Samsung has rolled out a small but urgent software update for the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge.
"Urgent new software updates are available for your device. Update your software to the latest version to prevent errors from occurring," says the software update message.
Samsung does not indicate the purpose of the software rollout but given that the message is marked "urgent" it is best to install the update.
The message was first spotted by a Twitter user, who was prompt to share it with others.

The Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge are two of the most-awaited smartphones of 2016. The devices are packed with high-end specs and also have a stylish design.
The Galaxy S7 edge sports a 5.5-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED screen with 2,560 X 1,440 pixel resolution and 534 ppi. The U.S. version of the phone has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor while the international model of the handset is powered by an Exynos 8 chipset. Both the iterations have 4 GB of RAM.
The Galaxy S7 edge is equipped with 12-megapixel rear-facing and 5-megapixel front-facing cameras. The device uses f/1.7 lenses on the front as well as on the rear camera. The latest Samsung offering has 3,600 mAh battery, which is expected to give long usage time. The phone also supports wireless charging.
Samsung has announced the new Galaxy flagships in 32 GB and 64 GB models; however, the 64 GB model will be available only in select markets.
The Korean company was criticized for not including a microSD card slot in the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge. However, Samsung has introduced a microSD card slot in the new devices, allowing users to expand the memory to up to an additional 200 GB.
The Galaxy S7 edge comes running on Android 6.0 Marshmallow, which brings a number of new features to Android devices.
The Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge are IP-68 certified, which means both the handsets are dust and water resistant.
Smartphones normally receive several software updates but a software rollout before the official release of a handset is not very common. Customers can only hope that the latest update will fix any issues and they get a seamless experience from their brand-new Galaxy S7 edge.
