Samsung has released the Android security patch for Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge users for the month of October. The security patch from Google every month brings bug fixes to all Android devices.
The latest security patch is rolling out to the international variant of both the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge in Europe starting with Germany and Netherlands where the firmware version is XXS1BPJ1. The update has also started hitting users in India hinting that other countries will soon receive the patch as well.
The October security patch brings fixes for 68 vulnerabilities for the Android OS but the company has not divulged any details. Samsung has adopted the practice of not divulging such bug issues in detail as hackers can take advantage of them in the time it takes for the patch to be released to everybody.
The update is an over-the-air (OTA) one and is being pushed out in stages so those with carrier models may have to wait longer. If you are on an unlocked international variant of the Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge and have not yet received the update head over to Settings >About Device > Software Update to check for the patch manually.
Prior to this Samsung rolled out an update for the Always On Display (AOD) feature for the two devices adding enhanced functionality. The AOD update was seeded after the company stalled the production and sales for the Note 7 due to safety issues.
