A new update is available to install on Samsung Galaxy S7 connected to Sprint, which brings many improvements to the latest flagship, which are related to the battery life and the performance of voice over WiFi. In addition, the update includes the April’s Security Patch, alongside bug fixes and other optimizations.
The Galaxy S7 was released with Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box and Sprint was one of the US carriers that made this device available for purchase starting from March 11. Meanwhile, the flagship was upgraded to 6.0.1 Marshmallow and a few days ago, this carrier released a software update for the Galaxy S7, which weighs around 142MB and carries a build number G930PVPU2APD3 that contains the monthly security patch for April. Sprint hasn’t confirmed if the Galaxy S7 edge will get this update in the next days, but if this will happen, users will receive it over the air, so they will need to be patient. However, those who can’t wait to receive the update notification can head to their devices’ Settings menu and manually check for it.
