Arrow How can I tell what firmware has been downloaded?

I have a notification "software update, firmware downloaded". Can anyone tell me how I find out what the update number is? There have been some bad updates recently and I want to find out what it is before installing it.

First download this App https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...uyen.phoneinfo
To know which version and region you are running. Then following the region and version number look for it in Sammobile.com.

But I want to know the version that had been downloaded, not the version already installed...

If you were rooted, you could probably try to find the file itself with root explorer and then search internet to match your file name with info on what inside, but if you got OTA download you're not and I'm not sure if that file is visible without super user, so you could also go to Samsung side or use Kiev and see what updates are available for your particular phone and compare that to what's on your phone already. I haven't done any OTA updates for a while now, does it show file name right before or during download? Frankly I hate Android, it is such nontransparent OS, it's not easy to even see what files are on your phone.
