A New Update is Now Rolling Out to the Galaxy S7 and S8 Variants on AT&T


Both the flagship handsets from 2016 and 2017 are getting
some care from AT&T in the form of a firmware update. Not much was made
clear by the source of the news or the change log, but it is clear that this is
a security update. Whether this is any version of the Android monthly updates
or not is something that we are not sure of either. In any case, you should
download and install it as soon as possible, since carriers in the US seldom
push out updates unless they are necessary (that’s not always a good thing mind
you!).


The update is arriving on all the six models in the Galaxy
S7 and S8 series, which include the S7, S7 Edge, S7 Active, S8, S8+ and the S8
Active. As per The Android Soul, the
following are the firmware build numbers for the respective devices.


S7, S7 Edge and S7 Active: BRD1

S8 and S8+: CRD4

S8 Active: BRD4


Unfortunately for S7 users in the US who are on AT&T, all
three devices are still running on Android Nougat, in spite of the OS being on
the verge of becoming outdated.
