June security patch for the Galaxy S7 released in India

Galaxy S7 owners in India should keep an eye out for a new firmware update today. They will soon receive an over-the-air update notification if they haven’t already. The update that Samsung is rolling out for the Galaxy S7 in the country today brings the June security patch.

It’s an incremental update for the handset in that it doesn’t bring much in the way of new features for the handset. All it does is update the security patch level on the handset to June 2017.

Samsung detailed the June security patch a couple of weeks back. It brings 96 fixes for Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) in the core Android operating system. The patch also brings fixes for 23 additional vulnerabilities found in Samsung’s own software.

Users shouldn’t expect to find any new features on their handset after they’ve installed the update, then again, the Galaxy S7 is already running on Android 7.0 Nougat so they already have access to all of the latest features.

Those who haven’t already received an over-the-air update notification on their Galaxy S7 in India should head over to the Settings menu and try to manually download the update from the Software Update section. The notification should land on their handset automatically in the near future.

Took back to the Samsung service centre and they told to come after 4rth July as there is GST issue running currently they cannot login to thier server and they told me that coz of the patch the OS got corrupted. Then I ended up doing hard reset by going into recovery mode with my own risk after 15 to 20 mins my phone booted up. So… Read more »

Sweden too, just installed a 268 MB update giving my unlocked S7 edge June 1st security patch. However the article writer must have forgot that several other manufacturers have updated their phones to Android 7.1.1 which is the latest version. As always these days Samsung is unfortunately among the slowest to update to the latest Android version.
