UPDATE: T-Mobile has updated its support pages for both the GS7 and GS7 edge with info on these updates. According to T-Mo, both updates include “security updates, time/date update, various system improvements.”
UPDATE 2: Neville Ray has confirmed that this update enables 4×4 MIMO for faster speeds and that an update to enable 256 QAM is coming soon.
T-Mobile’s Galaxy S7 and S7 edge are now receiving updates that include the latest September security patches, bringing the security patch level of both phones to September 1, 2016. The changelog included with the update also mentions new Samsung Cloud features, like sync for photos and videos, backup and restore for apps and home screen, and a cloud management menu.
T-Mobile previously said that it’d be pushing new, faster networking technologies to the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge. T-Mo hasn’t published the full changelogs for these updates on its website, so it’s unconfirmed if today’s updates include the new networking features, but some users on Reddit that’ve already updated claim that they’re seeing faster network speeds.
If you’ve got a Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 edge and haven’t yet updated, you can check for your phone’s update by going into Settings > About device > Download updates manually. Once you update, be sure to share your impressions with us!
Thanks, Jesse and David!
