Carrier-Locked Galaxy S22 Users Can Install October 2022 Security Patch In The US

Samsung has been working hard in recent years to update its devices quickly and extensively, to the point where it is the finest Android OEM in this regard, as we have noticed in our in-depth research of the Android manufacturers that provide the best software support.

The most recent security updates, released on the Galaxy S22 series in the United States as early as three days before the start of October, confirm this pattern. And the company already released latest security patch for unlocked variant users.

The latest update, indicated with firmware version number S90*USQS2AVI1, is aimed at carrier-locked versions of the Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22+, and Galaxy S22 Ultra in the United States. The same build number is seen in the stable update of One UI 5 recently rolled out by Verizon.

According to the changelog, the update contains the October 2022 security patches, improves device privacy and security, and may even include some bug fixes and stability improvements.

As we said, the update is being distributed in the United States, but in the coming days, it should also be available for international versions. Recall that in the US Samsung sells the models with Snapdragon 8 Gen1, while in Europe we have the versions with Exynos 2200.

You can check for updates through the following function:

  1. Go to Settings (by clicking on the gear icon that appears at the bottom right after lowering the notification dropper twice)
  2. Select Software Update
  3. Click Download and Install

Make sure you are connected to a Wi-Fi network or have enough data available if you use your cellular connection.
