Samsung Galaxy S7 and BlackBerry Android handsets get a new security patch
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.
