Samsung just announced the August security patch details; it fixes about 24 Android operating system vulnerabilities and 31 security improvements introduced by Samsung for the One UI interface and some of its apps.
The August 2022 security update also improves the Bluetooth connection, applies three fixes for Samsung DeX, and fixes a potential Samsung Knox vulnerability, and also makes improvements to Smart View and the Phone app.
Here is the list of Samsung devices that will soon receive the update, as they are updated monthly:
- Galaxy S22 / S22 Plus / Galaxy S22 Ultra (already received)
- Galaxy S21/S21 Plus/S21 Ultra (already received)
- Galaxy S21 FE
- Galaxy S20/S20 Plus/S20 Ultra (already received)
- Galaxy S20 FE
- Galaxy S10 Lite
- Galaxy Fold
- Galaxy Z Flip (already received)
- Galaxy Z Flip 3 (already received)
- Galaxy Z Fold 2
- Galaxy Z Fold 3
- Galaxy Note 20 / Galaxy Note 20 Ultra (already received)
- Galaxy Note 10/Note 10 Plus
- Note 10 Lite
- Galaxy A53
- Galaxy A52s 5G
- Galaxy A52
- Galaxy Xcover Pro/Xcover 5
In due course the update will also reach Samsung devices that are updated quarterly such as Samsung Galaxy S10 and S10+ and in theory also Samsung Galaxy Note 9 as the four years of support ends after the summer.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 and Galaxy Tab S6 Lite series Android tablets are expected to receive new security patches this month, plus many mid-range Samsung smartphones like the Galaxy A41, A51 and A71 are on the list of devices that receive an update twice a year, but for these smartphones it’s hard to predict when the update will arrive.
Samsung doesn’t have a logical implementation program for monthly security updates, so it often happens that one device gets the update before another.
Since Android was announced in 2007, I have kept track of it. With each news that came out more, I liked this operating system. I have been learning a lot with it, since I have seen it born and grow, and I hope to continue learning and share my knowledge and experiences about Android, services and applications.
