August security update now reaching the Galaxy S7 in the Netherlands
Samsung has released this month’s security maintenance update for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge in the Netherlands. The upgrade, which weighs in at approximately 23MB, transports patches for 50 vulnerabilities in the open-source Android operating system and 12 within the company’s own firmware, as well as a handful of other miscellaneous bug fixes.
If you own a Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 edge and would like to check to see if the update is available for your unit, open up Settings, select Software Update, then tap Download Updates Manually. You don’t have to, though. You can always wait until you receive a notification prompting you to download and install the OTA—but it could take a little longer to arrive.
Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ review: Samsung brings us the future, but it’s not perfect yet
Now that the upgrade is making the rounds for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge in the Netherlands, it shouldn’t be too much longer until it arrives on the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ in the region. But we can’t fathom why Samsung has put its former flagships first, when an identical release is already being distributed for the latest models in a number of other countries.Via
