T-Mobile Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge receive June security patch

The third largest mobile carrier in the United States is rolling out a new firmware update for last year’s flagship smartphones. Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge owners on T-Mobile should keep an eye out for an over-the-air update notification which should pop up on their handset soon if it hasn’t already.

T-Mobile has rolled out firmware version G930TUVS4BQE1 and G935TUVU4BQF6 for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge respectively. These are minor updates so don’t expect much in the way of new features. What they do bring is the all important June security patch.

The security patch for the month of June brings fixes for 96 Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) in the core Android operating system as well as fixes for 23 vulnerabilities that Samsung discovered in its own software.

The official changelog also mentions that this firmware update includes various system improvements. Users can expect the usual slew of performance and stability improvements that are part and parcel of most incremental updates.

T-Mobile subscribers with a Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 edge will receive an over-the-air update notification soon if one hasn’t already landed on their device. The firmware versions mentioned above are also available for download from our firmware section.
