While the unlocked Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge flagships in the US receive one more Marshmallow update, their siblings on T-Mobile that already got updated to Nougat get this month's security patches.
Codrut Nistor,

Unlocked Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge flagships in the US received their last firmware update back in December. Unfortunately for their owners, that update was not based on Android 7.0. To make it worse, the new update that has begun its rollout yesterday does not bring Nougat, either, leaving these potent handsets stuck with Android Marshmallow for the time being.

The Galaxy S7 SM-G930U and the Galaxy S7 Edge SM-G935U models have just received the firmware versions G930UUES4AQC1 and G935UUES4AQC1. The new software integrates the March security patch but leaves the Galaxy S7 lineup behind older handsets like the Galaxy S6 or Galaxy Note 5, both being updated to Nougat as we speak.

Samsung apologized for this delay a few weeks ago, but now there is no official info about the arrival date of the Nougat update for the unlocked Galaxy S7 lineup. In the meantime, T-Mobile rolled out the firmware versions G930TUVS4BQC1 and G935TUVS4BQC1 to the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge units on its network.

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.
