Samsung Galaxy S6 Variants on T-Mobile Seeing The July Android Security Update

Good news this morning for those of you who have a Samsung Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge on T-Mobile.  The carrier is now rolling out the July Android Security Update to these devices and it should be hitting yours sometime this week.  The updates are small, just over 50MB for each of the devices, and mostly focus on brining the July 2017 update to the devices.  There are a few minor fixes and improvements too but the security patch is the big news.

For those with a Galaxy S6, you are looking for version G920TUVS5FQG1 while the S6 Edge will be getting version G925TUVS5FQG1.  Both of these devices received the Android Nougat 7.0 update from the carrier last month.

T-Mobile is one of the better carriers here in the United States when it comes to getting these security updates out to their customers.  They generally get them out 2-3 weeks after Google themselves releases the updates which is frankly an outstanding track record.

The update will come to everyone via an OTA update and you can manually check for it by going to Settings>About Phone>Software Update on your devices.  As with most updates, T-Mobile is likely rolling this one out in phases so it may show as not being available for your phone over the next day or two.
