The US-based tele-carriers are always a bit lagging behind when the latest security update is in question regarding the flagship devices. Mostly we have observed the firmware updates seeded by these carriers are late but bring in the most sought upgrades and security fixes for the devices. It’s almost 3rd week of September, but the firmware of August build has started making rounds for the flagship devices of Samsung.  We are talking about the August 2017 security update for Galaxy S7 (Edge). This security update is being seeded by US-based carrier T-Mobile. This update weighs around 290 MB. So, we think that this update just brings the regular monthly security updates and few other device related enhancements and optimizations.

This update will take the T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge to the firmware build number G930TUVU4BQH7 and G935TUVU4BQH7 respectively based on Android 7.0 Nougat. The said update primarily addresses the security flaws and aims to bring device stability enhancement and regular bug fixes. This update is rolling out as an OTA update. Since it is rolling in waves, it will take a bit of time but will gradually become available for every device. But if you are not into the waiting game, You can also manually download and install the firmware. You have to directly get it from Samsung servers. We have detailed the same later in this post.
