Samsung Releases the August Security Update for the Galaxy S7

17 August, 2017 Samsung Updates

The Galaxy S7 has just started to receive the Security Maintenance Release from Samsung in Netherlands. However, we are pretty sure that by the time you are reading this, it has already started rolling out in a few other locations as well. Unlike the 600MB August security patch which the Galaxy S8 received just a few days ago in a number of regions, this one is a very slim 23MB OTA package. Nevertheless, it still contains fixes for all 50 of Android's security fixes for the month, along with 12 of Samsung's own.


Although the initial report concerned the Galaxy S7, more recent reports are indicating that the same update is also rolling out for the Galaxy S7 Edge, which is good news. In a somewhat unexpected turn of events, a post by SamMobile notified us that the Galaxy S8 and S8+ in Netherlands is yet to receive the August security update, which is strange, given that it's usually the latest flagship handsets that get the latest updates before any other handsets.


Head over to our firmware section to find all the latest available updates for your Samsung smartphones and tablets.
