Google continues to deliver monthly security updates to Android devices as promised. Now, next to the Nexus devices that usually are the first in line, the September security patch is ready for the following handsets: Samsung Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 Edge, BlackBerry Priv, as well as "the world's most secure phone," namely BlackBerry DTEK50.

The update is not a major one, as it brings only some tweaks and fixes that take care of various issues. It also includes two minor patches released earlier this month and dated September 1 and September 5. The OTA binary image files can be downloaded from the Google Developer website. For now, only the unlocked Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge can be updated, but the T-Mobile and Vodafone models should get compatible firmware soon as well.

At last, BlackBerry Priv and DTEK50 handsets will get the new security patch soon as well, no matter their flavor. Next to the unlocked versions, these smartphones also have Amazon and ShopBlackBerry variants.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
