Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge gets April security update
Samsung seems to take security more seriously than ever, since the company has already begun to roll out the Android security patch for April. However, this looks like only a limited release for now, as it only targets Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge handsets in South Korea.
According to Android Authority, this update is quite small, weighing a bit over 120 MB, and was first considered to be the March security patch. Surprisingly enough, the Android security patch level field in the Software info section leaves no room for misunderstandings, as it clearly says "April 2, 2016." The update was installed on the SKT Galaxy S7 Edge, model SM-G935S. The kernel version it uses is 3.18.14-7542290, dated March 24th.
The same source mentioned above claims that "It is also likely that the country’s other two major carriers, KT and LG U+ will be receiving updates as well, if they are not already in the process." However, SKT Galaxy S7 Edge was still stuck with the February patch this morning, while the Galaxy S7 handsets in the US already received the March security patch.
Considering all the above, we should hear about the Galaxy S7 handsets in the US receiving the April patch as well pretty soon, but probably that will only happen next month.
