T-Mobile updates the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge

Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge get March security updates from T-Mobile

The new firmware carries this month's security updates and targets all T-Mobile carrier-branded Galaxy S7 handsets across the US.

Only one week after the official launch, T-Mobile updates the Samsung Galaxy S7 and its sibling, the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. The update is rather small and does not come with any major changes.

According to the official T-Mobile support page, Samsung Galaxy S7 model G930T receives an update to baseband version G930TUVS2APB8, which is obviously based on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. The update apparently started to roll out two days ago, and the only things that T-Mobile reveals about the changes it brings are that it packs no new features and the improvements included are "security updates" and nothing more.

Owners of the Galaxy S7 with G930TUVU1APB6 baseband will be prompted to update automatically until March 25. The process has begun on the 17th and, as usual, those in a hurry can check for the 41 MB update manually. According to SamMobile, Verizon Wireless unleashed a similar update for its Galaxy S7 lineup earlier today as well.

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.
