A tipster at Android Central has confirmed that Samsung’s Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are now receiving the July 1st security patch which was release a short time ago. If you recall, a second patch labeled July 5th was also released by Google, however these smartphones aren’t going to be receiving it (at least for now) but rather the July 1st.
The update package weighs in around 340MB, so while relatively small in size, it’s still best to download the installation files over Wi-Fi to save data and avoid overcharges. We also suggest having at least an 80% full battery or simply plugged into a wall outlet so your Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge doesn’t run out of juice during the installation process and possibly cause problems with your device.
To check and see if you have received the updated software, head over to Settings > About phone > Check for Updates. Be aware that this security patch may take a little while to get to most people’s devices as it’s still relatively early in the rollout process. Other Galaxy S7/Edge users locked to other carriers such as AT&T or Verizon should expect to see the new software reach their device within the coming weeks if not days.
