Although Samsung's Galaxy S7 lineup should get Android 7.0 Nougat soon, especially the unlocked variants, it looks like there is still room for at least another Android Marshmallow-based firmware. This update has begun its rollout in the United States earlier today, and its main purpose is to fix some security problems.
According to the official changelog, the main issue fixed by the update concerns the SideSync application. This problem's description reveals the following: "Activating the SideSync application before finishing Setup Wizard stage enables bypass of FRP by installing malicious applications. The patch blocks activation of the SideSync application before finishing Setup Wizard stage."
Since the new firmware arrives in stages as it usually happens with OTA updates, those who did not get the notification yet should go to Settings > About Device > Software Update > Download Updates Manually. Once the process is complete, the new build number should be MMB29M.G935UUEU2APG9.
