Samsung DeX, My Files, and Bluetooth pairing.
Besides these vulnerability fixes, the update could also bring system stability improvements and fixes to known issues.
If you have a Galaxy M13 5G or Galax M31s, check if an update is available to download. To do that, go to Settings > Software update and tap Download and install.
