Samsung Galaxy S7 & S7 Edge getting March Security update from AT&T.

Samsung Galaxy S7

Today is the day when Samsung is going to launch the much-awaited and may I add, much-leaked Galaxy S8 smartphone from Samsung’s S series. Samsung has been gearing up for this launch event as much as anything because Samsung had only one flagship device last year after the debacle of its Note series of phone, the Note 7. The company has already promised extreme steps and measures to do security checks for the battery department of the Samsung Galaxy S8 smartphone. Though, as we reported yesterday also, Samsung has not stopped the updation of its older smartphones as the new smartphone is going to launch.

Yesterday, we saw that Samsung has started to roll out the Samsung Note 5 with the Android 7.0 Nougat update along with the March Secuirty Patch update. Now, the U.S carrier AT&T has been busy updating the Samsung’s flagship from the last year, Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge with the March Security update patch.

AT&T is rolling out a minor software update to the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge handsets. Arriving with the firmware build G930AUCS4BQC2 for Galaxy S7 and G935AUCS4BQC2 for Galaxy S7 Edge, the update installs March security patch on both the smartphones.

The update is on the roll as we speak and you should receive a notification to install it once it reaches your device. Or alternatively, you can also check for it manually from Settings > About device > System updates section.

Apart from the March security patch, there’s no information on the changes that the update brings along. But, as is the case with most of the updates, you can expect a few bug fixes and stability optimizations.

As for the update which can hit your phone anytime soon, make sure to download the update correctly on a stable WiFi network as to ensure a stable updation process.
