Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow
Samsung Galaxy S7 Android Marshmallow updateThe Galaxy S7 came running Google’s latest version of Android, 6.0.1, right out of the box. No device has seen an update beyond this version yet, not even the Nexus range. The Galaxy S7 did, however, receive a minor update on March 17, starting with T-Mobile customers. The update was one of Android’s monthly security patches, which should help keep your device secure.
On T-Mobile, the software version is now UVS2APB8, and Verizon is beginning to issue the same update, under version number VRS2APB4.
To check if your device is ready to download the patches, head to Settings > About device > Software update.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Android N update
The next installment of Android, currently known only by a single-letter moniker, was recently released as a developer preview to a selection of Nexus devices by Google. The finished build should be in the hands of manufacturers this summer.
Given that Samsung has been somewhat sluggish to deliver Marshmallow to its devices, we’re unlikely to see Android N hit any of its devices until early next year, but we’ll keep you posted.
