Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 edge start receiving September 2020 security patch


Last updated: October 28th, 2020 at 05:24 UTC+02:00

Samsung has upped its game when it comes to rolling out software updates to its smartphones and tablets. The company has started rolling out a new software update to the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge, which were released close to five years ago, and the updates bring along a new security patch.

The Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge have started receiving the September 2020 security patch. The updates are currently rolling out in Canada and the UK. The download size of the updates is around 70MB, and they carry the firmware versions G930W8VLS8CTI1 or G935W8VLS8CTI1, depending on whether you are using the Galaxy S7 or the Galaxy S7 edge. Firmware versions for the UK variants of the smartphones are G930FXXU8ETI2 and G935FXXU8ETI2. The new software updates also improve device stability, fixes some bugs, and improves performance.

It is impressive to see that Samsung is updating smartphones that it launched close to five years ago. It must be a critical update, which is why the South Korean smartphone giant has decided to roll out the update even after it decided to stop updating the Galaxy S7 series earlier this year. The new software update could roll out to other markets soon.

If your Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 edge hasn’t received the update, you can manually check for it by navigating to Settings » Software update and tapping Download and install on the phone. Alternatively, you can also download the new firmware from our firmware section and flash it manually.
