Samsung rolls out April security update to Galaxy S7 and S7 edge in Europe

Just over two weeks after they were released by Google, Samsung has begun rolling out the latest round of Android security patches to two of its high-end devices in Europe.

The April security update is now making its way to the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge in European markets, bringing fixes for dozens of vulnerabilities in the OS, along with 16 issues unique to Samsung's own software. Samsung also released the update for its brand new Galaxy Tab S3 this week.

The update will be available first to unlocked models of the S7 and S7 edge, before eventually heading to those handsets sold by carriers. Some mobile operators are better than others when it comes to deploying these patches; in the US, for example, Sprint delivered the March security update to Samsung's Galaxy Note 4 at the end of last month, but it didn't arrive to that device on T-Mobile until a few days ago.

Google is already working on its next monthly security update - and accidentally pushed an internal build with those patches to some Pixel XL owners this week.
