The update is recommended for installation to avoid errors
Samsung has released an unexpected update for the Galaxy S7 smartphones.
Typically smartphones receive major Android updates within two years of release, followed by security updates for another year. However, there are a number of exceptions in this tradition, especially from Samsung.
One of these exceptions was the Samsung Galaxy S7 smartphones, which debuted back in 2016. Despite the end of scheduled support in April this year, in May the Korean manufacturer released a security update for the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge with a fix for the critical vulnerability SVE-2020-16747. It concerns the Qmage image format (.qmg) and has been present in all the company’s smartphones released since 2014.
Now Samsung has begun rolling out the “unscheduled” update for the Galaxy S7 series again. The company does not provide a lot of information about it, it only strongly recommends installing an update to avoid errors.
