Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge get September security patch in Europe
If you're rocking the unlocked version of the Samsung Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 edge in Europe, the September security patch is now available for your device. Firmware version XXU1BPHJ not only shores up security, but as we've seen through similar S7 updates across the world, bundles the Galaxy Note 7's refined Gallery app. There's also new-found compatibility with Samsung Cloud — another feature that first appeared on the company's hot new phablet — so this update is certainly worth the trouble of installing. 

As noted by SamMobile, Samsung has taken the seemingly unusual step of posting a full changelog for this release, so there could be other improvements yet to be established within this latest care package.

If you own the unlocked Galaxy S7 or S7 edge in Europe, the minor update should be on its way through cyberspace. If you'd like to take more proactive steps to avail the latest patch, head over to Settings > About Device > Software Update to grab it manually. 

We'll be sure to update this post should we find any unspecified changes. If you happen to update and discover any potentially noteworthy features of your own, do let us know in the comments.

Bldy dumbass dopey fools. I updated my S7, after there was a huge battery drainage. Samsung knew the Exynos was faster and had a better battery lasting than the Snapdragon S820. So they send an update to cripple the phone. Arshles. Same happened to my friends S7Edge after updates.

And by next year when S8 gets announced Samsung would give 0 f**ks about S7 security and updates. Got to love the people supporting a company that s**ts on them just a year after owning their product.

Hey they sold people a phone that explodes, and only asked 1350 Australian dollars for the privilege. Friend of mine asked when the Note 7 will get Android 7, all the Samsung rep could say is its been "confirmed" Android 7 is out now, yet it's "confirmed". What about S6/7? Why don't they have Android 7. IOS 10 will release in a few days, and all iPhones/iPads from last 3-4 years will get the update within a week.

So what? Apple develops iOS, so it's easier and faster for them to update their devices as soon as the developement is done. Since the updates passes through them alone, and they do not have a smartphone model with two different SoC variants, like the S7. Samsung has to wait for the Android OS from Google, then will need to begin modding it into TouchWiz. Do you know howmuch time it the takes to test-proof it? And the carriers also take their own time to add their apps and services, before releasing the update. Stop spewing illogical stuffs.

Huh? The >2 year old S5 had the august security update, as did fpr example the Note 4. I have little doubt that september is about to follow... If you want to complain about security updates, get with the times and talk about phones older than ~2.5 years or the lowest budget (below J class) ones.

My samsung S6 edge+ most times gets very hot and battery drain fast after recent security patch. I wish I never updated.
