Samsung is sending a second patch update to Galaxy S7 And Galaxy S7 Edge handsets in India, following the December Android Security update that hit the smartphones last week.

To check manually if the security update is ready for download users can access Settings > About Device > Software Update. Users should ideally install the software via Wi-Fi with handsets charged to at least 50 percent.

The update is receiving software version G930FXX1BPLB (G935FXX1BPLB for Galaxy S7 Edge), which is 12MB in size. SamMobile shared screencaps of the update, which detail users can expect a number of stability improvements and bug fixes. Samsung has not announced what the update entails.

The Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge are waiting a major update to Android 7.1.1 Nougat, which should begin somewhere between the end of December and January. The devices currently run Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

The Samsung Galaxy S7 features a 5.1-inch (S7 Edge, 5.5-inch dual-curved) Quad HD display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, a 4GB of RAM and 32GB or 64GB internal storage options with expandable storage up to 256GB, a 12-megapixel rear camera and 5-megapixel front camera, both with f/1.7 aperture and a 3,000mAh battery (S7 Edge, 3,600mAh).
