Another patch released for the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge

22 May, 2016 Samsung Updates

If you own any one of the two Samsung flagship smartphones, you should receive a notification for another new update very soon. This one will upgrade the firmware to version FXXU1APE9. The Korean OEM wasn't particularly famous for releasing fast and rapid updates, but this year, things have changed for the good. Multiple updates have been rolled out since the two phones were released in March, addressing bugs and improving stability in the process.

This one fixes a complex issue in which the power saving mode was disabled as soon as Google Now was launched. It will also resolve the initial flickering that some users complained about while playing back recorded footage. Users will be able to save files to the SD card without any problem now and according to Samsung, "icon location cycle has been changed to improve screen clarity" on the Always On display.

The update is a midsized 332MB file for the S7, and a 353MB one for the S7 Edge. It is an OTA update as usual and we recommend the use of Wi-Fi for downloading them. Although you should receive an automatic notification, you can always check from Settings >About device >Check for updates to see if the patch has arrived on your device yet.
