T-Mobile releases May security patch for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge
Just a few days after it started rolling out the May 2017 security patch for the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge+, T-Mobile has now released said security patch for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge. The company went ahead with the release on a holiday weekend in the United States so it may come as a bit of a surprise to users.
Since these devices have already been updated to Android 7.0 Nougat by T-Mobile, it’s not like users will get much in the way of new features. This update only brings the May 2017 security patch alongside system-wide tweaks and improvements.
T-Mobile is rolling out firmware version G930TUVS4BQE1 for the Galaxy S7 and G935TUVS4BQE1 for the Galaxy S7 edge. Once the update is installed, users will see that their devices are on the May 1, 2017 Android security patch level.
The May security patch for Samsung devices fixes 54 Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) in the Android OS and also brings fixes for 11 vulnerabilities found in Samsung’s own software.
T-Mobile is rolling out the update over-the-air for Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge owners in the United States. The relevant firmware files are also available for download from our firmware section for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge.
