In mid-January, Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge started receiving the latest Android 7.0 Nougat update and eve before all units receive the new OS, the company is already sending out a small bug fixing update to the S7 Edge.
From what it looks like, this update is not a major one. It weighs about 15.2MB and once installed, it will up the software version of your Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge to G935FXXU1DQAS. This is a small update and as such, the company has not included any specifics as far as what it exactly brings is concerned. Nonetheless, be sure that your phone will be updated with the latest bug fixes, performance improvements as well as better stability.
Despite rolling out in early February, it seems Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge users will still have to wait a little bit longer for this month’s Android Security Patch, which Google has yet to release. Despite a missing changelog, we expect to see one once the update starts hitting all Galaxy S7 Edge units across the globe.
The current update is coming out as an OTA and as such, not all Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge handsets will receive the notification at the same time. In fact, it might take a while before all devices receive this bug fixing update. Still, there is room for manually checking for its availability, which can be done by going to the phone’s Settings>About device>Software update>Download updates manually. However, this process doesn’t guarantee that you’ll get the update ready for downloading on your phone. Alternatively, you can simply relax and wait for the OTA notification to hit your S7 Edge the normal way, but as noted earlier, this could take a few days.
Keep in mind that the ongoing bug fixing update from Samsung is only rolling out to the curved Galaxy S7 Edge and not the flat screen S7 variant. Whether the same update will also be available for the latter device is still unknown.
