Galaxy S7 gets another security update (September 2019)

Samsung’s software support for the Galaxy S7 continues to impress us, as the company has released yet another security update for its 2016 flagship. The September security update is rolling out for the Galaxy S7 in Puerto Rico and Uruguay right now, with software version G930FXXS6ESI5 in tow. The Galaxy S7 edge doesn’t seem to have joined the party just yet, but it shouldn’t be long before the curvier Galaxy S7 gets the update as well.

The Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge have been in and out of Samsung’s quarterly schedule for security updates in the last few months. Earlier this year, the company had surprised us by keeping the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge on a quarterly schedule even after the devices crossed three years on the market, only to dump them in the “other regular security updates” category a couple of months later, meaning they would get updates only when necessary.

That didn’t last long and both phones are back to getting security updates every three months. Of course, just being in the quarterly schedule doesn’t guarantee that a device will get updates in every market, but it’s still a good show of support from Samsung. The September update is likely to remain limited to a few countries, and the next update that comes out for the S7 and S7 edge will similarly be rolled out only in some countries.

In any case, Galaxy S7 owners in Puerto Rico and Uruguay can download the new update over the air by tapping the Download updates manually option in the Settings » Software update menu on their phone. Alternatively, they can download the latest firmware from our firmware archive and flash it on their phone using a Windows PC.
