T-Mobile Galaxy Note 5 September Security Patch Update N920TUVS4DPH2

T-Mobile Galaxy Note 5 will start to receive the September security patch update starting today until the next couple of days.  The update will bump up the Android Marshmallow OS to build version  N920TUVS4DPH2 from previous build N920TUVU3DPG1.  Noting that the latter haven't received the security patch update last month, so this update covers both August and September months security patches.

The size of this update weighs at around 67 MB in size. So you cannot expect any major changes or either new features from the said update considering  that this update is too small.
