Galaxy S7 owners in the United Kingdom and Austria can now download an update that brings the February 2019 security patch to the device. The update comes with software version G930FXXS4ESAE and is available over the air and through our firmware database. The same update should be out for the Galaxy S7 edge as well.

The Galaxy S7 is the fourth Samsung flagship to be getting the February patch, following the Galaxy Note 9, Galaxy S9, and the Galaxy Note 8. The update is based on Android Oreo, as expected, and doesn’t bring anything other than the new patch. The February patch includes fixes for five critical and dozens of high and moderate risk Android OS vulnerabilities. As many as 12 Samsung Vulnerabilities and Exposures items have also been fixed with this security patch.

To download the update, open the Settings app on your Galaxy S7, tap Software update, then tap the Download updates manually option. You can also flash the full firmware by downloading it from SamMobile if it isn’t available for you over the air. Do let us know if you’re getting the same update in another country or another Galaxy device by leaving a comment below.
