Samsung is among the biggest, most popular names in the world of smartphone technology. The company has been bringing forward numerous updates and upgrades over the past several years. 2016 was a roller-coaster of a year for Samsung and with the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 failing, the company still managed to stay afloat thanks to the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge being one of the best smartphones of the year. Samsung has now officially released the February Android Security Update for these two devices.
The February Android security update is basically the usual security update that comes out for major Android smartphones. It has been rolling out for various devices recently, and the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge have now become the latest smartphones to get it. This update is titled as “G930FXXU1DQB7” for the Samsung Galaxy S7 and as “G935FXXU1DQB7” for the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.
While this is an OTA rollout, it is likely that it will be slow and region-by-region. The Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge devices are now up to date with all the major security updates thanks to the February Android Security Update.
Talking about the February android security update for Samsung smartphones, something really odd happened last week. T-Mobile released this update for the Samsung Galaxy S4, which had last received any sort of an update in December 2015! With this phone turning 4 years old this year, this was really odd. Talking about oddly timed updates, the same February android security update for Samsung Galaxy A3 (2016) came out yesterday, surprisingly before it released for the latest A3 (2017) smartphone.
Samsung is all set to tease their upcoming flagship smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S8 at the MWC 2017 later this month. If speculation are to be believed Samsung is dropping the traditional ‘edge’ branding this time, and is planning to release the upcoming smartphones as Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8 “Plus”.
