Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge Nougat-based February Android Security Patch starts rolling out

Samsung Galaxy S8 vs Galaxy S7

Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are the only phones from Samsung that are currently installed with the latest Android 7.0 Nougat OS.

The update started rolling out last month and back then, it came in with January’s Android security patch. But in a new update that is already rolling out as at the time of this writing, the South Korean tech giant is pushing out the latest Android security patch for the month of February to both Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge.

Those using the standard Samsung Galaxy S7 are getting their software version updated to G930FXXU1DQB7 while the curved Galaxy S7 Edge is receiving version G935FXXU1DQB7. This update follows the release of the same security update to the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge as well as a bunch of other midrangers from the Galaxy A and Galaxy J series.

As usual with monthly security updates, Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge users should also expect performance and stability improvements. Since it is coming in as an OTA, it won’t hit all devices at the same time. But you can get it by going to the Settings>About phone>System updates, however, this channel doesn’t guarantee you the update.
