Galaxy S7 updated with September 2018 security patch
Another flagship Galaxy phone is getting an update with the September 2018 security patch. Samsung has released an update for the Galaxy S7 in the United Kingdom with the latest patch included and with software version G930FXXS3ERHD. You can expect the same update to arrive for the Galaxy S7 edge in the next couple of days.
September security patch released for the Galaxy S7
The September 2018 patch brings fixes for nine critical vulnerabilities in the Android OS and 18 that pose a danger to Samsung’s software. You can expect the improved security to be the only change the new Galaxy S7 update brings to your phone. The Android version is still 8.0, and with two major OS upgrades already released for the Galaxy S7, Android 8.1 or Android 9.0 Pie are unlikely to ever arrive.
