It is that time of the month again when Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge update for August brings new security patches from Google. Being the flagship devices, S7 is the first to receive the latest updates, which usually doesn’t mean anything special.

However, Samsung does have something more than just bug fixes and optimizations for S7 and S7 Edge users. The rather large 151.89MB update file is not only comprised of July-August security patches, but also the Samsung Cloud service.
