The update should start rolling out today, according to Verizon support pages. Specifically, the Samsung Galaxy S7 will see software version G930VVRU4BQA2, while the Galaxy S7 Edge will get G935VVRU4BQA2. Verizon hasn’t said how big the update is, but it’ll likely be large. Make sure you have plenty of battery and data remaining on your account before you download this guy over 4G.
So, what should you expect from the update? A lot!
For the most part, this is the update that brings the newest version of Samsung’s TouchWiz that was on the Galaxy Note 7. It’s easily Samsung’s best skin to date, a skin that Verizon is labeling as “a fresh, simple user interface.” It’s a Samsung skin, so it’s not that simple, but it does look a heck of a lot better.
Outside of the fresh new skin, you’ll see a new battery management feature, upgraded multi-window functionality, an option to add an image to Always On Display, and more. Oh, Verizon is also removing go90 (!). The full changelog can be found at the links below.
