T-Mobile Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge receiving November security updates


Surprisingly, two Samsung smartphones seem to be among the first to receive the November security patch. It's the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge flagships that are eligible for this maintenance update.

New reports claim T-Mobile is the first carrier in the United States to offer the November security update for the two Samsung smartphones. However, T-Mobile has yet to update its support website to confirm the rollout, so for the time being it seems that it's a limited push.

The update is about 82MB in size for both Samsung smartphones, but the firmware version is slightly different: G930TUVU4PK1 for the Galaxy S7 and G935TUVU4APK1 for the Galaxy S7 edge.

The changelog of the update isn't that conclusive, but confirms “the security of your device has been improved.” However, if you check the phone's software version after updating, you will notice that it says that it features the Android security patch for the month of November.

One other improvement that the update might bring is support for 256 QAM and 64 QAM capabilities. However, this information hasn't been yet confirmed, so we will probably have to wait for T-Mobile to post the official changelog of the update.

We're waiting for the November security update to expand to even more flagship smartphones in the coming weeks, as many carriers are looking to provide their customers with the latest updates as soon as possible.
