Maybe the Samsung Galaxy S7 They met their quarterly security update cycle, but they have not stopped receiving updates: the manufacturer is updating it again with the September patch. An achievement for mobiles that have been on the market for more than four years.

One of the most common problems in Android is the one with the updates, a problem that most users suffered at some time. In fact, if you are one of those who has been in the system for a few years, you will surely have run into the inability to update your smartphone after a couple of years. And hopefully, they are not usually distributed or security updates. That is why Samsung’s attitude towards its Galaxy S7 family is so notorious: the company once again updates its security patch after having exhausted the cycle.

The security update has started to be released in some territories where both phones were distributed, The Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. As confirmed Sammobile, said update is circulating in the United States and Canada, waiting to be extended to a greater number of territories. We have checked our Spanish Samsung Galaxy S7 and have not received it yet.

The Samsung Galaxy S7 exhausted their cycle of security updates (the last patch we have is March 2020), hence the surprise after finding a new patch. This update has a weight of almost 70 MB, fixes numerous security bugs on the phones involved and should also improve performance. Always without uploading the Android version or the layer since the Samsung Galaxy S7 stay on Android 8 Oreo with Samsung Experience.

It is expected that the new security update will spread throughout all territories beyond the United States and Canada. If you have a Samsung Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge, check your phone’s updates to see if it is available.
