T-Mobile Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge receiving November 2017 security patches

samsunggalaxys7s7edge

Days after the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 got a new update, some other Samsung handsets have started getting updates of their own.

T-Mobile is now pushing updates to its versions of the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge. The GS7 update is version G930TUVS4BQJ2 and is 121.99MB in size, while the GS7 edge update is version G935TUVS4BQJ2 and weighs in at 122.55MB.

T-Mo hasn’t updated its Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge support pages with info on this new update yet, so the full changelog isn’t known. TmoNews readers Edmund and American Patriot have received the updates on their phones, though, and have shown that they include the November 1, 2017 Android security patch level.

If you’ve got a T-Mobile Galaxy S7 or S7 edge, you should see an update hit your phone in the coming days. You can also check for it yourself by going into Settings > Software update > Download updates manually.

Thanks, Edmund and American Patriot!

    Just downloaded it but have to charge my phone before I install it. Hopefully there’s a few bug fixes in there too…

      Just curious – what bugs do you see in your S7?

      • TheSwizziest

        I have two bugs that affect me and my wife intermittently. First is a strange texting issue where some of them don’t ever arrive. That seems to be cleared up a little while ago. The 2nd is occasional battery drain. My wife still has that and then it disappears as fast as it arrives. In general, love these phones though. No real complaints.

          My wife and I both still don’t receive all of our text messages. TMobile claims there is a tower issue in our area, but that was weeks ago.

          Recently I found out that I was not receiving quite a few texts. Turns out it was a cache issue on Google Messages app. I switched over to Textra and the issue seems to be resolved.

        • Brett Bertles

          Funny story, I had a similar issue except some of my messages were not sending. I switched from Textra to the stock messaging app, and that seemed to resolve it.

          Technology is strange sometimes.

          They are trying to keep us from using 3rd party apps. Could be just a delay on phone getting used to update.

          In this case it is the 3rd party app trying to keep us from using stock app. Could be just a delay on phone getting used to update.

        • AndTheWorldMayNeverKnow

          I use Signal, I used to have those issues with the stock Samsung messaging app

      • AndTheWorldMayNeverKnow

        Forgot to reply yesterday, mainly some lags with certain apps, excessive battery drain on wifi at times but mainly that’s all. I have the S7 Edge.

        • Awesome Bryner

          Just installed on my s7 edge.

        • Mark

          I’ve got the Edge as well. I get occasional rapid battery drain, but what really drives me nuts is oddball, unexplained slowdown.

        • AndTheWorldMayNeverKnow

          I have the same issues, specifically when on wifi at home. Slowdowns usually occur because of a certain app but using the power save mode has helped. I just keep apps I don’t use from being able to open unless I open then. If you have a lot of apps installed disable notifications and background updates, that can save you a lot of battery drain and cut down on lags

    I was wondering if this update fixes the krack vulnerability?

  • Mike Raffety

    Why was there no patch for September or October? Last one prior to November was August (S7 Edge).
