T-Mobile Rolls Out Galaxy S6, S6 edge, and S6 edge+ March 2017 Security Updates

T-Mobile Galaxy S6, S6 edge, and S6 edge+ are getting the March 2017 Android security patch updates. These updates were still in Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow base, and not the much awaited Android 7.0 Nougat update yet.

Speaking of the Android 7.0 Nougat updates, it seems like it might be delayed for a while until the Galaxy S8 and S8+ launch this month. So the rolling out might begin for next couple of months.

Anyways, here goes the update’s details of the said devices.
