Samsung rolls out maintenance update for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge in the UK

Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge owners in the UK are currently receiving a maintenance update for their devices that brings better touch response and camera fixes. It seems to be the same software update that rolled out earlier this week to Galaxy owners in the U.S. and China, although the build number is slightly newer.

Latest Galaxy S7 and S7 edge update hits the UK

This update transports a new feature that’s dedicated to correcting “skewed photos”, along with enhancements for the palm rejection functionality that ships on board the Galaxy S7 edge, which means that users should no longer find themselves opening up applications and placing calls when holding the device with their hand wrapped around the curved display.

There’s the usual unspecified bug fixes and stability and performance improvements. Additionally, the new firmware includes the latest available Android security patch, dated April 2.

If you’re running an unlocked, unbranded UK version of the Galaxy S7 or S7 edge, hit Settings > About device > Download updates manually to see if your update is ready. Network-branded GS7s will, as ever, likely take a little longer to receive the updated firmware.
