If you live in the US and you own a Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge under contract Sprint, your October security patch has finally arrived. The update arrives after half the month of November is gone but hey! At least it’s here right? I am aware that it’s way too late but then again, Samsung has not been very timely with their monthly security updates recently and this is a carrier update, which usually takes longer.
If you own the Galaxy S7, the update should reach you in the form of firmware version G930PVPU5BQJ3, while if you own the Galaxy S7 Edge, the same update will reach you via firmware version G935PVPU5BQJ3. In case you are thinking about the November security patch, that is a riddle that no one will be able to solve right now! Just when we were beginning to think that Samsung might skip the November patch altogether, like it did with the September security patch, the Galaxy A5 (2017) had started to receive this month’s security update just yesterday. We will have to wait and see how Samsung and the US carriers play this one out.
