Galaxy S7 edge August 2018 security patch update rolling out

Another flagship Galaxy phone is now being updated with the August 2018 security patch. The Galaxy S7 edge is on the receiving end this time around, with an update for the device rolling out in Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, and Ukraine. The update brings software version G935FXXU2ERH1 and is the first software update after Oreo for the Galaxy S7 edge in these markets.

August 2018 security patch release for the Galaxy S7 edge

The Galaxy S7 doesn’t seem to have received the update yet, but that shouldn’t be the case for long. As far as the changelog is concerned, it could be similar to the August update for other flagships and include a point about Samsung’s Game Launcher services. Game Launcher hasn’t received new functionality or changes to existing ones, and we’re guessing Samsung is only mentioning it in the update because of the recent release of Fortnite for Android. The update could also include fixes and improvements for issues discovered in the first Oreo release.

Own a Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 edge? Open the Settings app on the phone, tap Software update, then tap Download updates manually to see if a new update is available for you.

En Perú el S7 edge sigue en 7.0 y el último parche de seguridad es de Febrero de este año. Realmente vergonzoso. En lo que a mi respecta, nunca más otro Samsung y corre de mi cuenta alertar a todos los que pueda, eviten comprar Samsung.

After April Security Patch i just got July update.
I guess we need regular updates. S7 is still at its best.
We deserve Android P.

I haven’t got this update. But after 3 oreo version on S7 edge, there’s still battery drain, some animations are not happen as solid as nougat, more heating and more deşay on Chrome and Internet browser. I hope this August update resolbe these issues but I’m really low on hope. I will try to return Nougat. They really nose dived S7 series after S9 with Oreo. I got 2.5 hours of Screen on time on Mobile data. Which is still bad if you consider 2013 standarts. Shame man. Device idle battery drain.

Did you try to factory reset? Oreo runs a lot smoother and faster for 99% of the users compared to nougat. Battery life is better too, standby exceptional (around 0.5%/h, when sleeping even goes to 0.3%/h a lot of days and never exceeds 0.5%). Chrome is general NO for samsung devices, samsung’s own internet browsers runs tons smoother. Most likely you need to reset or you have an app that goes rogue leading to the issues you have.

I have already factory done factory reset. I don’t like to say it thay way but I’m very experienced and advanced user. Try tab switch animation on Samsung browser especailly when you open new tabs. You still can’t open more than 50 tabs. It consumes way less battery but some not very popular sites which I use for work runs only on chrome. Oh and nearby scanning, bluethooth, NFC and many other things are swithed off. Connectivity is very good in my city. Sorry but many of the users are having battery drian problems on not just S7 and s7… Read more »
