Verizon issues Galaxy Note 7 security update on launch day

U.S. carrier Verizon is making a strong launch for the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. Not only did it start shipping the handset to customers ahead of schedule, it's also ready to bring the latest security update for it straight on release day. The carrier updated the device's page, listing the latest build number – MMB29M.N930VVRS1APH1 – and describing the new firmware as an important security patch.

Samsung has already issued the first major update for the device, a 96MB package that delivers important bug fixes, stability improvements and performance enhancements to the ambitious smartphone.

The Galaxy Note 7 is already available in launch markets, such as the United States, both in online shops and retail outlets. Verizon customers are eligible to save $20 off the new Gear VR if they buy a new Samsung phone. Additionally, the carrier will start selling the Gear 360 camera tomorrow, and the new Gear IconX smartwatch is available for pre-order, scheduled to go on sale August 26.
