Galaxy S7 and S7 edge December security patch update is rolling out

The latest Android security fixes are now making their way to the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge in a few countries. In North America, it’s Verizon that’s rolling out an update to both the S7 and S7 edge, becoming the first carrier yet again to release the newest security patch for one of Samsung’s smartphones. Germany, meanwhile, is where the international unlocked model has been updated, with more regions no doubt on track for getting the same update in the coming days.

December security patch isn’t taking too long to reach Samsung phones

Is the December security patch rolling out for various Galaxy devices faster than the ones before it? It sure it, and as we’ve said before, it probably has to do with the fact that the December patch doesn’t include security flaws as significant as the ones that were fixed in the October and November patches. Samsung is probably in course correction mode as well, evident by the fact that flagships like the Galaxy Note 8 are getting back on track in terms of software updates.

To see if the new update is available on your S7 or S7 edge, head into the phone’s settings, tap Software update, then tap Download updates manually. We have the full firmware files for the latest build in our database, which you can use to update through a PC. And, well, if you aren’t in a hurry, just leave the phone be and wait for a notification for the update to show up on its own.

Have you received the December security patch update on your Galaxy S7 or S7 edge?

I am in Dubai and my UAE S7 Edge is still Exynos 8890 SM-G935FD is still on the October 1, 2017 security patch. Tried to update manually but says “the latest updates have already been installed”. Why it’s like this?

I am looking for the AT&T firmware update since it’s not being sent over-the-air from AT&T. The latest OTA update came to me in August.

I am determined to not update my S7 edge. (Since First 7.0 update). After about 3 security patches on my S7 edge with the Android Marshmellow phone’s battery was really bad and phone heated about 1.5 compared to initial 6. versions. I can see battery degredation, Im not a biased or fanboy person so I think Sony’s batteries ages a lot slower compared Samsungs, but Sony puts funny amount of battery onto their phones, that’s another story. Today I am happy with the S7 edge. Perfoemance is good but there is some degredation about 10%, battery(compared to initial software) 15%… Read more »

I’m stuck on the August 2017 patch right now. There are security patches, so it’s probably a good idea to update. I updated it manually once and then got an over the air update from AT&T, but for some reason I never got another one. I’ll have to do it manually again…
