No exact info
Samsung does not provide accurate information about which vulnerabilities are closed. As a rule, every smartphone owner receives an alert as soon as the update is available.
Because the update is done in stages, not all devices are operated at the same time. It could therefore pass a few weeks before German owners of the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge receive a corresponding notification. You can manually check whether new updates are pending in the menu “Settings – Via the device update”. A full battery and a stable WLAN connection should be used to download.
