Galaxy S7 Edge is the first to receive June security patches from Samsung


Unlike Android updates which require manufacturers to fiddle with software thus taking time, Samsung has been on top of things when it comes to its monthly security patch updates. The Galaxy S7 Edge appears to be the first Samsung-branded handset to get the June patches, and the month is yet to even start.

Galaxy S7 Edge owners is Spain have reported the arrival of the June security patch update. This means it should only be a few days before owners in other nations begin getting it. Like usual, the update is a small package because it includes no new features. It contains only security patches from Samsung, therefore no changes will be made to the interface.

The update will rollout over-the-air to the specified handset, which typically takes a week to reach everyone. If you’re feeling impatient, try going in your device settings under ‘About Phone’ and then ‘software updates.’

It shouldn’t be long after the rollout to the Galaxy S7 Edge that other flagships from Samsung get the security treatment. We’ll keep you notified.
