T-Mobile Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge now receiving security updates

samsunggalaxys7edge

The Galaxy S9 and S9+ may be Samsung’s latest and greatest right now, but there are still plenty of people out there using previous generation Galaxy S devices, and now two of those models are receiving a software update.

T-Mobile says that its Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge are now receiving updates, and TmoNews reader Rick received his GS7 edge’s update this morning. The Galaxy S7 is being bumped to version G930TUVS4BRC1, while the Galaxy S7 edge is being updated to version G935TUVS4BRC1. Both updates are small, coming in at around 46MB.

As for what’s included, Galaxy S7 and S7 edge owners can expect the April 2018 Android security patches. Also included are “various bug fixes”.

These updates are now going out over the air, so you should see your Galaxy S7 or S7 edge’s update in the coming days. If you’d rather not wait, you can manually check for the update by going into Settings > Software update > Download updates manually.

Thanks, Rick!

    Does that mean that 8.0 is not close? I was reading that there could be 8.0 updates in April.

  • This update bricked my Galaxy S7 Edge.

    • Worth mentioning I am using Ting instead of t-mobile but was originally a t-mobile phone…..

        Hope you backed up your data.

        Can you do a factory reset still or what are your options?

          I think at worst, he should be able to reflash his phone to the original firmware.

        • factory reset didn’t help the issue =/

  • HuggyBear

    I had no issues what so ever, clean install. Thanks “T-Mo”.

    When will receive Oreo updates?

  • Arch Stanton

    I love the security updates but for some reason T-Mobile or Samsung refuses to release OREO or fix the broken WIFI issue and resetting on my $800 phone.

    They are aware of it and blame Samsung.
    Just as Samsung is to blame for forced updates that break the phone.
    Just like Samsung is to blame for the T-Mobile bloatware.
    Just like Samsung is to blame for the locked Bootloader.

    Well, Samsung and T-Mobile will no longer receive my business.

    Everyone is willing to pass the buck until that bill is due for your expensive smart phone then they know exactly where you live and your account number.

    I won’t be getting that update.
    Sold my 2 year old S7 for 350.00 & picked up mid tear LG K20 Plus.
    The LG runs smoother , better battery life – SOT 6.5 hours , removable battery is major plus.

    Only down side I’ve found on making cheap lg phone move.
    No Samsung Pay.
