Samsung is currently expanding the rollout of the July 2019 security patch to more devices and regions every day. Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are both up and running again. As of now, the rollout appears to be limited to the 2016 Korean flagships, but that should change soon.
The July Security Maintenance Release (SMR) includes fixes for criticals and more than a dozen high-risk Android OS vulnerabilities and 13 Samsung-specific threats. The release does not bring any features to the old flagships, but that should not be a surprise to anyone.
Do you think the security patch may be downloaded to any device at any time? To manually trigger the update, go to Settings, select Software Update, and tap on the Download updates manually option. Alternately, you can download the latest compatible firmware from our database and manually. You can find the Galaxy S7 firmware here and the Galaxy S7 Edge firmware here.
Samsung recently downgraded the Galaxy S7 from monthly to quarterly updates, in accordance with the company's update policy. It means these older flagships are nearing the end of their life and may be getting fewer and fewer software updates going forward. You can therefore expect these updates to be fixed and devoid of any new features.
