The Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge were the tops of the range launched by Samsung in March 2016. Four years after its launch, they received what must be their last security update.

In case you didn’t know, the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge arrived on the market with Android 6.0 (Marshmallow). As usual at Samsung, they received two major software updates, staying on Android 8.0 (Oreo).

After no longer receiving software updates, Samsung chooses to guarantee updates equipment, until they are four years after launch. What is the case with these two models.

From here, if you have one of these devices, Samsung will only do a security update if a critical vulnerability is found that needs to be addressed.

The March 2020 security update has already started to reach some markets, and you can see if it is already available on your device using the Definitions. Then just go to Software Updates.

The next to be left behind will be the Galaxy S8, launched in 2017, which should no longer receive Android 10 launched last year by Google. Conversely, only Apple opposes this trend, with the iPhone 6S launched in 2015 in the latest software version, iOS 13.
