Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge users in the UK started receiving Android 7.0 Nougat just last month, but there is a new and essential stability update being rolled out by the company to these two flagships.
According to the latest reports coming from Europe, the tech giant is rolling out a firmware update to the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge and even though it is not very heavy, it has been termed as an essential addition to the stability of the Android Nougat –powered handsets. However, be warned that the update is only rolling out to the unlocked models of the two phones, but the same should also happen with carrier-based models in the coming days.
Those using the flat screen Samsung Galaxy S7 are receiving firmware version G930FXXU1DQB3 while those using the larger Galaxy S7 Edge are already receiving firmware version G935FXXU1DQB3. The update weighs about 100MB and it comes with bug fixes, performance as well as stability improvements. However, this has nothing to do with the latest Android Security Patch for the month of February, which Google started rolling out to the Pixel and Nexus family this week Monday.
Samsung warns that the temperature of your Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge might increase when installing the update, but there is nothing to worry about as this can be expected when downloading OTA files. However, make sure you have enough battery juice in your phone before proceeding with the update, otherwise, keep the phone connected to a power source. If you have a problem with downloading 100MB via cellular data, make sure you connect the phone to a Wi-Fi hotspot before you start the upgrade process.
