Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge receiving March Security update from Sprint.

Samsung has already been a hugely changed device manufacturer after the Note 7 debacle and the company is trying very hard to salvage some lost pride and reputation by doing all it could to please its existing customers as well as please and attract the new customers to buy a Samsung phone. As a part of this effort, we already saw how Samsung during its S8 launch mentioned multiple times that they are now putting absolute emphasis for device safety. Another thing with Samsung phones that users are not happy about is the lack of updates from Samsung. Now it seems that there is a constant effort from Samsung to change its reputation.

This time around, its Sprint one of the U.S carriers whose Galaxy S7 and S7 edge units are receiving a new firmware update which installs the March security patch. The update is a minor one and weighs around 50MB.

Arriving as build number G930PVPS4BQC1 for Galaxy S7 device on Sprint network, the March security patch update also brings regular bug fixes and system enhancements. Sprint Galaxy S7 edge is receiving the firmware update as build number G935PVPS4BQC1. One thing to note is that Galaxy S7 and S7 edge on Sprint are already running the Android Nougat OS which was released by the network in February.

The OTA update rollout is a staged rollout which means that the carrier will rollout the update to a limited user base and will test if there are any bugs in the update. If the update is stable enough for a wider rollout, the update will come to your phone. If you do not want to wait, you can check for it right away by going to Settings > About device > System updates. But before hitting the download button ensure that your handset is at least 50 percent charged and connected to a WiFi network.
