Following the lines of the Galaxy S6, this pair came to bring the curved screen to the most famous line from Samsung. The first curved screen arrived with Note Edge, but it was with the Galaxy S7 Edge that this trait began to gain new strength.
Now that they have been celebrated for more than three years, the updates are scarce for all of their users. Samsung usually gives two years of system updates to their top of the range, at best. That is, the most likely is that the Samsung Galaxy S7 will not receive the Android Pie.
But until then there is still official support from the company. This means that security updates will continue to reach this top-tier pair, at least for now.

Anyway, the fact is that the Samsung Galaxy S7 has already started receiving a new security update. This brings with it the latest Google security patch, dated September 1.
