Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge on Sprint Getting June Security Update

Yesterday, T-Mobile started rolling out the June Android Security update to the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge on their network.  Today, Sprint has followed suit.  The update is build G930PVPU4BQF3 for the Galaxy S7 while the S7 Edge will be getting build G935PVPU4BQF3.  The update for either device comes in at just under 300MB in size and it is recommended that it be downloaded via Wi-Fi and that you have at 50% of battery left prior to trying to install it.

The release notes for the updates are somewhat generic in describing what is addressed.  The security is improved thank to the new Android Security patch level but there are also “device stability & improvements”.  There are also performance improvements but again, not specific is called out.  This is similar to the T-Mobile release yesterday which just indicated “various system improvements”.

The update is rolling out now but it will take a few days to hit everyone.  You can always do a manual check for the update by going to Phone Updates in Settings but that doesn’t always make the magic happen.  If you decide to wait for it to hit your Samsung Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge, it will be like other updates which will give you an indicator on your phone for you to install it.  All in, expect about a 15 minute install time with a reboot of your phone.
