Samsung Galaxy S7/S7 edge getting March security update

Himanshu, 18 March, 2016

A week after they officially went on sale, both Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge have started receiving this month's Android security update. Specifically, T-Mobile has already started the roll-out, while Verizon will begin pushing the update on March 18.

While T-Mobile doesn't explicitly say that it's Android's March security update, Verizon's update page clearly mentions that the update includes "the most up to date Android security patch." The T-Mobile update carries a build number of UVS2APB8, while the Verizon's arrives as build number VRS2APB4.

With two of the Big Four US carriers rolling out the update, we assume that the other two - AT&T and Sprint - will also get into action soon. In case you don't already know, this is not the first update for the edge variant, which received a small but urgent update a day before the devices' official launch.
