Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge updated with touch improvements

Samsung is updating its Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge smartphones with new touch screen improvements and a fix for skewed photo elements.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Touchwiz-6

Samsung has begun rolling out a new update to its Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge flagships, which is landing in a number of different regions around the world. There are a selection of improvements bundled into the package, including tweaks to the way that touches are handled and a new camera feature to correct skewed looking shapes in photographs.

The new software build (version XXUQAPD1) boasts that touch screen palm rejection is now much better than before, so S7 Edge owners should find that there are fewer accidental presses when using the phone in one hand. The new shape correction feature can now be found as a dedicated toggle under the main camera app’s settings menu. The option states that it corrects distorted shapes in and pictures that you take, although it’s not exactly clear how this works or what it applies to specifically. There are also a selection of smaller improvements to device performance and bug fixes included in the update as well.

The update weighs in at a reasonable 156MB, and should appear over the air in due course or through a manual check under Settings > About device. Alternatively, you can attempt to find the software upgrade through Samsung’s own Smart Switch companion software suite.
