Samsung is rolling out September Android updates containing all security patches starting with its flagship Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge smartphones. Two key features of the updates are Samsung Cloud and Gallery app that were first introduced in the Galaxy Note 7.

Samsung has also released details of the Android security update for September. Along with Google patches, Samsung has fixed patches for nine vulnerabilities and exposures to improve security of Galaxy phones. One of the vulnerabilities that Samsung fixed had affected devices powered with Exynos 7420 chip. As the company explains, "The vulnerability exists due to a null pointer dereference on fimg2d driver. The patch verifies if the object is null before dereferencing it."
