Samsung Galaxy S7 gets January 2020 security update


Last updated: February 4th, 2020 at 08:44 UTC+02:00

January is already over, and Samsung is already sending the February security update to its devices. But plenty of the company’s smartphones and tablets are still getting the January security update as well, and the latest one to receive is the Galaxy S7. Come March, the Galaxy S7 will have completed four years on the market, but Samsung continues to keep it updated.

The previous security update for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge brought the December 2019 patch, though as is the case with such old devices, that update wasn’t released everywhere. The January security update has been released for users of the Galaxy S7 on UK carrier O2, and we will have to wait and see if the same update will be rolled out in other markets. As you would expect, the update brings no new features or enhancements other than the latest security fixes.

The update is currently out only for Galaxy S7 owners but should soon be released for the Galaxy S7 edge as well. It sports firmware version G930FXXS7ETA7 and can be downloaded over the air from the phone’s Settings » Software update menu. You can also update your phone by downloading the firmware for the new update from our firmware archive and installing it using a Windows PC.

Are you still using a Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 edge? Have you received this update on your phone or any other update in the last couple of months? Let us know down in the comments!
