Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge gets urgent software update

Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge gets urgent software update March 2016
Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge
The update is as small as 3.3 MB and its description only contains one item - Edge screen.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge and Galaxy S7 still have to reach many markets and carriers around the world, but some happy customers already had the new flagships for a few days. Unfortunately, it looks like these units that shipped early have some issues, so an urgent software update was needed to take care of them.

The urgent software update for the Galaxy S7 Edge has only 3.32 MB in size, and the changelog is rather cryptic. The update message says "Update your software to the latest version to prevent errors from occurring" but does not reveal any error. However, the update details section says "Edge screen" and nothing more. 

The update comes via OTA as usual, but those in a hurry can check manually using the Settings app. We will probably hear again about the Edge screen-related problem in the near future, especially if Samsung decides to add this minor update to a larger firmware release and to provide more accurate details about the fixes it brings.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
