Samsung Galaxy S7 Devices Receiving Another Bug Fixing Update

The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge and the regular Galaxy S7, running on the latest version of Android 7.0 Nougat, are receiving another update which is said to be able to fix some bugs in the software. The update comes with the build number G930FXXU1DQB3 and G935FXXU1DQB3, and is around 98.11MB. However, just like the previous update which was rolled out a few days ago, it doesn't seem as if the update comes with the latest security patch for the month of February. Samsung has yet to release the full changelog for the update, but the company will likely do so once the update has been pushed out to all devices. It should also be noted that this update is currently being rolled out to the Galaxy S7 series in the United Kingdom.

If you are residing in the United Kingdom and own a smartphone from the Galaxy S7 lineup, then you should check whether the latest update is available for your device. In order to do so, simply head to Settings and select About Device. Once doing so, tap on Software Update and tap on the option titled Download Updates Manually, and the update should pop up if it is ready for your device. Alternatively, you could wait for the system to prompt you to install the latest update when it is available for your device. However, for that to happen, you will need to have at least 50 percent of battery life remaining in your device or have it plugged into an outlet. If you haven't received it yet, do be patient as the OTA update is rolled out in stages to avoid the possibility of the servers being overloaded.

Just last week, a bug fixing update was rolled out to the Galaxy S7 series, though it was pretty small in size, coming in at only 15.13MB. Samsung began rolling out Android 7.0 Nougat to the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge a few weeks back, and the update  brought many new features to both devices. This includes the Blue Light Filter, and an improved Always On Display mode which now lets users to tap notifications on the display to access them. However, the rollout is not yet complete, and a Samsung customer service agent has mentioned that the update may not hit devices in some regions by the end of the first quarter of 2017.
