Samsung has just started rolling out the June security patch along with the camera fixes for the Galaxy S7 and the S7 Edge in the UK. The new update is being released in phases for the flagship handsets as part of the company's monthly update schedule in multiple regions across the globe.
With Samsung choosing to entirely skip the May security patch for the UK users of Galaxy S7, the new bug-fix update gains precedence.
As SamMobile reports, the update also addresses a random cover-recognition issue apart from the initial video playback flickering issue with camera recording, and an intermittent issue that prevents use of camera from the lock screen on devices equipped with S View cover.
The update reportedly weighs in at 329MB in Europe while other regions have a smaller over-the-air (OTA) file size of 73MB, albeit with the same fixes. Curious users may head over to their device's settings > software update and tap on Check Now or Update Now button to verify if the new update is available in their country or region.
It must be noted that the Wi-Fi calling feature has now been disabled on the Galaxy S7, which can be re-enabled via call settings. However, enabling the feature could throw up a warning message stating that all mobile carriers are not supporting it as it could affect the battery life of the handset.
Furthermore, it is confirmed that the unlocked variants of Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge will receive the update first, followed by the locked devices.
