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.

Awesome news for S7 and S7 Edge users. I received mine yesterday for the BlackBerry PRIV: http://crackberry.com/blackberry-priv-november-beta-update-now-available It's great to see that some OEM's are keeping up with the quick releasing of monthly security patches. Every OEM needs to do this, as the security patches are arguably more important than OS updates.

This has nothing to do with the S7 Edge receiving its security updates. Seems like you are pandering to blackberry here in an article that isn't about it.

Extreme bumburn detected, as well pure hypocritical BS since you pander to Apple in articles that have nothing to do with Apple. I suggest you apply aloe and a cool, damp cloth for immediate anal pain relief.

Don't get salty just because you got called out. What you posted was irrelevant to the article at hand.

Stop being so bumburned because I called you out on your obviously hypocritical response (that you can't deny, thank you very much), and get over the fact that you're anally wounded because of the facts I posted.

You're the only bumburned one here. You're seething with anger just because I called you out on plugging blackberry in an article that has nothing to do with blackberry.

Extreme anal wound detected, because I called you out on your hypocrisy. You're in so much pain right now that I can feel it through my tablet screen.

My Samsung Galaxy Note 3 on T-Mobile just got the September Security update last week. While not the Nov update I was extremely surprised and happy.

No one asked you respond to my comment #1, but you did, so get over the fact that I'm responding to you here. Nothing you can do about it, anyway.

After the last update to my Galaxy S7, my battery life had been very noticeably worse?? Anyone else have this problem? I've had it since release day.

I've had my phone since march 12, after first update i would always get strange error message when i first turned my phone on saying your headphones are now unplugged however there where none plugged in, my phone was saving pictures and i was unable to retrive my pictures for my brother's graduation, weddings and anything important life had to offer, my phone memory card slot was not working, phone was always hot, i bought it is to get it fixed just about a month after it came out. They fixed it and it worked temporarily not its back to being silly.
