T-Mobile starts pushing Security update for Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge

You must have known that two of Samsung’s much anticipated flagships, the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge were made to public by the manufacturer the previous month in Mobile Congress. While all wait came to an end by this revelation from Samsung, but orders were in abundance and many of the US Carriers who had before shown interest to carry the two new flagships started debuting the devices on the following day of their launch. The date for selling of the devices were fixed on March 11th though, but many of the Carriers were seen shipping the devices much before to the Customers who had pre-registered.

While there is nothing to doubt on the quality and features of both the flagships, T-Mobile just lately started pushing a new update for the two devices. Because both the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge run on the out-of-the-box android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, so there is nothing much to update and hence you can guess that this update is just a minor update. Official sources ensure that the update is only for security patch reason and hence will fix the security patches in your devices.
