Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge get a minor update in India

Home / News / Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge get a minor update in India

Samsung recently updated the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge in India with the security patches for the month of November, and the company is now following it up with a new update. A 12 MB update has started rolling out to both handsets in the country today – it’s one of the smallest updates we have seen for either device, and Samsung makes no mention of the changes it brings.

The Android security patch level is still at December 1, so it looks like this update could be for fixing a few bugs that might have gotten through in the last update. In any case, it’s available for download over the air, so go ahead and hit the Download updates manually button in the Settings » About device menu to grab the latest software for your Galaxy S7/Galaxy S7 edge.

I received this update on my S7e with UK firmware (BTU) and shortly after my phone started rebooting on it’s own… I’ve tried resetting the cache, doing a factory reset from the phone’s settings and also through recovery mode but it continues restarting by itself at random times (it always seems to be triggered by WiFi downloads through the Play Store, for some reason. The sad part is that I revered to the old firmware I had installed through Odin and I’m having the exact same problem there… I’ll probably have to take my phone to my local carrier for… Read more »

This is because in India already came a version of the December update before (G935FXXU1BPL2) and this didn’t came in the Netherlands, that’s because your update is now so large.
