Samsung Brings August 2022 Security Firmware To Galaxy S20 With New Software

Published

on


Samsung updates its two years old flagships with the unprecedented security patches of August 2022 in advance of everyone else: fresh firmware is actually being distributed for the Samsung Galaxy S20, Samsung Galaxy S20+, and Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra.

Samsung Galaxy 20 August 2022 Security Firmware:

A few hours ago, the August 2022 Android Security Patch rolled out for Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S22 in Europe. The Samsung Galaxy S20 series is preparing to accept the August 2022 security patch, even before Google releases them. The firmware G98*BXXUEFVG5 is also being used to deploy the upgrade in Europe but does not seem to include other important innovations.

The series has three models namely:

  • Galaxy S20 Ultra (SM-G988B) – G988BXXUEFVG5
  • Galaxy S20+ (SM-G985F) LTE – G985FXXUEFVG5
  • Galaxy S20+ (SM-G986F) 5G – G986FXXUEFVG5
  • Galaxy S20 (SM-G981B) 5G – G981FXXUEFVG5
  • Galaxy S20 (SM-G980B) LTE – G980FXXUEFVG5

What’s New:

Based on the manufacturer’s changelog, Galaxy S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra are receiving improvements in overall feature stability, as well as the usual performance refinements and elimination of some unspecified bugs. With the new firmware currently rolling out, some of the Samsung apps, such as Galaxy Wearable, Samsung Internet, Samsung Health, SmartThings and Samsung Members, will also be updated. We will have to wait a few more days for details on security improvements, as Samsung usually talks about it earlier this month.

The required download is still quite substantial for a minor update: it is about 240MB, so we advise you to rely on a Wi-Fi network so as not to affect the Giga of your mobile offer.

The update with the security patches of August 2022 is also distributed in Germany on Samsung Galaxy S20, Samsung Galaxy S20+ and Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra, starting as (almost) always from non-brand models. To update via OTA you can go to the system settings, following the path “Settings > Software Updates > Download and Install“. In case of negative outcome, do not despair: just try again within a few hours or at the maximum of a day.

Samsung is on the streak to distribute the May 2024 security patch update for eligible devices. Moving forward for the session, the company has rolled out the latest security patch for the Galaxy S20 series and Galaxy S21 FE devices. 

Notably, with the latest development, the Korean giant is distributing the May 2024 security patch update to the Galaxy S20 series and Galaxy S21 FE in Europe and South Korea. More specifically, the update for Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, and Galaxy S20 Ultra devices reached South Korea and Europe with the firmware version numbers G98*NKSS4IXE4 and G98*BXXSKHXEA, respectively. 

Meanwhile, the Galaxy S21 FE is getting an update in Europe with the firmware version number G990B2XXU7GXE1. The latest update doesn’t bring any significant changelog; it is just a standard changelog that only describes some repeated terms like improving device reliability and stability. The update is coming in a software package of nearly 300 MB, which indicates that the company will not make any significant changes for the devices.

But if you are having any issues while using the devices, then it may be that the game has changed for your devices. According to the official documentation, the latest update will improve the internal functioning of the devices, but it will not be visibly seen on the devices. 

If you want to install the latest update on your device, then you can check the update from the system settings manually, or you can also go directly by touching on the notification that appears to alert you about the update availability.
