Thank you for posting on the Community Forums.
The 6.0.1 software update for the Samsung S7 should be released soon. We have no specific dates available besides Summer 2016.
We appreciate your patience.

Hey @RogersLynne it seems that the Galaxy S7 is already running 6.0.1, my Galaxy is already running it. What @highka is refering to is the monthly security patches that google and samsung have been releasing for quite some time to combat security exploits and improve performance in android phones. Almost every single cell carrier in the world has been pushing these updates within a week or two of their release with the most recent update being the june security patch to the best of my knowledge. It seems that Rogers customers are only patched up to April 2nd, 2016. This means that Android users on the Rogers wireless network are being left with potentially vulnerable versions of the operating system while the rest of the world is having their systems patched on a monthly basis seeing frequent improvements in security and performance.

At this point with any Rogers services should it really surprise anyone on what's delivered to them? I mean it would shock me more if they changed their process on how these udpdates are sent to us rather then how many months behind we are.
Makes you wonder with the higher ups in the company must be using other phones then Android because this surely wouldn't fly with them hearing how long this takes or making them wait.

Pretty crazy we are still on April updates.
When i look at http://live.samsung-updates.com/ its incredible how fast some other carriers outside north america push regular updates. Some of them even still update 4.4.4 on a regular basis!!!!
This might be my last non nexus device...its the latest flagship and updates are still lagging...

Rogers - if you see this...
Here's a thought...
Put together a beta testing program for your firmware updates.
Have customers opt-in and have real testing on the field...im sure people would actually switch carriers to have that..
By opting in, people accept that bugs might be present, and you get them reported much faster...
do it,i dare you
