Samsung seems now to be more committed than ever when it comes to updating its phones with the latest security patches. Just a few days after we reported on the Galaxy J1 mini and Galaxy A7 (2017) January security, the latest report from China suggests that two flagship Galaxy phones are now receiving the January update.
Sammobile reports that the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge units in China are currently receiving an update from Samsung. The update carries the Android security patch for the month of January, it is labeled with the version number G9300ZCU2BQL3 and G9350ZCU2BQL3 for the Galaxy S7 (SM-G9300) and Galaxy S7 edge (SM-G9350) in China, respectively.
The update specifically addresses six critical vulnerabilities in the Android operating system, while also addressing several low, moderate and high-risk vulnerabilities associated with the OS. The update also safeguards users against 13 Vulnerabilities and Exposures (SVE) items identified in Samsung’s custom software, so installing the update should be of utmost importance to all Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge users in China.
The update is available OTA, but might not be immediately available for all eligible device, so you may have to chill a bit, otherwise, you can go to your device Settings > About Device > Software Updates to manually check if the update is available to your device. We advise you ensure your phone has enough battery juice and connected to a Wi-Fi network for a better experience.
