Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Running Android 7.0 Nougat Gets Update With Bug Fixes


The Samsung Galaxy S7 edge has been having some issues since upgrading to Android 7.0 Nougat, but a new update now brings some bug fixes.

On the other hand, while the latest update packs bug fixes and stability improvements, it doesn't seem to include the latest Android security patch for February, so that one will most likely arrive a bit later this month.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Update

The new Galaxy S7 edge update carries build number G935XXU1DQAS and it's pretty lightweight, as it only takes up 15.3 MB. Samsung has yet to publish a full changelog for this update, but it will likely release additional details once the rollout is complete and the update has reached all devices.

Galaxy S7 edge users who have yet to receive the update can either keep waiting for the OTA, or manually check for the update's availability by heading over to the device's Settings > About device > Software update. Nevertheless, the OTA should reach all devices soon enough, as it shouldn't take more than a few days for the rollout to complete.

As always, it's recommended to have at least 50 percent of battery life left in your device and have a reliable internet connection to download and install the update. It may not be large in size, but it's still best to ensure the process goes smoothly and without interruptions.

It's worth pointing out that there's no information to indicate that the smaller Galaxy S7 is receiving the big-fixing update as well, but it could get it in the next few days.

Galaxy S7/ S7 Edge Android 7.0 Nougat

As a reminder, Samsung started rolling out Android 7.0 Nougat to the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge last month, reaching beta testers first and then extending availability to the general public.

Most regions, however, only started getting the update last week and U.S. carrier versions of the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge are still waiting for the treat. T-Mobile, for instance, is expected to release the update next week.

The Samsung Galaxy S7 Android Nougat update brings a number of neat features and improvements and should significantly enhance the overall experience on the two Samsung flagship smartphones.

No Detailed Changelog

Without an official and detailed changelog, it remains unclear for now just what bugs and issues the latest update fixes, but it should nonetheless smooth things over for Galaxy S7 edge owners who have already upgraded their devices to Android 7.0 Nougat and encountered some glitches. The update is minor, so don't expect any new features.
