Samsung Galaxy S7 updated with security enhancements, Android Pay button

Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge owners in Canada have received a system update that brings improvements to Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.

The total size is approximately 41MB and reportedly removes Shomi from the device — which will officially shutter November 30th — and also adds various Google security enhancements to the phone.


In addition and most importantly, Rogers owners are reporting this update allows Android Pay to be installed on the device, though unfortunately a credit card still can’t be added as a payment option.

Android Pay is expected to launch in Canada at some point in the near future. The recently released version 7.1 update to Android Pay’s app includes references in its code to Interac, Canada’s debit card payment network.
